Me

Jerome-300x245[1]H. Jerome Chapman

Yep! That’s me. Sitting on a rock somewhere between Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah. And, no, I am not there at this moment but I can close my eyes and be anywhere I want in an instant. You probably have done that yourself.

We sometimes see people we think are asleep on a plane, bus, subway, park bench or the Starbucks and what they are really doing is time travel. It is a wonderful human ability used by millions who are often accused of “daydreaming”.  Your spouse may do it when you’re talking.

Retired, now, I have a lot of time on my hands. I do a lot of time traveling.

For most of my work life, I was involved in storytelling. As a salesman, trainer, coach and sales manager we were always working to get customers to sell our products versus someone else. To do that, we need a good product and a good story to help sell it. Sometimes a good story beats a good product!

My mentor always said, “Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story.” We can do that with a good conscious by calling some of them “fiction”.

I always thought of myself as a “storyteller” and now I am trying to write down some of the stories that I remember about people, places and events. That is a real work in progress. Some of those will appear here under “Sandy Point Tales”. I hope some may resonate with you.

I have always officially lived in Georgia although I was away in school in Los Angeles for a time and have spent many weeks in other places. We lived a short time in Pennsylvania and Louisiana when my Dad was in the Army but I was too young to remember those days.

I have worked with leaders of multinational corporations and independent business men and women. Some of these people have truly amazing stories of their own.

If you have a story you would like to share, send it to us. If there is an interesting person or event that shaped your life, let us know that as well.

You may submit your “Tale” to: Admin@Sandypointtimes.com.

We look forward to hearing from you.
