Cocktails at The CosmopolitanIn early October, Jason and I took our wives, Trista and Missy, to Las Vegas for four nights for the 1st Annual Blue Gurus Retreat!

We wanted to get away for a few days to relax, have some fun, see some shows, play some craps and celebrate what has been a rewarding and productive year for the company.

We were fortunate enough to stay at The Cosmopolitan, a gorgeous property in the CityCenter area right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to our friend Paul Buchheit for hooking us up with wonderful rooms that had incredible views of the Bellagio Fountains and the Strip! We enjoyed a couple of cocktails with him when we got into town and it was a great way to start the trip.

Business Tip: Don’t wait to start having fun. Jump right in.

2. On the second night, Jason and Trista saw Terry Fator at The Mirage and Missy and I took in O at The Bellagio. Jason and I both had high hopes for the shows and both walked away a bit underwhelmed.
Business Tip: Be optimistic, but know that sometimes people and companies just can’t live up to your expectations.  Read more
