SOBER APPLE // sobriety is about change
Hello! My name is Bob (Robert) Apple, I currently live in Santa Maria California, but lived in the Silicon Valley for forty years. I was married twice, had two great kids, a boy and a girl.
I have done many things in life including working for UPS. I have also owned several businesses, video store, video production, a bar (not as much fun as you think), and I was partner that owned four Quizno’s franchises. Yeah, that didn’t go so well! I worked for a short time as a Private Investigator. I disliked training to be a Private Investigator (it’s not like the movies), so I quit and went to work for UPS.
Some of my hobbies over the years have been restoring old Volkswagens, managing local bands, and video production. Recently, I have been weightlifting, and I wish I had started this earlier. I feel fantastic and have so much more energy. I love new challenges. I am always looking for the next thing I am not good at. Lol! No seriously my philosophy in life is you won’t know if you don’t try.
If I was to describe myself I would say a few simple things. I like to think positive almost to a fault. I love helping other people and I am a good listener. I get satisfaction in helping others reach their goals in life. If you stay in my orbit long enough, I will probably tell you what I think you would be good at. I love taking risks in life, to me that’s the point of being alive. I hate failure, but learn to accept it. I tend to see the best in others, not the worst. Lastly, I am day dreamer, I day dream all day. I like to say I go to bed at night and fall dead, then wake up and see what new adventure lies ahead…
