Why Bad Things Happen to Good People

Let’s face it. It happens. Maybe you know someone. Maybe it’s you. Whoever it is, you are going along in life, you are doing all the right things, you mean well, you follow the rules, and bam! You are knocked on the head with something bad. Something that takes you out at the knees. You are left asking the question, “why […]

Olympic Style Results For Your Travel Business

Seeing people at their fullest potential fascinates me. That’s why I love the Olympics. But what’s the difference between the alpine skier who wins the gold and the skier who doesn’t even make it to the Olympics? Or the bobsledder who didn’t qualify 4 years earlier, but then comes back to win a gold medal and break […]
