Pechanga Resorts & Casino - June 8-10

Excited to spend a weekend at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, CA!

The newly and majorly expanded resort offers all the amenities and then some of a Las Vegas casino, without the traffic or overload of sensory input.
In March, the resort wrapped up a $300 million expansion. Visitors will find a casino larger than any of its Nevada neighbors; a stand-alone two level day spa that incorporates Native American healing and botanicals into all of its treatments, serves spa breakfast & lunch, also provides free yoga and boot camp classes & a full hair and nail salon; a 4.5-acre pool complex with 4 pools, 3 hot tubs, a family pool with waterslides, dozens of stocked cabanas; 1,090 luxury rooms & suites; 20 restaurants and bars; A-list entertainment (Cirque, Donny & Marie, Terry Fator and more); and a championship 18-hole golf course.

Social Media Week 2018 - Lima, OH

I'll be speaking at Social Media Week Lima 2018! And it's Lima, OHIO, not Peru. 😀  This conference offers an outstanding value and dives into all the latest social media trends and capabilities. This focus is on relationships, and how to develop them through marketing best practices. And then there is me, providing comic relief with my talk “How to build a strong community and tribe aka: How to Not Transact Like An Asshat”

If you'll be in the Midwest in June … join us!! June 20 & 21

Italy! Bella Vita Tour with Collette Travel - September 2018

We are excited to partner with Collette Travel again and take a trip to Italy for the Bella Vita Tour, featuring Florence, Bologna & Lake Como.

Here's what to expect:

The allure of Italy beckons with saturated vistas that inspired the Masters. Discover a majestic wine country where vineyards dot the valleyed landscapes, calling you to enjoy the flavors of their soil ripe with vintage character. Discover Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo’s David. On a Vespa, zoom through olive groves, hillsides and vineyards to a castle for a wine tasting. Learn to make pasta in Bologna and see the city your way – on foot or from the seat of a bicycle. Stop and celebrate the gastronomic adventures afforded by Bologna and Parma, and explore the Alps-laden Lake Como and its legendary villas. This is Northern Italy, where la bella vita is alive, well, and mandatory.
