Dear Freddie,
What have you checked off of your Bucket List recently?  Whether it is skydiving or visiting the Taj Mahal, get out there and do it!

Plus, set a good example for your clients.  After all, aren't we in the business of helping people to do their Bucket List 
I just got back from a Bucket List trip, visiting 8 new countries (for me) in Northern and Eastern Europe.  As a bonus, I got to do that with my partner and some wonderful friends.   I'm really a lucky guy!
Dave at the Peterhof Palace outside St Petersburg
Here are some of the things still on my Bucket list:
  Visit the Great Wall (China)
  Visit Angor Wat (Cambodia)
  See the northern lights (Aurora Borealis)
  Try curling

Here are some of Sandy's top Bucket list things:

- Take the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
- Do a Safari in Africa
- Stay in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora
- See Stonehenge in England
- Drink wine all throughout Italy!!

May you have fun planning and checking off your bucket list items.  May your work days be filled with joy in assisting others to do the same!

Can you see me waiving from the  base of the Victory Column in Berlin?

Happy selling!

Quote of the Month
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." 
Mark Twain
