Great question! Personally, it was due to necessity. I worked in a factory and injured my back, needing surgery. Ended up that I have chronic pain that prevents me from being released to work a 'normal' job. At the same time, our boys were 6 and 8 and my oldest was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome so I needed to be available during school hours for his IEP meetings, and interaction with the teachers, aides, etc to give him the best available services. Incidentally, he graduated college and runs his own business now! Was wonderful to be able to work and be successful and still have the flexibility to care for my family.

Andrew Cooper Well, I figured, that if I'm going to take crap from people, it paid better than being a garbage man.  (Just kidding!)

In 1971, I had already been a successful hit-record musician. But, like many who reach success at a young age, I thought it would never end; but it did.

I floundered for a couple of years after "the music died," and my friend and former drummer recommended that I should try selling real estate, as he did.

So, I figured, "If he can do it, I can do it." Plus, I had nothing to lose.

I never thought I'd have such a long, diverse, and successful career. But, here I am.
