This week I am speaking with David Jenkins. David is one of the founding members of the Career Pivot membership community who has gone from running a realtors association to being a Small Business Development Center consultant before retiring more than a year ago.

David has a long history in city and state government in the area of planning and zoning. David started a blog last year called PLACESENSE – Information and discussion about the importance of placemaking and planning for our communities.

David recently ran for a city council position in his hometown of La Platta Maryland. I wanted you to hear his story of running a successful political campaign at the age of 72. David has grown so much in the last couple of years that it proves you can teach old dogs new tricks.

This week will be a different kind of episode. My wife and I arrived back in Austin a little less than a week ago. We have a lot of things to do while we are here to get properly vaccinated. You should read my blog post from last week where I compared the COVID-19 response in Mexico and the US.

We will be in Austin for a month to get both vaccination shots of the Pfizer vaccine. This is the longest we have been in the US in 2 and half years. I claim you learn more about your own culture when you go someplace else.

That is so true returning to my home town of 40 + years and finding it is not the same place anymore. Some of this is due to the pandemic and changes in people’s behaviors. Some of this is due to a huge influx of people moving to the city. Some of this is I can view the city from a different perspective. I am not the same person who left Austin in June of 2018 and can look at it in a different light.
