Success in the Rain, July 2011 - 07/29/11 03:25 PM
Every morning I drive along Lake Washington Blvd before hitting the floating bridge to get to my awesome job. LW Blvd is always crowded with early morning runners, new moms strolling along Starbucks-in-hand and lots of groups of walkers. This morning I saw a very old man bend down to pick up some garbage that wasn't his while his little old wife waited; probably took him a good 15 seconds to do it too. It got me thinking..."Would I have bent down to pick it up?" Sadly, probably not. It's not my trash but it is my Community. I want my (39 comments)
Success in the Rain, July Style - 07/22/11 04:05 PM
Each of us has our own interpretation on what success is and if you read the stories below you'll agree. Taking on new clients, increasing exposure and helping get your story out are just a few. Always believe in yourself and your words; don't be afraid to show the world what you got baby! Spice up your day and just go for it! If you have yet to write your own success story, I urge you to do so. Simply go to your profile page and click "edit" located next to My Profile (edit).

Venice - 07/19/11 04:13 PM
There's a beautiful place on Earth they call Venice. I've never seen anything like it in my life and probably never will again. What a fantastic day we had. Porting into Venice was a treat all in itself as we were able to see the city from above, (our ship was quite massive....I don't think King Kong could've missed us). This little piece of heaven is made up of 118 individual islands connected by tiny little bridges. Have you seen The Tourist with Angelina Jolie and my king Johnny Depp? It looks just like this movie, no joke. We took a (25 comments)

Success in the Rain - 07/15/11 04:24 PM
This week has been one filled with new lessons inside and outside of work. It's important for us all to constantly grow as humans. Staying stagnant is for the weak and new projects and goals are sure to ignite a fire within. Try taking your careers to new levels by exploring paths you've yet to travel. There is nothing wrong with trial and error. Find something new that works and rock it! Shout out to our infamous Bob Stewart for hitting 300,000 points today!

Mini-Meet Me: Lunching in Las Vegas on July 15th - 07/13/11 01:13 PM

Success in the Rain - 07/08/11 04:57 PM
It's that time again folks....time to dive in and read some fabulous stories from this week's highlighted members. I've been chipping away at some home projects that have been hanging over my head. I've put them off too long but finally tackling these projects has visible benefits as well as a lighter feeling on my part. Sometimes it's just easier to get 'er done and not constantly worry about them. How many times do you brush your teeth in the morning and think of all the lingering tasks? Or sometimes they decide to creep into your head just as you're about (33 comments)
Kotor, Montenegro - 07/07/11 06:49 PM
Ko-tuhhh, like a kitten purring, is how I pronounce Kotor. It's a beautiful name for a beautiful place. The city lives on the hills and the water is part of the Adriatic sea which is as blue as can be. We tendered again into port as our ship was much too big. Much of the city of Kotor is behind a big wall and we walked around inside. It was gorgeous. There were cats everywhere and little kittens running in and out of shops. A little girl was crying because she wanted to take one of them with her and her (19 comments)
Naples, Pompei & Sorrento - 07/05/11 06:29 PM
Before leaving on my TOAL, I heard horror stories about pickpockets. Naples was the first place I felt a little uneasy. We had about a mile walk from where the ship ported to the train station. I was adamant about visiting Pompei so we took the train there. My mother is from NY. She has always worn about as much jewelry as Mr. T. I made her take off about a pound of it before the trip but she was still iced out. And of course my bro-in-law decided to use the ATM on our walk which caused even more attention (23 comments)
