If you know me at all, you know I am a big believer in reflecting, visioning, and favoriting. I’m wrapping up the year with a blog to commemorate the high fives and fist bumps that occurred for my clients and me. If I included all of them, it would be pages long, so I’ll spare you the nap and keep it short.

Highlights of 2017

  • Spoke in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to Emaar Properties top 100 executives. Emaar built the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. Amazing isn’t even the right word.
  • Hacked the Mobile Lifestyle with the Texas BTA and received my Texas doorknob. They were a fantastic group, and the whole experience was super fun.
