 Last week, we drove 2 hours from Valparaiso, IN  to Indianapolis, IN  to attend a 3 day class act event with world renouned speakers that gave us plenty of quality information to improve businessnetworking and referral opportunities and fun.

Even the choice of LOCATION for this event speaks loudly to the caliber of Company we affiliate with by actively supporting this facility -> The Gene B. Glick  Junior Achievement Education Center.

By far, our Favorite Speaker at the event was TERRY WATSON                                                                Grace Safrin, CRS and Terry Watson, International Speaker

Wow Gary - I didn' know that - during the Home Links awards, Jeff & I were asked to speak at the franchise owners meeting ( going on simultaneously)  on the topic of reverse offers. After that we left to meet family for dinner at Daddy jacks ( Jeff is from Indy ) -wow that place is like CHEERS- he ran into several people he knew growing up LOL

next time for sure
