Book Party In New York City!

Monday Motivation: 

"The power of a future provides more than hope, 
it's the fuel to keep you going." 

We all need something to look forward to. A reason to wake up. Something that can keep us motivated and going forward. A new type-rating, a job, a birth, publishing your book, a wedding, a date, graduation, starting school. Some people think looking forward is living beyond the moment. But the power of having something to look forward to, brings power to the moment. It creates energy, joy, and an reason to wake up. 

Jeremy Carlisle is giving us all something to look forward to in November.

Flight For Control in New York! 

I will be joining Jeremy Carlisle in New York City on Saturday night, November, 10th, 2012, and we want you to join us. 

Jeremy won a contest many months ago and received five copies of Flight For Control, and a book club visit. What impressed me about Jeremy, among so many other things, was his careful selection of whom he wanted to give the books to. He is truly someone who gives from the heart. Everyone should be lucky enough to have a friend like Jeremy. And someone will get to meet him. 

Jeremy is running a contest, open to the public for one lucky winner and a guest to Join us at this special event. I will be flying in on the 9th. Party on the 10th. I'll travel out on the 11th.
