Roundup and Link Love – Heading to Savanah Georgia

by Ron Haynes


I’m heading to Savannah, Georgia for my company’s annual meeting this weekend and I’m really looking forward to it! I get to take my wonderful wife on this trip and while I’m in meetings and seminars, she gets to tour and see this beautiful and historic city.

I already have some posts scheduled to run and a guest post on Wednesday that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. In the meantime, check out these great articles from the Life Skills Network and beyond:

Jeff at My Supercharged Life is donating up to $500 to a charity. Which one? It depends on you and whoever else leaves a comment on his post about it. Head on over today to put your favorite charity’s name in the hat. For every comment, he will donate $1, up to $500. The charity will be selected at random and the drawing will be closed on December 9. Hurry!

One of the topics I’ll be covering in a seminar I’m putting on in Savannah is Customer Service. Andy at Lifevesting poignantly correlates customer service to other areas of our lives. After reading his post, it really made me think.

Debt equals stress. No doubt about it, so imagine the stress of two mortgages on Gibble. Hopefully, his old house will sell very soon.
