****,***** ****,** ***** • 580-***-**** • firstname.lastname@example.org It is not easy to summarize my life into a paragraph. Basically if you can see my worth and apply me I do great things. Looking and searching for jobs here in Ponca has made me question why I am still here. I have a goal to revolutionize the food industry with geothermal and aquaponics. You can not out train a bad diet and you cant outrun cancer from the chemical we spray on our food. If things do not change we will be lucky to have and food on the table in 10 years. I have a house here and dreams and just need a stable worth while venture to save money and acquire grants and funding. This is not me saying I will drop your company but letting you know I have dreams I plan on fulfilling. If we end up having a great relationship I don't see me leaving anytime soon and I will have assistance and people watching over the farm with me. I learned my lesson on the first Business. You can do it alone, its a long road to unhappiness especially when people do not see the worth. Weather I stay with you or decide to leave you could benefit both ways if I am not there then rest assured I am growing awesome organic food you can buy.

Cars and Coffee Bistro – Ponca City,Ok, Ok
I built it from an empty box, there was literally nothing but a run down building to start from. My father being gone and no friends to help I had to get busy and learn fast. Thanks to YouTube and long distance calls to my father I managed to build from a blank canvas to something truly one of a kind and somehow pass all inspections with flying colors. After building the space I began to fill it with my products that I searched so hard for to bring the cleanest coffee and food Ponca has ever seen. Knowing how Ponca is concerning there fast food diet and lack of knowledge I knew I had a high chance of failure so I had a backup plan. I am what you would call a detail specialist in the automotive field, thus the name makes sense now I am sure. I supplemented my losses in the front with my hard work in the back. Nothing was ideal but I made it work thru lots of sweat and 120 degree days in the back shop. Ponca showed me they still are not ready for this kind of business but that doesn't mean I wont try again. My achievement is I did not fail, everyone from out of town commended me for doing so in a town like Ponca, it was a great experience from start to finish. I never loose I LEARN. Running a business completely alone is not easy but I managed. The list of duties where endless so again I feel privileged to have had the chance to learn. Verified data integrity and accuracy.
Obtained documents, clearances, certificates and approvals from local, state and federal agencies. Entered details such as payments, account information and call logs into the computer system. Sourced the cleanest local beef and chicken (non antibiotic, growth hormone/ organic) had them packaged locally along with the best organic coffee in the united states. Stressed importance to keep things local.

I was on the Road to Mr Oklahoma and this was a was to learn about nutrition and working with clients in a different manner. I quickly relished that there where no benefits to holding my certifications in Ponca as few will pay for the time nor is there a gym that is willing to work in such a manner, everything had to be done under the table which I did not like. I let me certs go years ago but still retain the knowledge acquired.

This job I hated then loved as someone finally saw and put me to my full potential, this job I started off as a simple roustabout for this oil company. Our company started traveling for work when the oil boom hit in the northwest. They where so short handed up there my boss at the time handed me a series of books and said are you as smart as you think you are. I smiled and said I would read and get back to him. A month later I was a pumping stations operator which you usually have to have 4 years of school for. I passed all required test and passed with flying colors on my actual plant assessment. This job is dangerous and you alone are in charge of multi million dollar plants. Sadly I suffered a knee injury and had to come back home for surgery and was unable to acquire my job back due to the fact the company sold. I could have moved to continue this path to North Dakota but a permanent job there for me with another company just was not in the cards.
