Dear David,
Many of our industry colleagues have smaller territories than we do.  Some of them work in part of a province, or even a whole province or two. Some of them cover all of western Canada, but we have the pleasure of representing our accounts from coast to coast!
Signal Hill_ St John_s_ NL_ Nov 2015
I can tell you that Canada is big!  A few weeks ago, I was able to sales calls in St John's, Newfoundland. Before and after long days of sales calls visiting great agents and agencies, I am sometimes able to see a few of the local sites.

I was amazed when I figured out that in St John's (the start of the Trans Canada Highway), I was a lot closer to London, UK, than to home in Vancouver, BC.

Newfoundland and Labrador was the last Canadian province for me to travel in to do sales calls...Now on to the Canadian territories...

While I was in St John's and Halifax, Sandy was in Cancun leading a Krystal-Sunwing FAM.  You probably saw the FAM report HERE.  She is now leading another FAM to Puerto Vallarta, while I'm planning a trip to Winnipeg...

 Happy Selling!

Dave Emery
