Several features have been conducted in the past where my name and the names of my children have been incorrectly spelt. In addition, there has been confusion as to who Kristian is with in the above photo. He is pictured with his little sister Lauren, NOT his daughter Kayla as some papers have printed. This picture was taken at Christmas 2000 when Kristian was 18 and Lauren was just one-year-old.
Mistakes like this may seem insignificant to others, but to a family who is providing a story with which to help fill the paper, attention to detail is crucial.
Surname: ANDERSEN (Yes, this is the correct spelling - the Norwegian way)

"Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility... in the final analysis, the one quality that all successful people have... is the ability to take on responsibility."
