Commemorating The NAIFA Iowa 2014 Sales Caravan
Appreciating the opportunity to connect with friends and meet new friends, and the opportunity to be of service to NAIFA Iowa where I am a member.

“I liked that the presentation offered a more psychological approach to improving business, changing your way of thinking and not allowing negative thoughts to impact what you do. It was a different way of looking at business and the impact of negative thoughts.” Becky[Continue Reading ... ]

In Flanders Fields By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

It’s 8:40 a.m. on Sunday morning November 8 in San Fransisco after successful presentations at the Legacy Top Producer Conference.
I am checked in for a flight from San Francisco to Chicago and then on to Moline, Iowa in advance of speaking at NAIFA Iowa’s Sales Caravan.
I arrived at the check-in counter at the flight gate at about 8:28 a.m. and the agent was walking away from the counter.

I said no and advised the agent that I wanted to change my seat for my 10:00 a.m. Chicago flight.
The agent said they would be right back and went through the flight loading ramp door and closed and locked the door behind them.
At 8:31 a.m. a person came up and[Continue Reading ... ]
