It’s not summer yet, but it sure feels like it. The weather has finally turned to warmth and the craziness that is summer is upon us.
Last month, I traveled twice. Once to Jacksonville, Florida for a marketing conference. While there I got a chance to meet Rick Harrison (from History’s Pawn Stars show). I also found out a festival was taking place within walking distance of my downtown hotel, so I was able to catch two bands I wanted to see, Collective Soul and Three Doors Down. Yes, I am a 90’s/00’s pop/rock fan.
A few days after returning from that trip, it was off to Phoenix, Arizona for a sales conference along with our COO Johnathan. No concerts this time, just a small group of amazing entrepreneurs furthering their sales skills. There were about 30 of us. On day three of the conference, we actually got on the phone and as a group we booked 1.3 million dollars’ worth of business. Not too shabby for a few dozen people and 6 hours of work.
Phoenix was supposed to mark the end of my travel for a while, but another speaking gig just got booked for Las Vegas again in July. Until then, I am looking forward to some much needed family time. My brother will be in the QC for Memorial Day weekend and get to spend some time with us. I also, just bought a new bicycle so hope to get to spend some time on that (although I much prefer my motorcycle which also needs the cobwebs dusted off.)
Should be some great stories next month after the official start of Summer.
Until next month,
