In this show, we hear about a life well-lived; it is about a partnership, friendship, love and loss. But it is also a story of consistency, and he claims insanity as he met and married a woman with five children.
“She was the one that made the desert flowers bear fruit.”
In the military, he was IBM trained in Dos and Cobol programming. On leaving the service he could not get work that fitted his skillset, so he went back to college, earned a BBA and MBA, and discovered that he liked accounting going on to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA )
He found work with Texas Instruments as a financial analyst. Charles was in at the beginning of computerised accounting and payroll, and it was the start of the journey.
He left Texas instruments in 1991 to set up a mobile payroll and accounts service from a van. There was an opportunity to provide service too small operations did not have computers, so he brought one with him. That business is still thriving by changing and shifting with technology for over 30 years.
Our conversation explores the history of his life journey; it is also about his value and what it takes to stay motivated. As I said at the beginning, my conversation with Charles is rich with the secrets to living a happy life.
The man is fit and very active at 72 years old, has a plan to live to 106, and I think he will make it; he has a lower resting heart rate than mine. What can I say to that..
