Hello there and welcome to my personal blog.
Since the title of this page is “About James McDairmant” I guess I should tell you a bit about myself.
First and foremost I am a child of God, saved from damnation by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, not by my power, but by the wonderful Grace of God.
Secondly, I am a husband and father of two wonderful children. I have been married to the most beautiful woman in the world since 1996, and I have the two best, brightest, and cutest children in the world, I’m sorry to tell you this, because I know it will make you jealous, but it’s true.
Thirdly, I am the owner, operator and president of Lake City Awnings & Signs, Inc. located in Syracuse, Indiana. Founded in the early 1980s Lake City Awnings & Signs, Inc. started as “Island Awning Shop” and changed hands a few times before I bought the business and incorporated in 1997. www.signs-awnings.com
Fourthly, I am a 10th degree black belt in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. I started my training in Budo in 1990 and started teaching the art in 1994. I travel to Japan on a fairly regular basis to further my training. I own an operate the Bujinkan Kosciusko Dojo (Training Hall) located in Warsaw, Indiana. www.bkdojo.com
My original intentions for this blog was to be a place to post articles about “ordinary” people who achieved success in their lives, lets say a place for inspiration for people who are really working hard towards their version of success and need a place to see others succeeding. But these types of stories have become much easier to find around the internet in the last few years (see Entrepreneur.com).
Really this blog has become a place for me to write down my insights, feelings, and opinions on subjects that I know a little about, like Martial Arts, Business, and Faith. In the hopes that someone might find encouragement or understanding in the thoughts that run through my brain.
