Today I Make a Come Back…….

Hello My Friends,

You know that small voice in your head that says ” Oh, don’t worry, you can do it tomorrow,” then tomorrow comes and that same voice pops in and says “What’s one more day going to hurt?” then the next thing you know it’s a week, month, year later!

Today I am taking that voice by the neck, taking all of my 245 lbs and stomping on it, then signing it up for the next polar plunge, tying an anchor to it, and tossing it into the frigid waters of Wisconsin! (excuse my language ladies and gentleman).

Procrastination, take it completely out of your vocabulary, because as of today I no longer understand that word, I am making my come back to blogging and conquering some goals that I have had set for a long time!

I am not going to start my come back to blogging with a blog about the print industry, although I will get back to that as alot has changed, but today I will be talking about a bigger cause that will change lives.

My wife, Ashley Knoble (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/ashley-knoble/35/580/1a3) has taken on a massive undertaking by running for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year. I won’t get into too much of the specifics of it, but basically our babysitter (pictures below on the right with my wife), while a junior in high school fought and beat Hodgkins Lymphoma. With this inspiration, and the support of Christine Schmieden (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/christine-schmieden/5/7a5/598), Bob Wydra (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/robert-wydra/30/a4a/307) and myself (along with many others that have offered to help) will be fundraising from March until June 1st.

You can find more information about the campaign by going here, and while there please make sure to like the page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Campaigning-for-a-Cure-Team-Ashley/297181033652537

There are some really great prizes to be won such as Diamond Earrings from Diamond Nexus Labs, Channing Tatum autographed pictures, and an electric guitar donated by Echo Park Guitars just to mention a few of the things…..

If you would like to be part of the campaign, want to find out more about how you can contribute or be involved please do not hesitate to get in contact with me!

In the mean time, so you all can hold me accountable that procrastination is completely out of my vocabulary (and please call me on it if I don’t reach one of my goals) here are my goals:

1. Blog at least once a week.

2. Post a status update on LinkedIn three times a week

3. Help my wife win Woman of the Year and fundraise like crazy

4. Become more politically involved

5. Be the best father and husband I can be!
