This day is very interesting. Friday the 13th it hit me that is why my mood is not happy and fustrated.. The DATE... This got me thinking why do we sometimes wake up mad or upset or happy. Really what has control of this? I ask you all who are wiser than I who has control.

Did you know that the union worker for FORD made $70.00 an hour last year and because if the economy and the fact that their factory was closing and going under they allowed the union to drop their pay to only $55.00 an hour. ((I want that job, $114K a year)) next year they will be at $50.00 yet Detroit where the factory is the average home is valued at $18k??? Makes you think what the heck, we are bailing them out only to pay their over paid employees. Now if I could get that kind of money you know I would.... Just something to think about.
The country is asking why is Vegas special, why should they be any different than anyone else in the country. Well here is why, where else can you go and get everything Vegas has to offer at your finger tips? We have great space, great food and beverage, great entertainment. So when you are looking to book your next event, meeting, conference, convention look at VEGAS!!!! See you soon.

As I was speaking the other day to some students at TISOH (The International School of Hospitality) I found myself in a pickle. Do you talk about what everyone else is talking about regarding how "Bad" the economy is or do you give hope. I chose the hope way. You see I really believe that we are in a very "Unique Economy".. What you make of it is up to you.. Yes, people are hurting and yes, people are losing their jobs, but some people are doing well or doing just fine... You see, I recently lost my job and everyone was wishing me good luck, in a "I hope you find something in this BAD economy" kind of luck. Will I did find many jobs open and I started one of them after taking sometime off (1) month later. There are jobs out there for individuals, you just need to be willing to work them. I also found during my break, that it is all about the networking you have done for years. It is truly all about who you know to get in... So I challenge you to start networking.... So going back to my pickle, we talked about the "Unique Economy" and how we can get out of the mind set that all is bad. Mind over Matter.. Just a thought of the day here in fabulous Las Vegas.
