Being an ex-poker dealer I have seen the good, bad and ugly associated with the game. The ugly comes from those who play that have their own agenda for inflicting misery on others. I was entangled in this life since 1981 and the only good thing to come out of it was my love of poker.
It was because of those uglies that I “retired” from pitching tickets and tried to find something to do that didn’t involve ugly people. Of course that didn’t work out because I did a stint as an apartment manager while running an internet business. There is nothing pretty about managing apartments and living right in the middle of the uglies!
Since 2006 I have been writing for PokerWorks and it has been the most wonderful job I have ever had. I love my work, I love working at home and love my boss. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Working at home also enabled me to be with my husband 24/7 and be his caregiver as he battled cancer. For that alone I am eternally grateful. Now that my beloved has been released from cancer, working helps keep me going, keeps me centered and gives me purpose.
