Today is Wednesday, February 1, 2012. I wanted to stop for a moment and thank you for an amazing January. My readers. my clients, and my friends who have all been a part of this journey. This entry will be a bit more personal than usual. I hope you won’t mind reading. It has been a busy and long month of personal triumph and tragedy for my industry. As I did before, I must pause to take time to remember those victims of the sinking of Costa Concordia.
The month started on a hugely positive note when my daughter brought home a report card with all A’s. Laura and I are so proud of her. On the morning of January 13th, 2012, I was in high spirits as quotes by me had been featured in the print edition of USA Today. My business really took off having quotes in a national newspaper. Of course, we all know about the news from that night. I was featured again in USA Today online about my thoughts on cruise sales and prices the following Monday and was also quoted for a local news report here in Atlanta.
My business has continued to grow with cruise sales, and now I have access to an international concierge which has allowed my land vacation business to grow as well. It truly has been a great month and for that I again thank you.
The news I am most proud to share is that at the annual meeting of the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce I was selected as Chamber Volunteer of the Year. I was not able to attend the meeting due to a prior commitment. It is because of my involvement with my chamber that my business has grown as much as it has. I will be receiving the actual award tomorrow. Serving my community either through my Chamber involvement or through the Meals on Wheels program is where I have the most pride. Giving to others has given back so much to me personally and professionally.
I look forward to serving you and your family when you are ready to start planning that cruise or land vacation. Please call me when you are ready to make those dreams a reality. I want to help you get a return on your life!
