50. Fifty is the total number of travel/out-of-town days I have currently under my belt for 2014. That’s not a typo, and definitely not an exaggeration. Work or play, I have more than a month and a half of traveling, and we are barely out of Q1.
73. Seventy-three is the total number of eligible “work days,” we’ve had thus far in 2014. Now granted, as an event professional, you often work on the weekends, but for the purpose of comparisons here, there have been 73 Monday through Friday “work days” in the 2014 calendar year thus far. For all you math majors out there, that’s about 68% of “work days” spent away from home (Minnesota).
105. One hundred and five is the very simple number that equals that total number of days in 2014. That means for nearly 50% of 2014, I have spent my time “on the road.” That is the primary reason for the delay in blog entries around FILO.
Now….I’m not complaining. We have done some tremendous jobs and worked on some great projects over the last 4 months (and year for that matter). I’ve been to Toronto, New Orleans, Boston, Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin and Memphis since January 1. The best part about it all, is imagining not traveling for those 50 days and being stuck in one of the worst winters Minnesota has seen in a VERY long time. So hats off to ya, 50.
For the immediate future, I don’t have any other trips planned, but that can change with the blink of an eye. This is what one comes to deal with when working in the events industry. Moral of the story here though, is that we are going to begin doing a better job of blogging and keeping everyone in the loop with the life of FILO. Busy = good. Good = fun. Fun = let’s keep everyone in-the-loop, Puff. :)
So stay tuned folks!
Until next time my bloggettes!
