I’d like to take the last day before this holiday weekend to recognize some friends who have had some absolutely remarkable things happen for them these past few months! We can always stand to step back for a few moments and appreciate the good things in our lives. I heard a saying yesterday that will stick with me for quite some time – “You can’t get a good look at the picture, if you’re part of the frame.” Well today, I’d like to show some recognition to my friends for some of their recent accomplishments.

1)

Great work on your mile run, Bill!

Bill Lage of 365 Things To Do In The Twin Cities recently ran the Medtronic Twin Cities 1 Mile, and ran it in 10:06, coming up short of his goal to run it in under 10 minutes. However, when the official results were posted on the website, Bill’s time came in at 9:37.9! Strong work, Bill!

Andrew Lonergan promotes a healthy lifestyle and raises awareness about Diabetes Prevention on “Project Not Me”.

When my friend and business partner Andrew Lonergan told me last summer that he was going to be appearing in a new reality show, I thought he had gone crazy. But he is. Project Not Me will be airing this coming fall on Lifetime and is part of the Diabetes Prevention Program, aimed to raise awareness, help those that are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes and how people just like us can prevent this disease. Can’t wait until it airs, Lonny!!!

David and his girlfriend Krystal in Las Vegas

In this economy, it’s scary for people of all ages. Just this week it was announced that two local Minnesota companies will be cutting jobs. Social Security will not be around for us. College kids are pumping millions and billions of dollars into their college education with little to no return on that investment because the job market is so dry. Well, tell that to my friend David Helegeson who got started with The Coolest Travel Club In The World about 10 months ago. With one decision to do something different in the travel industry, he has grown an organization of over 1200 customers allowing him to achieve the rank of Marketing Director in a worldwide, world-class company. He also received news that he will be speaking to hundreds of people at a conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in June to train people how they can do the same thing themselves. Proud of you, David!

Lisa Larrive at her recent book signing for Grateful For Gluten-Free

My good friend and business partner Lisa Larrive has written a book called “Grateful For Gluten-Free.” It’s about a young girl named Gabby who has celiac disease. Gabby cannot eat foods with wheat or gluten, and she loves it when her Mom makes her favorite gluten-free food – PANCAKES! Gabby’s journey helps her discover how grateful she is to live gluten-free – not only because it is delicious, but because it can be fun too! Great work, Lisa, in raising the awareness for celiac disease and the gluten-free lifestyle. Please give her Grateful For Gluten-Free Facebook Page a like, and purchase a copy on Amazon.
