Hey GUYS!!!

Well after ten years with General Dynamics at MacDill supporting both CENTCOM and SOCOM, I decided it was time to try the commercial sector and get away from military contracting.

Sequestration as well as one year contracts, DoD contracts are NOT what they once were...

SO, I decided to take a leap of faith and join a small fiber optic company in Venice, FL.

I will post more tomorrow; however, if you have need of fiber optic cabling, please let me quote you our pricing... we can beat ANYONE!!!

Cheers!

Thanks Johnny, its a little scary to be dependent upon partnerships and/or sales, but no less scary than depending on a DoD contract I suppose.

More information tomorrow morning... G'Night...

So I said I would post about my new position with DMSI.

Diversified Material Specialists Incorporated is a US based, international company specializing in fiber optic connectivity design and manufacturing. DMSI manufactures a broad range of fiber products for indoor and data center applications.

We specialize in the manufacture of standard and custom fiber optic connectivity products for inside plant and data center applications, with emphasis on lowering customer costs and offering alternative solutions for IT and cabling.

What this means is that if you need fiber or fiber connectivity accessories I can beat almost any price out there in the marketplace today. Especially if you must use Corning fiber.

So hit me up if you have any fiber needs;

Cheers,

Mike A!

Congrats Mike! Always exciting and a bit nerve racking to move away from the known to the unknown of a new job but hopefully the excitement overcomes the unknown! Make sure you still make time to hit the water!

What's your role at the new place?

Hey Sazar,

Well the new office is nice (my recliner :laugh:) and I get to have whatever days I want off as long as I keep hitting the grind stone when I get back...

SO far so good, but I must admit I am still nervous, haven't made a significant sale, and the way to make a great living at this job is selling my fiber optic cabling and accessories to I.T. folks...

So... anyone here need fiber cabling on the cheap???

Cheers!

Mike A!
