Left right after the convention and took a fun trip. Since I’ve been “unplugged” from the internet for the last two weeks, this is the first chance I’ve had to render my sincere thanks to JP, TV, Jeanne and family for a truly awesome experiance.
The roundtable discussions, as expected, were terrific. I had the opportunity to listen and chat with Bill Bronchick, Ed Garcia, Richard Roop, Randy and Charlie France, and Michael Morrongiello. All deal in straight-on, bare-knuckles facts about what works and they never sugar-coat. I only wished I could have cloned myself to make it to the rest of the tables.
Enjoyed hanging out with Phil (way to go, Fernandez!), Al, and the rest of the Vermont crowd. Made sure to make time with Big Jim (way to go, Raynor), HR, TRandle, DaveAlex, and countless others. Ran into Terry Lape in the elevator. Sorely missed Jim Piper, Johnboy, Jim Kennedy and Tim Jensen.
Terry Vaughan always says our goal is to become better business people. We do that by both internet and in-person sharing of experiance. We possess a remarkable family of deep thinkers and doers who collectively comprise a profound fountain of wisdom. I know, because I drank from it heavily. I took away a lot more than I expected to.
It was great to see real faces again. When you hang out with winners, it can’t help but rub off.
