The one thing I am passionate about...
Really the most important thing to me is my family.I always make time for my 3 kids, no matter what. I have worked hard in life to build a business that I really enjoy and that allows me to enjoy life. Things haven't always been rosy along the way. But there isn't anything I would have changed to get here. So that isn't all bad. Most people are surprised to hear that I love NASCAR. Dale Jr. and Smoke are my favorites. I have season tickets in the grandstand at MIS. Not sure what the typical fan looks like, but I fit in with the crowd.
I typically spend my leisure time
Currently spending most of my time with my kids. When I am not at work I spend time around my house. It is out in farm country and is a remodeled 100 year old farm house on some acreage. I have a fire pit and I love to cook on the grill. If I go out on the town it would be to a restaurant. It depends on my mood, where I would eat. It could be a hole in the wall restaurant or driving to Chicago or Grand Rapids to Charlie's Crab.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a life partner. I learned in life that you can accomplish a lot by yourself, but it is fun to experience life with a special person. I want my partner to have her own dreams and I want to enjoy watching her reach for them. I would like to find a person that is outgoing and looks at life in a positive sense, instead of dwelling on the negative. Positive things come from positive thinking. I would also like to find a person that understands how to struggle through tough times and come out on top, together.
The first thing people notice about me
Besides for my chubby cheeks, which I have had my whole life. I am an average built guy. I am a very good listener. I have a great ability to read people and understand what they are going through. I have my own opinions, but I don't let that stop me from listen to the other side. My business also requires my to help people through the most difficult times in life.
The last book I read and enjoyed
If I am honest, I don't read many books. I read newspapers online, usually local. In the last year I have read 3 books. 1. The Bible 2. Permission Marketing. 3. Lessons from the Light. I could read this book or this type anyday. Interesting stuff.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Children
- My Faith
- My Life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
How important it is to talk to someone before passing judgment. We can learn a lot from one another. I am just an average guy living a great life. Things haven't always been rosy, but I wouldn't change a thing.One thing that I am not afraid of is myself. I have no problem going to lunch or dinner by myself. Don't get me wrong it is more fun to be with someone. But I know people that will not do those things by themselves.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Good listener, Hard Working, Loyal
A little more about me
I really like the outdoors. I have a small farm that sits between Kalamazoo and Battle I have two dogs: Black Lab (puppy) named Jack and Yellow Lab (3 years old) named Jill. The country is so nice on a summer day. ALthough cutting the lawn isn't always fun. I can't wait for my kids to be old enough for that. I grew up on Clark Lake . So I really look forward to time on the lake in the summer.Well that all I have time for, but if you have questions let me know.
