About the author
Larry Shirer – Bio I earned a BBA from Ohio University and an MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration. I have held responsible positions in several companies, including serving as Vice President and General Manager of a $25,000,000 division of a New York Stock Exchange listed company. My career includes two stints with Management Consulting firms, during which I helped owners of small and medium sized businesses enhance the performance of their enterprises, by improving their decision making skills. I am deeply committed to learning and have been consistently involved in personal development through reading and classes in philosophy, morality and spirituality. I have also taught part-time at the university level. Since semi-retiring, I have worked as a commercial real estate broker and have had two previous books printed for family and friends and another published. I have been actively involved in community service activities, including serving as Chairman of the United Way Board of Directors, Chairman of the Board of Directors of a local Soup Kitchen, Treasurer of a Mental Health Board and mentoring junior high youth. As a result of making presentations to discussion groups at two different churches, I was invited to give two lectures about Native American spirituality at the College of Wooster Lay Academy of Religion, a multi-week program that has been presented annually for over 50 years. I have a website at www.larryspointstoponder.com, with 2 blogs, one about Native American Values and Virtues, and the other focused on the "Points to Ponder" theme.
