Well it was another spectacular Gold Coast day and certainly great weather for the team to kick back on Burleigh Beach at Pointbreak Bar and Grill, down some cold bevvies and a great feed.
I unfortunately missed out on a Bon Jovi concert last night in Brisbane, that I’d booked six months ago as a surprise for my family. The kids were ill on the weekend, decided to share the bugs… and left me shivering and feverish at home whilst they went and par-tayed without me.
So, I wasn’t about to let this event pass me by. Thankfully, I’d managed to stock up on some serious flu meds when in the States earlier this year, which came to my rescue and got me through the day, and a good time was had by all.
Well, 2013 has been a huge year for me!
I’ve had the privilege of heading off on three overseas adventures – twice to the United States and once to Thailand; diving the Great Barrier Reef; assisting clients with retirement savings needs, protecting their lifestyles, assisting with claims handling when things go pear-shaped; meeting some amazing people; cooking up some fantastic feasts and indulging in some great food and drink in beautiful places with wonderful company and getting to kick back with family and friends.
I figured I might just have to start a blog and share some of my adventures.
I’ve already got trips to Sydney and Melbourne for work lined up; an off-shore work retreat for the team to Bali; a conference in Kuala Lumpur with the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) amongst other challenges.
I’m really looking forward to three weeks R&R over the Xmas and New Year break, resting, refreshing, reading and writing and getting my head into a great place for a new year.
Catch you there!
