I apologize that I haven’t sent out a newsletter since October 2016. I’ve been in the Witness Relocation Program. Lots of changes here at Château Knebl, and all for the good. I didn’t get a newsletter out back in October 2016 for a week, then two weeks, then three weeks

This evening I get to do something which I only do about once each year. I’m delivering a local, public “High Tech + High Touch = Much Higher Success: Social Selling & Relationship Marketing for Huge Sales and Business Success Boot Camp!” in Colorado Springs.

I hope you’re having a nice Fall. Here in Colorado we don’t have the oranges, reds, and purples in the Fall leaves like they do on the East Coast but we do have amazing, almost neon yellow in our Aspens.

Okay, let’s start with the bad news. The Rockies ended their season a few days ago and the Mets were tied 0-0 with the Giants in the Wild Card Game last evening until the ninth inning when the Giants scored three runs and took the game. See you next year, Rockies and Mets.

While I love Yes, Rush, Genesis, Foo Fighters, Thelonious Monk, Leo Sayer, The Bay City Rollers, Moog Cookbook, Pat Metheny, The Soggy Bottom Boys, and lots of other musicians and I’m blessed to attend a lot of concerts, there’s always been a special place in my heart for opera and I’ve been a raving opera fan for decades. I’ve listened to Donizetti’s “Roberto Devereux” twice today between coaching clients.

It appears that it’s that time of year again when my little friends fly South for the Winter. I haven’t had any of my friends visit any of my feeders on our deck or the feeder attached to one of my office windows in about three days. I normally spend time with them every day.

I hope you had a great Labor Day holiday and that you’ve had a fun Summer. In August I took a week off from writing my newsletter and then that week stretched into two weeks, and then three weeks and then before I knew it we were into September. So now that Summer’s pretty much over it’s time to get back into the routine of writing my newsletter on a consistent basis. Many kind folks emailed me saying that they’ve missed my newsletter over the last few weeks. Thanks for your kindness.

Are you enjoying the Olympics as much as we are here at Château Knebl? We always get into the the Summer and the Winter Olympics. And we’re fortunate to have the USA Olympic Training Center just down the road in Colorado Springs.

It’s starting to get cooler in the evenings here at 7500′ in Monument, Colorado. And the sun’s starting to set sooner also. The kids are going back to school next week. Where did the Summer go? I was born and raised in NJ where it’s illegal to go back to school before Labor Day. They’re a little different here in Colorado.

I hope you’re having a fun Summer wherever you are. I was kindly asked to speak at a very exclusive Financial Advisor conference in Las Vegas a few days ago. I was asked to present after Stephen Hayes (FOX News) and before Elizabeth Smart (Childhood Abduction Survivor and Child Crime Prevention Advocate).

I hope you’re enjoying your Summer! It’s gorgeous here at 7500′ in Colorado. The hummingbirds are whirring around, the deer are in our yard early in the morning, the sunsets are gorgeous, and life is beautiful.

I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! Beautiful came home from her second annual Botswana Safari (camera not gun) on 7/2 after getting kinda stuck in Johannesburg, South Africa and then again in Munich, Germany. She had quite the adventure both on her two-week safari and also on her way back to Colorado.

I’m home this week and next (except for a speaking engagement I was kindly asked to deliver in Denver yesterday for the regional chapter of a national communications, marketing, and PR association) with two of our kids while Beautiful is in Botswana on safari for two weeks. This is her second year going on safari at Mashatu Game Reserve (camera safari, not gun safari). She goes with a group of Australian lady friends (she’s the only American) and a guide who happens to be the only man in the group and he actually has his own nature show on Australia television. He’s intimately familiar with Mashatu.

Well, Arapahoe Basin here in Colorado finally closed out the 2015/2016 ski season this past Sunday. Yes, you read that correctly. A-Basin opened back in October and finally shut the lifts down for the season on Sunday afternoon. Now, that’s a long ski season.

I hope you’re having a great start to your week. As this newsletter is hitting your inbox, I’m in Atlanta where I’ve been kindly asked to deliver a reading at my Uncle Fred’s funeral. He passed away on Friday afternoon while holding my Aunt Les’ hand in their home outside Atlanta.

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and remembered the reason for the holiday. What an amazing country we’re fortunate to live in. Yes, we have issues just like every family does, but all in all we’re blessed. And for you nice folks reading this in another country, I hope you feel the same way about your country.

The kids are getting out of school. Yes, it’s that time of year again. Growing up in New Jersey we never got out of school this early, but that’s how they roll here in Colorado. Tristan finished his last 9th grade finals last Friday and Calais finishes kindergarten this Friday.

I hope you’re having a great week! Wondering….whatcha been watching on TV lately? I’ve always had an interest in British history. Lately, Beautiful and I have been watching a bunch of shows on the Queen now that she’s 90 years old and also watching shows on British history and the monarchy in general. Fascinating stuff. Here’s a picture of me in the actual Abbey of Westminster Abbey while I was in London a few months ago to deliver some speaking and training engagements. There’s no photography allowed in Westminster Abbey so this pic was shot pretty quickly by my private guide.

Okay, now it’s really starting to feel like Spring. I spoke in the Midwest a few days ago and it was in the 80’s. Toasty. I was kindly asked to present at an insurance conference in Indianapolis, IN earlier this week. I deliver a lot of speaking and training engagements in cities like New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Miami, Dallas, etc so it’s fun to get to visit a city I don’t often get to like Indianapolis.
