Hey, kids, it’s Dad and today I want to talk about teamwork and what it’s like to be on a team. There are teams all around us from singing in the choir to sports teams, to our family. All teams of sorts. My latest team that I am apart of is the Solutions Architects team at Esko and I love it! I love being on Team Esko and having teammates I can rely on. Kids, make the most of your teams and be a good team player!

Trust Your Gut!

Hey, kids, it’s Dad and last week was a rough travel week with some serious snow in Chicago. My Monday flights were canceled and my Friday return flights were moved to Thursday. So then I get the notification that my new Chicago flights on Thursday may be in jeopardy now…. Ugggg.

Well, my gut told me that if I flew from Cincinnati to Chicago, my connecting flights would be canceled. Corporate travel helped confirm my suspicion but nothing was 100% till it happens. But regional air travel through O’hare gets second-class treatment and flights get canceled there for the smallest of reasons.

So I trusted my gut and I drive the 500+ miles from Dayton Ohio to Appleton. AND I WAS RIGHT! ALL FLIGHTS FROM ORD CANCELED! I would have been stranded there until at least lat Friday night if not Saturday! Kids trust your gut!!

A strange weather pattern in Chicago made for some salty people and an opportunity for me to be nice. Listen to my AVIS upgrade story!

Hey, kids, it’s Dad. Today I want to talk to you about a success story 10 years in the making. This year Red Shoes PR turns 10 years old. What an amazing story.

Lisa Cruz and her team of awesome “shoes” started something from nothing and built a public relations empire here in Appleton Wisconsin. To celebrate their sending out red shoes PR “happy socks” as my friend Dawn like to call them.

Congratulations to the entire Red Shoes PR team. Many have come and gone over 10 years but you all played a huge role in the success of this Appleton institution. So many things can be learned from this success story. I know it didn’t come easy, and I’m sure there were times that they wanted to throw in the towel, but they still stuck with it and they have been successful!!
