About John

John & Anne Wedding Day
Wedding Day

My name is John Noce and I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Asheville, NC.  I’m married to the most amazing woman in the world and our kids are just incredible!  We are a blended family, which is fun.  I brought 3 kids (2 girls & a boy) to the marriage and my wife had two daughters.

In my day job, I work for Buncombe County Election Services.  I am NC State certified in Elections and I’m currently working on my National CERA certification.  I love my job, but I’m always looking to make things even better with a few side hustles.

For years I was a stay at home dad to my 3 kids and that was such an incredible experience.  Getting to watch them grow up and become the intelligent, beautiful kids that they are was such a privilege.  My wife and I have been friends since our daughters were in Kindergarten so I got to see her girls grow up as well.

Over the years, I’ve invested in real estate, built websites for small businesses, sold eBooks on eBay and even tried my hand at some work from home internet businesses.  I’ve been a teacher, a college recruiter, and even a car salesman.

I used to be a competitive runner and enjoy coaching others to their first 5K or setting a PR.  I’ve competed in every distance from the 100m to the half-marathon.  My desk job and crazy work schedule has added “some” weight so currently I’m running much less and focusing on weight training.  I hope to get back into running soon as I miss it very much.

I hope you enjoy my website and blog page where I’ll discuss all of the above and the lessons I’ve learned over the years.
