"Don't get trapped into chasing and maintaining a lifestyle. The lifestyle thing, the money thing, the white-house-with-a-picket-fence thing. All materialistic games that people play are such a rat race that you'll lose your dream in no time flat... Lifestyle is a killer. Lifestyle will masquerade as your dream realized. Soon, the lifestyle will seem more important than the dream. Appearances, comforts and keeping up with the Joneses is not the road to a fulfilling future." -Milton Katselas

Sound words, in my opinion. -J.O.

Jim Olson is a ranch-raised cowboy, author and entrepreneur. Growing up on the high plains of eastern New Mexico he learned to ride young colts, tend to cattle and drive heavy farm equipment at an early age. 

Jim spent a few years competing in the calf roping event at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association level, qualifying for the circuit finals a few times. He lives on and operates a ranch near Stanfield, Arizona, once a part of John Wayne’s Red River Ranch, and also owns Western Trading Post, dealing in Cowboy and Indian collectibles. 

These great life experiences Jim now uses in his writing career. He writes stories about interesting and extraordinary people of the west including short stories of both fiction and nonfiction. He has a monthly column titled “Cowboy Heroes,” published by several Southwestern and national magazines. Jim has written three books and is working on other projects as well.
