Happy New Years greetings from back in Peoria!!!
I got back last night from a little R & R down in the Gulf Coast region and as always, it was great!!!! The only tough thing was coming back to temperatures in the 20’s when it was in the 60’s this past week! Oh well, maybe I need a road trip!!!!!
One of the fun little drives that we’ve gotten to do for a number of years now is Rt. 1 south of New Orleans along the cannel to Grand Isle, La. It’s a mix of small towns and a lot of fishing and shrimp boats along the way! It’s been interesting to see this area before and after Hurricane Katrina and things have been coming along pretty good since all of that five years ago. Here’s a series of snaps from the day spent on Rt. 1 down to Grand Isle, La.
It’s the start of 2011 and as always, I remain optimistic about business! This past year, business was up 33% and that was very encouraging considering that 2009 was my worst year ever in business! You always have to look for the silver lining in any cloud! The other interesting stat was that 85% of my work was outside of Central Illinois, so I spent a lot of time on the road as you’ve been able to tell from my promos this past year!!!!
I have no idea what’s going to happen this year or where those shoots will take me, but I’m ready to get started today!!!!
Thanks as always for being a part of my travels and promos and I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing what I’ve been up to! Let’s all make 2011 a fantastic year!!!!!!
