So You Think it’s Fun?
We travel the nation from Atlantic City to L.A.—sometimes in the same week! We have friends in almost every state and have enjoyed tasting food and wine with the “locals” as we travel. Personally, I have spent a sunny Sunday afternoon being a tourist in Seattle, sat outside on my hotel room balcony in February to watch the sunset (I’m from Minnesota and we don’t sit outside in February) and I’ve enjoyed dinner by the bay in San Francisco.
We have watched many reunions at airports—from children running down escalators to get to their grandparents, to puppies looking out passenger windows waiting for their “person” to walk through the airport doors, and of course the return of a member of our military finally coming home (where there’s not a dry eye in the crowd.) Balloons, signs, and flowers—it’s beautiful!
And yes, this is all a part of the job we do and love to do! Somehow all the good makes you forget about that canceled flight or that smelly rental car!
So I return to my conversation with friends and say, “You know, my job is fun! And I wouldn’t trade it for the world!”

What Sandy has shared really speaks to the core of how good relationships drive good business. The next time you see your rep at a trade show or in your office consider letting them know how much you appreciate what they do. Give them a big hug!
