Random

I am in the midst of preparing for a hectic travel schedule next month. It begins Monday when I travel to Missouri to do a series of meetings with one of our large customers. We will be calling on some of their key customers as well as conducting evening informational meetings for their customers and prospective customers. I look forward to the trip because it will help to cement the relationship with our customer as well as potentially generate new business through the meetings.

Later in the month I will be travelling to Georgia for the Sunbelt Exposition. It is a large agricultural trade show in Moultrie. This will be my first trip to this particular trade show. I will be working with our top supplier. I look forward to the trip because it is an area of the country where the potential is high, but our customer base is small. Hopefully it will help to create new opportunities for us in the Southeast.

After returning from that trip I will be heading to San Antonio for a few days to the annual meeting of the Texas Cattle Feeders. It is a good place to network with customers and hopefully to build some new relationships. Besides, any excuse for a trip to San Antonio....

It promises to be an interesting month. It is also our busiest time of year because of seasonal factors in the industry. Fortunately I have good people in our various locations that don't require close supervision. It makes it easier to get away for extended periods. Besides, in this age of cell phones, laptops, etc., the office goes with me.

Sandy: Duke seems to be well and without cast. He is extremely rambunctious which is not good since his movements need to be somewhat calm for another couple of weeks.

Very rarely does my spouse travel with me on business trips. Maybe once each year to a convention.

Sounds like an exciting line up. Be careful and have fun. It makes me tired thinking about it.

While you are gone, some ambitious underling will be scheming to overthrow you and take your job. It is the way of the world.
