Yes! I'm coming to New York!
My son Michael and his family moved to Brooklyn last July and I'm going to visit them in November for Thanksgiving. Terry is going to stay home because of finances. (We shot our travel budget this summer going to Italy.) I'm flying on frequent flier points!
I was telling my friend Kathy Roberts (we've done two webinars together), that I'm going "back east" and she said, "Let's do a workshop together while you're here!" I said, "I leave to come home the day after Thanksgiving and doing a get organized workshop the week before Thanksgiving would be nuts!" She agreed, but then she said, "Stay longer and we'll do it after Thanksgiving."
Here's the back-and-forth dialogue after her comment:
Me, "No I can't change my flight because I'm using frequent flier points and when I booked it, they told me it'd cost me if I changed anything."
"Call 'em and just see if it really will. And if it costs you one cent, it'll be a sign we don't do it."
"So when should we have the workshop?"
"November, 28, does that sound good? It's on a Tuesday and you could go home on Wednesday."
"Okay, I'll call 'em."
So I called the airline and told the woman when my flights were and that I used frequent flier miles to book them and that someone had told me I couldn't change the flights or it'd cost me money. She tapped in the info and asked me the date changes? I told her the new dates and she tapped some more.
"Well by changing your flight, you'll get 17,000 miles back!" I couldn't wait to tell Kathy!
Once we knew we could do our workshop on Tuesday, November 28, we've merged our teaching to bring you a very fun and informative day! AND LUNCH TOO!
That photo of us was taken at a seminar I did in Boston several years ago. Kathy and I had never met until then, but had been friends via the internet for several years.
As we've become closer, we've discovered we approach life from the same angle...that life is supposed to be good. Everything is always working out and we no longer care to try to make anything happen. Just like in changing the flights, there's just no need to push. If it's easy then it's right and good.
I've got at least 25 years on Kathy, so our perspectives are different just because of the age difference. That's a really a good thing for us as teachers blending our message, because it covers a wider range of ages. (I'm sort of the "assurer" that life just gets better and better.) The bottom line is we're going to have fun with you, if you show up. We have no idea or expectation of numbers, just that we want to do this! Since it's a spur-of-the-moment affair, and right smack during the holidays, we know there will be no BOs (Born Organized) coming for sure! But you are a different story. You love spur-of-the-moment events and this gathering is going to be filled with fun so I know you'll be there if you can.
I hope you can join us! Get your calendar out and see if the date will work for you. The cost is $99 and it includes lunch. AND (drum roll) if you bring a friend she comes free! Consider it a girl's day out. Kathy has been to this restaurant before and she said the food is delicious. So let's have lunch and get ready for 2018 which is going to be the best year ever! November 28, from 12:00 to 4:00.
See you soon!
