A Fan Asked Mike Rowe For Life Advice… His Response is Perfect.

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

    One has to learn how to work your rear end off, no matter the job. I have made sand whiches, worked as a bouncer and worked security at a hospital doing part time jobs while making a career in the Marine Corps. If you can’t have an annual vacation in Hawaii, then it was never meant to be. You go where the money is to make a living. Suck it up.

    A smack to the back of the head is a good thing, sometimes. 🙂

      Absolutely! Hope you’re doing well, Tim, and that you’re finally getting enough sun up there to warm your bones after the ridiculous winter.
