Over the years, he has personally developed five successful subdivisions including one of 900 acres in western North Carolina. In recent years, while working in the jungles of Guyana, South America on a 34,000 acre project, John saw the United States from a different vantage point and as a result, he became concerned about its leadership, the direction of its economy and the instability of the dollar. Being good friends with others involved in a large NGO specializing in disaster relief, John became knowledgeable in the matter of disaster readiness and preparedness.
