Making Money Out of Thin Air

Since the beginning of my flying career at age 23, I’ve flown over 30,000 hours and over 30 kinds of aircraft, mostly jets. I suppose my experiences, both good and not-so-hot, have exceeded those most people have throughout their lives. At first glance, they may seem incredible, even unbelievable, these opportunities I’ve been granted. As you’ll note, more than a few of them could have cost me my life. I have also been pretty successful in the business world. I have more start-up knowledge than just about anyone. Most of my “luck” came by way of hard work and perseverance. I have included in this book, some of my more noteworthy take-aways from my experiences in the world of International Business. I’m hopeful that this will help you on your journey because it isn’t about the goal, it is about the journey!

Should Have: Poetry & Images

Mary Bartz-Sykes started writing poetry in high school, then studied contemporary poetry in college. The poems of Ezra Pound and William Butler Yeats especially appealed to her -- back when “contemporary” meant the early 20th century. Throughout her life She has written poems here and there as the spirit led her.
Finally, in 2020, she collected all these papers, took a look at all the photos she had taken over the years, and combined them. The literary and visual aspects of this book will make for an inspiring, multi-dimensional, thought-provoking read!
