    1975 – 1979 From Entertainment to the Car Business

     Editors Comment: Releasing each chapter the way I’m doing puts a lot of pressure on both me and the reader. If you read an entire book you would judge the book. Reading my book, one chapter at a time, makes you judge the book chapter by chapter. My point is, they all won’t be good, but I still hope you learn something. Comments are always important, even if you just let me know you read it.  ________________ When I left The Raintree, I had been out from under the corporate umbrella...

    1970 – 1975 The Raintree Years

    Editor’s Note: I get a bit descriptive with a subject in this chapter so if you don’t want to read anything that I would classify as semi-adult language, don’t read on. Just to be clear, there were never any Hippies at The Raintree.  _________________________________________       Soon after my success with Production Data Systems, in mid-1969, I started going out almost every night. I had broken up with a girl I had been with for over two years and I was ready to hit the...

    1965 – 1966 Ford Aeronutronics

      When I sold the Doll house I had a rough time getting a job. I had gone on a short vacation blowing the money I had made on the Doll House sale and I hadn’t realized how hard it would be to get a job. At every interview I was told I was over qualified because of the job I had had at AiResearch as a Production Control Supervisor. Things got so bad I was living in a pay by the night cheap hotel. It was an all-male hotel and there actually was a sign outside my window that blinked “CHEAP”...

    1964 – 1965 The Plush Bunny & The Doll House

    In 1960’s Southern California beer bars were in their hey day. There were beer bars that featured entertainment and beer bars that featured topless waitresses. There were beer bars that only sold beer and some that served wine. They usually had any number of pool tables, but those that weren’t topless had entertainment and dancing. One of the biggest beer bars was a place called Lil Abner’s in Long Beach. There was the Whale House, The Tomcat, Apple Annie’s and The Plush Bunny to name a few...

    1968 – 1971 Production Data Systems

    After leaving Burgmaster I immediately formed Production Data Systems Inc, (PSDI) and started marketing my products. I had my boxes of tab cards that were the entire MRP system and I also made a deal to lease the computer owned by Data Systems of San Diego (DSSD. I made a deal so that the computer and facilities would be essentially mine from 6 PM every Friday till 6AM Monday morning. Don Weber, the owner, agreed and the deal would start when I got my first customer. In this way, I could honestly...

    1967 – 1968, Burgmaster

    Editor’s Note: To gain a better perspective you may want to re-read, “1966 – 1967 The Hughes Tool Company, the Union and ME”,  before reading this chapter. 1967 – 1968, Burgmaster One of the reasons I took the time to tell you the war stories while I was at Hughes Tool Company was to point out that in the early days only the bulls like my boss and I fought back when data processing was sweeping the rest of the country’s manufacturing or materials managers into a temporary...

    Tennis and My Life

      My uncle Pancho was the first tennis player in our family. He had loved tennis as a kid and after he was discharged from the Air Force he played a center court match in the quarter finals in the Pacific Coast Championship played at the Los Angeles Tennis Club. He had decided he would decide to keep on playing as a career or not with how he did. Losing in the Quarters made him decide to go to work for a living, but he played tennis most of his entire life. Around age 10 my uncle Pancho started...

    1987 – Korea, The Dinner, You Can’t Make This Up.

    Before I continue with my search for a manufacturing resource I must tell you of one time I went to South Korea.  As I mentioned before I went many times, more than five or six times in two years.  My story is about my first business trip.  What a trip. By the time I made my first trip to Seoul, the Samsung rep had visited me a couple of times.  He could speak enough English to easily communicate and we had established a good relationship.  When I went, he advised me to fly first class because...

    1984 – MDE and Policy

    Editor’s Comment: Back in 1984 I started my second consulting firm in my life. This is a snippet and I will fill in more later. 1984 I opened an office in Torrance CA because I didn’t want to work out of my home as I did with Production Data Systems in the late 60’s. Using an extra bedroom as an office proved to lead towards more distraction than work. I also hired my secretary from the Hughes Tool Company days, Barbara. She had been working as an office manager for the past fifteen or...
