Sometimes life, and a business venture, can leave you feeling cold, alone, void, colorless, hopeless, and with no end in sight.
Often, the answer, and the way to find the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is to:
ask questions of trusted friends/family
open lots of doors
don't give up
Sometimes this means that you will find yourself down a rabbit hole with no course of action but to turn around.
But keep going. Don't sit down. If you do, gather your thoughts, stand back up, and press on.
Life, business, and relationships are all on a moving track. If you jump off the track, you will find yourself hopelessly frustrated.
If you find yourself moving, but also constantly frustrated, perhaps you are blind to something in your life, or your business, and you need the counsel of a good friend.
Remember the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing, over, and over, and over, and expecting a different result.
A good many, in today's tough economic climates are looking for light at the end of the tunnel.
Son, if it makes you feel any better, I am bopping around those damp, dark, cold halls myself right now, as we are building this new business. The advantage I bring to this task is my 20+ years of additional life. I have learned that the quest is fun, and with persistence any task can be very rewarding.
There is much that we enjoy about Las Vegas, but there is also a great deal that we don't.
Not being gamblers, we are long past the allure of the clanging casinos, the smoke, the crowds and the general temptation that is calling us to leave our prurient behavior here.
We don't come to Las Vegas to bring out our inner demons, and tend to shy away from places where this is likely to occur.
However, we do enjoy Las Vegas for the food, the shows, and as is frequently the case, the conventions that are generally the impetus for our visit.
The Trump Collection in Las Vegas offers us a luxuriously appointed room, replete with a kitchenette, and even that long lost, and even greatly dreamed of Las Vegas appliance: a coffee pot!
The hotel is just a block off the strip, our room peers directly down upon the strip, yet we have the peace and quiet, the luxury, and the appointments that a well traveled baby boomer would come to expect, and appreciate.
Thank you Trump Hotel Las Vegas for another wonderful stay, and perhaps most of all, thanks for the coffee pot!
Travel Tip: when you stay at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas, request a room facing the east. This way you will not lay awake at night listening to the trains near the west side of the building.
