Salt Lake on a bus.
Our tour ended just as the bus showed up with the other 52 people, so we thought we would hang out a bit and catch a ride back to the hotel with them... However sometime within that waiting period I had the bright idea to give Mike's brother-in-law, Keith Caraway, a call. I knew the building he worked in was within sight of Send Out Cards, but wasn't sure which one it was. So when I called him, he was delighted and popped over to say hi. He got there just as the bus was leaving so we abandoned the ride back to town idea and went to lunch with him. He then put us on a city bus that took us back to town and actually dropped us right at the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake where we had decided to go see the IMAX movie. Perfect! Then the free trolley in Salt Lake took us back to the hotel just in time for the evening's Send Out Cards event so we could get all motivated in our busines again.
I must admit I've been to 4 treat-em-rights now, and you would think I know what they want me to know, but these are self improvement seminars, and it amazes me every time what more I learn about myself! Can't wait for the next one.
The next event I was excited to participate in was the first Saturday in June in Chicago.. My last day in Chicago. I was excited to still be there and be able to attend their local "Super Saturday" (another training event popping up around the country). We have Super Saturdays in Colorado about once a month (unless something else is going on, like bus trips to Salt Lake) and I find them every inspirational. The one in Chicago was much smaller and very intimate, which was great. And it just so happened that the speaker/trainer for the day was none other than Jordan Adler, the number one month earner in Send Out Cards. He recently bought a 4th home in Chicago, and so likes to hang out there! Anyway, what a great opportunity to get to take part in.
