More About Us…

Hi, I’m Tina, the wife, the mom, the business owner, and glue that hold everything together. I started blogging back in 2016 on my other blog, Rock Painting Guide, and now I wanted to put something else on my plate…LOL.

I’ve been a soloprenuer for the past 15 years as a housecleaning and property management business owner, blogger, and even podcast editor. Having the freedom to be the boss of my business provided me with the opportunities to be there for my family and work as much or as little as I want.

You can find me enjoying family time camping or soaking in the sun at the beach on the weekends or sipping on a glass of good pinot grigio at the campfire with my hubby.

Hey everyone, I’m Jeff, the husband, the dad, and the guy who lives for the next adventure. Whether it’s a camping trip, diving, rappelling down a mountain or zip lining with my son, I am always ready for an adventure. I guess you can say that I enjoy a good adrenaline rush. 

Besides being an outdoorsman, I’ve been in the sales and business management for the past 20 years in sunny Florida. I graduated with a B. S. in Business Management from Florida State University and an M.B. A. at the University of Phoenix.

My role on Grit and Graceful blog is to contribute practical and useful articles on camping and getting outdoors, along with offering business management solutions and tips.
