Nantucket Confidential

Apparently Omar has left just enough cigars and wine in Nantucket for me to enjoy myself! Had my martini with blue-cheese-stuffed olives at the bar last night, with Mitch doing honors once again. (You can see Mitch in the August, 2008 postings of Nantucket Journal here on the blog.) We had the chef’s eight-course tasting […]

Alan’s New York Weekend

Reprinted from ContrarianConsulting.com: The limo arrived at 7:30, and I caught the Acela to New York, absolutely filled, 43 people in first class, but two great stewards who promptly served breakfast. I get the last single seat, since the Boston crowd had filled the train before Providence. The cab dispatcher at Penn Station was fantastic, […]

We manhandled some quarter-million-dollar cameras out of the way, and I addressed the “studio audience,” comprising professional speakers.  My wife and […]

Reporting From Sydney

I’m in Sydney running the first Six Figures to Seven workshop, which will also run in March in Las Vegas. This is the first time I’ve “debuted” an offering outside of the U.S. (One of the participants immediately told me that he is just finishing The Global Consultant, and loves it!) I’m staring at the […]

Alan From Dublin

I’m happy to be contributing to Omar’s blog, especially and appropriately since I’m writing from Dublin. On Sunday morning the limo driver told me it never snows in Dublin, and on Monday morning it snowed. He was right for 24 hours, barely. A great many clients are right for 24 hours or less, as well.
