Carol Denbow has provided a simplified step-by-step guide on Virtual Tours that… Continue

I recently read Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin’s Three Cups of Tea

In one of my favorite parts of the book, Mortenson describes a 1998 talk he gave in a sports shop in Apple Valley, Minnesota, where the store staff was so busy he had to set up the seating -- over a hundred folding chairs -- himself. After weeks of… Continue

This was a social week. I was invited to a swanky book release party. The book was the annual Las Vegas Business Press' Book of Lists. The party was held at one of the new $1M+ home developments in the valley. The house was, to say the very least, incredible. I've added it to my wish list! The party, with great food and beverages, was great fun. It was nice to hob-knob with the Vegas literary and business elite.
