It’s been nearly 30 years ago since I sold my first magazine article thus launching a successful career in outdoors communication and marketing. Through the years I’ve worked in radio, print media and as a commercial voice-over actor. This year my business, Outside Connections, LLC, celebrates 25 successful years as a thriving small publishing company producing mostly outdoors-oriented calendars for clients throughout North America. I hold dual degrees in Scientific & Technical Communications as well as in Paralegal studies. All statements, comments made by Jim Braaten and material produced by this blog is a product of my business, Outside Connections, LLC and should be treated as such.
