What are you most looking forward to in the next six months?
Like yesterday, I can answer this one pretty easily: early October! In the span of two weeks...
- We finish The Dwyer Group Annual Reunion at work, a three-day convention that hosts as many of the corporate personnel, our franchisees and vendors as we can get under one roof (this year at the gorgeous Gaylor Texan Resort in Dallas). It's going to be hectic leading up to the event, but it's incredibly rewarding once it gets started.
- After that, my sister is getting married! She and Jess will be tying the knot at the Earle-Harrison House and Pape Gardens here in Waco, then flying off to Seattle for their Alaskan honeymoon cruise. Jess is a welcome addition to the family - incredibly nice guy!
- Once the wedding is done, I'm then hopping a redeye to Las Vegas for the Direct Marketing Association Conference. I've thoroughly enjoyed the DMA Conference the last two years (once in San Francisco, once in Boston); I always come back energized with new marketing ideas. But this will be especially fun since it's my first trip to Vegas.
