Jim Sweeny sold his successful company, Sweeney Sales, in May 2005. So what is he doing now? He has created his Trademarked MIKE cartoon sports character to become the first universal animated brand in sports.
Besides penning 800 blogs, Jim has published 38 MIKE Sports Comic Books. All of the ebooks contain clever sports comics and light hearted commentaries on unique observations about sports.
The 58 year-old Sweeney still participates in sports (slowly!) as a masters athlete and serves as Head of USA for FIMBA - the governing body for masters basketball tournaments around the world.

This is when she learned about ElderHelp of San Diego and she’s been the Outreach Manager for nearly 5 years now. She works in the community to ensure those in need are aware of all of the programs and services that ElderHelp of San Diego has to offer. She also recruis the volunteers who help provide many of these services. They are always looking for volunteers! Read more HERE:
