If I die today-I'll die happy. It's been a roller coaster, but a great ride.
Although I’m from the Toronto, Canada area, I've lived in Seoul & Wonju, Korea, basically since 1995. Developments in East Asia (good & bad) continue to amaze me!! Before Seoul came EL Salvador, Albuquerque, Alabama, Toronto, Montreal & the North Pole!!
I’ve slowed down from busy business days and now focus on family, teaching, research, & consulting management, entrepreneurship, & real estate. I'm married and settling down with an amazing woman and four kids!!
My hands are full keeping the youngest son (born Oct 2009) from ‘rock’ climbing, falling on his head, & being attacked by his girlfriends & his modelling career! Thank God my older kids are amazing & wise beyond their years!
We're planning a North American tour in Feb & June. I’ll be promoting globalization & education – I’m helping give away scholarships for cash & undergrad university degrees!!
Let me know where exactly you are & your plans, so we may catch up in Feb & June!

Last note... Entrepreneurs & businesses want “FREE” help, email - - - SeanWatts@ Hotmail .com - - - Professors, students, & government officers can help! I have various business & entrepreneurship programs! Register for the next program now for March to June 2012. Entrepreneurs & businesses will communicate with classes to promote & explain the businesses. Businesses do not have to be in Seoul or even Korea - we can use technology for mutual benefit & development. Students may either develop your business, or manage term papers & exams for the final grade. I must discuss details with interested people before the class starts in March so please contact me soon and follow up. - - - seanwatts@ hotmail .com - - - Students should spend time together with the entrepreneur / business developing projects, such as any of the following or others you suggest: your business plan, marketing materials, financial plans, HR plans, management development plans, competitor analysis, searching for suppliers, clients, translating material, etc. Students may continue to work with your business if all goes well. Please tell all entrepreneurs & businesses this info-globally. Good luck & Happy Holidays!
