Where Have I Been?

What can I say? It's been busy lately. In addition to my full time job at a radio station I do a lot of volunteer work. I'm the President of my local Kiwanis club this year.  I've recently started attending neighborhood community meetings. The big project each year is to collect food and toys for those less fortunate. Each year a truck holding a sleigh which in turn holds Santa and Mrs. Claus make the rounds through the neighborhood collecting these items.   It's a two day event that's been going on for 15 years and takes a lot of planning. There's a group of my neighbors that do an outstanding job of it. I am there for moral support for the most part.

Our Kiwanis club is always involved in something... Shoes for kids, serving meals at the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House, helping kids bring grades up, a program to fund a scholarship for pediatric trauma doctors and more. This year we're putting on a car show on April 10th.  Click here to learn more about the Cruisin' for Kids car show.  I've loved giving back to the community for years.  It's hard to put into words the rewards you get from it. After a long day working it's what recharges me.

Of course there's always giving the best service I can to my Please Hold Marketing clients. At the same time pursuing new clients. I belong to a networking group that meets each Wednesday morning at the IHOP in Rancho Cucamonga. It's called Top Source. It's exclusive to one of each business. It's a great bunch of people. Last year we shared over 2 million dollars in business between us.

Well, that gives you a little idea. The blog seems to be the first thing that suffers when I get busy. Hopefully it won't be so long next time.

Until next time... take care.
