It’s been four month since I posted to LinkedIn or my web site. With this economy I have to work twice as hard for half the money. Also been occupied with charity events – BBQ at Bitter Root Ranch for Opportunity Village and the Boys & Girls Club 50th Birthday Party. Upcoming are the Safe Nest Luncheon, Noah’s Animal House Unleashed and the Olive Crest Ladies of Distinction Luncheon. Check out recent event pictures here:

Was planning to host an LA Sit Down next week, but that went sideways. What is the deal with people that don’t honor their commitments? My business partner tells me to be there at a certain date in time, he knows I’m flying, then cancels the meeting. We can get more of everything in life but TIME. Cancelling appointments at the last minute is not only disrespectful, it says "you are not important to me" and portrays you as someone that does not keep your commitments. Long-term, not a good business strategy.

The last event of the year will be The Godfather’s Christmas Extravaganza, my private Christmas party in the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa on the roof of the Palms. Entertainment will be holiday songs from several of my favorite Las Vegas performers!
