Greetings again from 42000’………
First and foremost, wishing each of you a safe and successful 2015. By the way, does anyone remember 2014 or have any proof it even existed? I am writing this on February 2nd on my way west which seems to be my general direction so far this year. I typically catch the weather each morning in the gym, and grateful my planes have not been pointed east so far. I am unsure as to what sins that coast has committed, but I’m guessing they are severe and plentiful. They are taking a beating this winter. To my inner circle in NY – hang in there, June is right around the corner (he typed smirking while making his tee time online knowing mid 70’s await his return to the country of Texas).
I swear as I age (ungracefully) and keep hopping these birds, all I see is a tally at the end of the year and remember none of it. I put another 100K in the air last year, and I am guessing more of the same for ’15. I went over 10K in January alone already. I don’t see this changing until someone teaches me the professional art of saying “No”. Any takers? No? Well, apparently someone out there is good at it. Sigh. This having a conscience thing equals a delicate balancing act between professional integrity and personal needs. I’m humbled, shocked, bewildered, and relieved every single time a client reaches out requesting for my personal services again the following year. The result is a calendar which, at this point, booked out until late September. I just put something on my calendar for 2016 over the weekend. Crazy, right? As long as I get my 50% a month with my teenage sociopath, my professional integrity drives me to be available to WZ clients and the WZ team. So save me a parking spot at the airport – I’ll be there – just have your people ready.
