    Paul Carpenter age 55 Cloquet ,Mn

    I first came into the automotive sales in 2004 at Cloquet Ford, Chrysler worked there til 2006 until recruited by Krenzen. I worked at Krenzen while working there my wife and I began building a greenhouse business that eventually took all my time away from cars and I pulled out of automobiles until re entering in Oct of 2009 once again at Cloquet Ford Chrysler until the awesome opportunity to work for Duluth Chrysler , Dodge, Jeep & Ram came to me in April of 2015.

    Prior to selling Cars my employment history looked like this After completing college at St. Cloud State University I purchased the then Carlton Municipal Liquor store and began a 23 year run as owner and operator of the Third Base Bar in Carlton. In 1999 the next business acquisition was Tall Pines Liquor Store also in Carlton Mn.

    Fast forward to 2007 that when my Wife Sarah and I opened our Greenhouse & Florist called Mother Nature and Co. In 2008 when the economy turned I supplemented the income in various ways thru Primerica finacial services Insurance, banking and investment products, I also worked selling advertisements for a coupon publication company called " The Best of Duluth" where I took off and formed yet another " Best of Cloquet " addition.

    My interest include but not limited to Biblical readings, Recovery readings and self improvement books, any thing not fiction that might give me an opportunity to grow, stretch, learn and improve, " When you stop learning you stop earning " I got off the " Electronic income reducer " ( TV) for 4 years some time back and am proud to say I am again TV free. " Readers are leaders "

    I love instant gratification as much as the next guy, thus I love to Mow grass and work in the yard, I'm given extra opportunities for such enjoyment by extending volunteer time to my home congregation at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Carlton , taking care of my Mothers place, the old homestead and even the Alano Society of Cloquet / Carlton County. Its truly a 4 season passion.

    Golf has now been replaced by now with recumbent biking, Grand children of which I currently have 5 under the age of 4. Between my wife Sarah and I we have Six children between the ages of 37 & 23 2 boys, 4 girls. our only pets are our fresh water aquarium fish.

    My involvement in the community is really what holds me together, I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve on the Church Council of Bethesda Lutheran for7 years and while doing that given the opportunity to represent out church multiple times at the Northeast Synod Assembly the annual Church gathering, I also have been given the opportunity to teach 6-9 th grade Sunday school for quite some years. I was recently Elected vice Pres. of the Carlton county Alano Socitety for the betterment of the surrounding Cloquet Area. A winter time passion of mine is Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army during the Christmas Holidays, outdoors only , thus I bundle up and keep warm with a smile.

    Past accomplishments include induction into the State of Mn and the National Beverage association as retailer of the year. Carlton Chamber of Commerce business of the year and most recently and probably my most prestigious  recognition or award my wife Sarah and I recieved a Lavovitz Entrepreneural achievment award.

    about cars, I drive a 1977 Triumph Spitfire convertible stick in the summer, but my favorite vehicle I sell and represent and someday with to own and drive is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited , Black , 6 speed manual and the whole while keeping the top off.
