Fido, Felines, Fitness, Family and Friendships
Those who know me know I love my dogs. Spud, our precocious miniature dachshund, has been featured in many of my FreePromoTips.com videos. I've never been a cat person, but my animal loving son talked me into getting a cat to deal with a rodent problem we have. It turns out the cat, who we named Spartacus the Mighty Rat Killer, not only has done his job, he's pretty cool too. Geez, I'm one of those "cat people" now!
Through social media, I've gotten to know some other industry pets. Somehow I feel I know Walter Kurt's cat, Mr. Boozie, although I've never asked how they named him. Promo Pup from Motivators looks like a pretty fun dog. My wordsmith, Glenda Stormes-Bice, is very active in rescuing/rehoming pets, and shares her home with three rescued French bulldogs and two cats. Those who love animals are my kind of people.
Some of you may have participated in, or perhaps heard about the SuccessFit program at the 2015 PPAI Expo. This program raised money for the Promotional Products Education Foundation while pushing forward the benefits of fitness as it relates to success.
As part of the ongoing SuccessFit program, we created the FreePromoTips SuccessFit Facebook Group where everyone is invited to post what they do to have fun and stay fit. Please join us and share what you do away from the office! It's a community for people interested in the active lifestyle.
The FPT SuccessFit "Fun" Run/Walk started with a PPAI Board Member Challenge, where competitors Brandon Mackay, Dale Denham, Tom Goos and Charles Duggan, talked smack and had some fun with it. We kicked off Expo Week with a fun, energizing morning. This set the stage for making SuccessFit something that can be done annually at the Expo and around the country at regional events.
