My name is Mike Buckley.    In my professional career I’ve sold and marketed consumer goods from 99 cent phonograph needles to sewing machines costing thousands of dollars.

My priorities in life are God, family, country, and business.  The purpose of this blog is to share my experience in the world of small business, social media, and quality management and to invite others to join the conversation.

I’m married and have four grown children, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren.  I’m an ordained Permanent Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church.  I have “retired” from the corporate world.  Savings and investments have put me in a position where I don’t have to work to survive.   That means that everything I do from now on will be done in the spirit of helping others to grow and prosper.

  1. Mike: Was touted onto your site yesterday by REI CEO Sally Jewell as we were having breakfast. I’m retired publisher of a business journal in Seattle, now do a weekly e-column called Flynn’s Harp (appropriate column…and blog…name for the offerings of an Irishman. Raised in a Jesuit parish and educated by them at Gonzaga Prep and Gonzaga University, but not yet aspiring to deacon. Take a look at the blog on emikeflynn.com and let me know if I can add you to the 900 or so who get the weekly e-mail.

    • Mike, Thanks so much for the comment. I’m always glad to have new readers. I’m also pleased to see that Ms. Jewell has been a visitor. I’m a big fan of her company.

      I did subscribe to your newsletter and would encourage other readers to do the same.

      Have a great St. Paddy’s day tomorrow!
