I am in Chicago until tomorrow. We are getting slammed with a big snow and ice storm. I was going to fly out tonight but the risk is not worth it. I’m a good pilot but even I know my limits.
I had a great Christmas. I took 19 of my family and friends to Morehead City, North Carolina for 5 days of Christmas fun. The past several years I had spent the holidays alone and caught up on work. This year I’m doing a lot better and really wanted to be with my family. It was stressful and fun. We stuffed way too much into 5 days. By the time I got home on Sunday I crashed.
I will be leaving Chicago for a month. I’m going to Las Vegas for all of January to get that office pushed into the next level of commercial investments. There are a lot of great opportunities now that several large casinos are struggling financially. I plan to get as much percentage as I can to build up my west coast investment portfolio. My Los Angeles office is the smallest office I have but they make up for 65% of my profits. They constantly do such an excellent job I need to go out there more to thank them all.
The 2nd weekend in Vegas I will be going to Seattle for 3 days. I’m meeting some friends there for a wedding. I’m excited to visit there.
My ebook will finally be released in the next 2 weeks. If you have preordered thank you for that. I have 4700 + preorders. I can’t believe that many people are interested. A lot of them are from overseas. I didn’t know I had an international interest. Very cool! It will be followed up by the release of the actual book. In paperback only. I only ordered 1,000 paperbacks to be printed because I believe most of my sales will be digital.
My publisher, as experienced as they are, have been a giant pain in my ass. I had no idea the headaches I would deal with writing a book. I’m happy to be almost done with this whole process.
I have met an amazing young lady named Ellie. She and I have been talking for months and are planning for trips, fun, and good times together in our future. She is young, 28 and I am very attracted to her intelligence. She is very, very smart and she challenges me a lot. She is also beautiful. My first dark haired girl in a long time. I have always loved blondes. But like she said the blondes haven’t been working out its time for a change Lol
I am happy. I can’t wait to spend New Years Eve in Las Vegas with Lindsay and her fiancée Ben. I know it’s going to be a drunken party of fun. She has been asked to host a vip area party by a hotel on the strip and everything we want will be comped for the night. She texted me at 2 am this morning and asked me to make sure she doesn’t drink all the champagne by herself Lol She is still crazy and I love her for that. I can not wait to have a fun night. I need it.
I hope everyone had a great Holiday season. I love ya’ll! Stay warm!
