Happy Thanksgiving

Here in The United States we have a wonderful holiday today. It is called Thanksgiving. American's take a day off, cook a turkey with stuffing and sweet potatoes, and eventually when everything is done cooking, we sit and feast. Pumpkin pie is also a part of this ritual along with Cool Whip or whipped creme depending on your taste.

The entire feast centers around a simply idea; give gratitude for all the year has brought into our lives. After this giant feast is consumed, we start cleaning up, and sit around to watch copious amounts of American Football (not FĂștbol) while falling into a tryptophan induced nap. Or some of us will watch a marathon of the classic TV show The Twilight Zone. Check your local listings.

So, in traditional Thanksgiving Day fashion, I would like to say THANK YOU for so many things:

This year has been a milestone year for my speaking career. Twelve thousand miles in 9 weeks. I was the keynote speaker for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, The Ultimate Mastermind Summit 2014, ProAssurance, The AESC, Liquidnet, The Dream Business Academy and Medmarc Insurance Group. Lots of flights, and some fun along the way. Since I am a big geek, I love the research for my clients even more than I am excited about the actual speech.

As this year comes to a close, I am pushing forward. Big projects on the horizon and I look forward to sharing every milestone with you in 2015.

A very special thank you to my lovely wife Norma. She is everything from management to support, R&D and of course, my best friend.

And as always, a special thank you to everyone who reads my blog. THANK YOU for your support my friends,
