Avatar Mark Michniak graduated from Illinois State University in May of 1996 with a degree in Psychology and a Minor in Sociology. Having grown-up in the suburbs of Chicago, Mark moved back to his home town after graduation where he pursued a career in Sales in the Chicago area. His background includes time in Logistics, Pest Control, and the Water Industry. Although his Sales responsibilities have slightly changed over time, Mark has remained true to the core values of Honesty, Hard-work, and Being a Good Listener to help provide the best products and services to his customers.

In November of 1998, Mark started dating his good friend Lisa Spevacek who is an Eye Doctor in Naperville and they were married in September 2001. Lisa has been at the same practice all of that time and enjoys being able to help people with the health of their eyes. In January of 2005, their first daughter Grace was born and in September of 2010, their second daughter Eva was born. Together, the four make an interesting team as they balance work and family life which includes school, Religious Education, time with family and friends, and the girls favorite activity: CYT (or Christian Youth Theater), to which both are actively involved in classes and performances.

Once a year, as a family, the Michniaks take the time to go on at least one family vacation. Over the years, they have traveled to many places including Disneyland, Disney World, a Caribbean cruise, San Diego, CA, and Galveston, TX, to name a few. They believe that the world is a big place with lots of history and cultures to learn. In the future, they hope to travel internationally to enjoy all that this world has to offer.

On Thursday, I had to run a couple of errands. One of them was to stop-by an OfficeMax facility to get a new mouse for my laptop and a plug for my cell phone. The OfficeMax was located on the outer-circle of a giant shopping mall near our house. After purchasing my...

Practicing Patience When I Want Everything Yesterday

Patience is a virtue. That is something we have all heard many times growing-up. As a kid, living in the type of family I had, being the youngest of four, I had to learn to be patient. What's funny though is that as I have gotten older, my patience has gotten worse,...
