Prior to entering the speaking and writing fields, Charley's journey has been diverse indeed;  from the farm to military service, to college administration, and eventually into the real estate industry as a builder, developer and realtor.  He has an extensive background in education and management with a Bachelor's Degree in business with a Masters in Education and Counseling.  His career as a professional speaker and author began later in life and what he shares is a direct reflection of his experiences.  Charley's stories range from the inspirational and humorous to the motivational with some personal commentary added to the mix.

When Charley's not in an educator's role, he shifts gears and puts on his Will Rogers hat.  He's a lot like Will in his approach to story telling and strives to take a common sense approach with a dash of humor tossed in, when talking or writing about his experiences.

Folks, Charley's just a cowboy at heart with the spirit of the Westerner in his sole who hails from the eastern farm hills of Kansas.  He thought these books would be a pretty good way to bring some of his favorite Will Rogers Thoughts, Quotes & Anecdotes to today's public and toss in a story or two of his own.

Now keep in mind, some of the commentary may have a hint of preachiness about it, however, he prefers to call it philosophizing.


Make a heartfelt commitment of time and energy to assist your student in acquiring a college education debt-free.  A personal commitment expressing your willingness to put forth the effort to make the goal a reality is a powerful modeling example.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back.  Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.  Begin it now.” Goethe
