It has been a little while since I’ve had a chance to post here.  There have been some changes including that I have made the decision to move on from my present employer and back to full time consulting with the firm I founded in 2001, SUCCESS by DESIGN.  I was planning a few weeks off, but my almost previous employer (officially March 31 now) has hired me on as a consultant in the position of Chief Business Development Officer.  In effect, I’ve been working three jobs (day job, consulting job and managing gym partner) this past month in addition to the autism bench meet fundraiser (next report), the APF/AAPF Illinois State Championships this past weekend, and lifting in the Relentless meet this upcoming week.

Yeah, a great way to prep for a meet.

Over the past 45 days, I’ve also completed my APF referee’s exam and this past weekend I completed my practical exam during the APF/AAPF Illinois State Championships.  Now, in addition to a few other responsibilities I will have the honor of taking a direct role on the other side of the platform.

Over the next few weeks I will be discussing the Illinois State Meet, the Autism Meet and Relentless – from operations, refereeing and competing.
