Fighting For A Worthy Cause

Posted on September 15, 2008 at 5:30pm 1 Comment

I rarely (if ever) talk about my wife Jen (to the left here) in this blog. This isn't an intended slight but just the fact that the subject matter here rarely crosses into that territory. If you ask her, I think she prefers it that way too. So if this post is a slight deviation to what you normally read here, I hope you'll understand that the reason it is making it on here is because it is more important than anything else I have to share with you.

Sorry I didn't add you first! I've gotten distracted from important things by Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and now this... I'm amazed I can still do my normal job! Oh wait... I should be doing that now... :)

Hi Lance,

I made a donation in honor of my dear friend, Kim Rudi, who passed away a few months ago from Breast Cancer. Jen is a beautiful woman (which is obvious on the outside and apparently on the inside as well based on your testament). I wish you two many more years of happiness and health together!

Best,
Suzanne

Hi Lance -

Nice job combining the power of HR Bloggers with HRM Today. I'll be curious to watch how you guys cross-pollinate with one another. I'm sure others here will be anxious to determine how to monetize their blogs either as individuals or via the collective.

Best,
Mark
