Marty Bryson, Secretary of HR Florida, Inc. recently asked me how we ended up with The Dan Marino Foundation, Inc. (DMF) as our Charity of Choice for the 2018 Conference, and to write about it. So, it was Saturday morning, the magazine deadline was looming, and I wanted a little quiet time to reflect and focus on my task at hand. That was most definitely NOT going to happen at my house on a weekend with a hungry teenager (when ISN’T he hungry?), an elderly dog who snores, and a cat who feels entitled to sit on my keyboard. So, I went to one of the local fast food franchises to sit and have some coffee and a biscuit, and take advantage of their free wi-fi to compose my thoughts. Pen to paper as it were.
