So, your relationship is going badly. Virginia has been giving you a lot of grief about not picking up your socks, leaving the toilet seat up, not putting your dishes in the sink, when you are done eating, you’re not taking notice of her emotional needs and you’re not the kind of lover that you once were, when you first met. Okay, so sure, maybe you do leave your socks and clothes everywhere. Is it that difficult to start picking them up? Keep the toilet seat down, from now on. Then she can’t complain. There really is no excuse for not walking the less than five feet, to put your dishes in the sink, when you are done. Send her a card now and then, pay attention when she is talking and show interest in what she says.
But, if you have finally had enough, if Virginia is that much of a pain in your backside, perhaps it is time to finally take a break, recharge your emotional batteries and head on over to the Kentucky Derby. The 2013 Kentucky Derby holds so much excitement and entertainment this year, it will be difficult to not be present for all the action! Oh, Virginia is not your girlfriend! She is the state you live, in at the moment! Well, fooled me!
Virginia Is Not Just A State Of Mind
Your problem may not be the person who you are with. I hesitate to call it a problem, but perhaps you have spent so much time traveling around the great state of Virginia that now you are struggling to find something else to do. As many historical attractions as Virginia has with landmarks and museums, from the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, sometimes you just need a little change of scenery. The Kentucky State line is not that far away.
Once at the Churchill Downs race track in Louisville, Kentucky, you can then bet on Kentucky Derby horses and with your winnings have an even better vacation!
Kentucky Has So Much To Offer
Besides the grandeur and splendor of the Kentucky Derby, with the 2 week long festival culminating in the running of the horses, fancily dressed women in outrageously extravagant hats, and mint juleps found at every turn, Kentucky is full of activities and sights to see. Downtown Louisville is a bustling friendly town with so much to do and see. Stop by the Louisville Slugger Museum, or the Muhammad Ali Center, or hit the night life, where the bars are open until 4:00 am on the weekends! Don’t forget that Kentucky National Park is one of the most breathtaking parks in the United States with Mammoth Cave. Want to get back to your childhood roots? Try one of Kentucky’s theme parks.
But you would be absolutely remiss, if you did not partake in one of the many whiskey tours along the bourbon trail, where you can visit the greatest bourbon makers first hand! No matter where you go or what you decide, there is always something to see in Kentucky, while the Derby is going on!
There are few things more frustrating to a salesperson than cold calling old leads that have fizzled out long ago. While some companies tend to recycle the same leads from inquiries received even a year ago, a more successful sales team really focuses on new, live leads to make sure that they are hitting their monthly quota. If you have been having problems coming up with some live leads for your sales team, building a website can help you see those sales numbers that you are dreaming of.
Building Your Website
If you are just now joining the digital marketplace, you have a bit of catching up to do, but you do have a few advantages over those that have been online for a while. For instance, businesses that have been online for a while may be stuck in their ways, whether those ways are beneficial or not. If you are just now building your site, you have the advantage of visiting other sites belonging to businesses that are similar to yours, so that you can get an idea of what you really want your site to look like while keeping enough of an open mind to be flexible with your design idea. Each business will be unique and their websites should reflect this individuality, but there is nothing wrong with perusing your competitors’ websites, just to see what they are doing and how you can improve on the designs you see.
Getting Live Leads
Once you have a website up and running, you have now implemented a great way to convert leads from “just looking” to “new customer”, simply by providing a way for potential customers to reach you and voice their questions and concerns. Any time you receive an email inquiry from a potential customer, you now have a chance to sell to a lead that is still hot instead of chasing year-old leads that have gone stale long ago. Any good salesperson knows that, in order to make a sale, you really need to strike when the iron is hot. Well, each time you receive an inquiry from a potential customer you should look at it as an indication that the iron is hot and ready for you to strike.
Websites can provide an almost endless supply of new leads for your sales team to pursue. It doesn’t matter if you are offering a service or a product, when you receive a customer inquiry you should imagine a potential buyer walking into a car dealership who just needs that little bit of a push to sign the dotted line. If your sales team is as great as they should be, they just might be that needed push.
It’s true that budgets are tight these days, but a much-needed family vacation can be less of a luxury and more an investment in some good old-fashioned quality time. We all work hard every day and we deserve a good old-fashioned vacation, whenever we can get one. You may want to consider something truly unique and exciting, such as Alaska fly fishing.
Well, why not? Have you ever been to Alaska? Do you like fly fishing? Do your kids like to fish? Of course fishing isn’t the only thing that people do in Alaska. They also hunt. And the beach front camping there is possibly not what you would expect, but perfectly doable, particularly at many of the beachside campsites/campgrounds. Swimming on the other hand is discouraged, unless you’re a polar bear. And while we’re on the topic of polar bears, the wildlife sightings in Alaska are definitely worth remembering your camera for. Imagine the fun you can have telling stories about that picture with Daddy and the whales (Orca), mountain goats, bald eagles, polar bears, black bears, brown bears or even a moose. It’s debatable which will be more precious… The picture of the animal itself or the look on D,ad’s face when that moose whispers sweet nothings in his ear.
Lots to See and Do
Since we’re talking about things you may never have done before, when was the last time you walked on ice? No I am not referring to a pond, a lake or even the shores of a slow running stream. When is the last time you hiked across a glacier? You can do that and much more in Alaska. The fishing all by itself makes the entire trip worthwhile. Particularly, if you’re into fishing on a Zen level. Or maybe rather than catching seafood, you enjoy dining out. You’re in luck there Buddy! Seriously, can you imagine seafood any fresher than from the icy cold waters off the Alaskan coast? In addition to Alaska’s salmon, you will be able to dine on Alaskan King crab and Snow crab. Makes your mouth water doesn’t? You will surely work up an appetite, with all the snow sports and sightseeing there is to do in this wild, winter wonderland.
Whether you choose to bring the kids along or not, this is a great vacation area that frequently goes overlooked. And that’s a real shame, because Alaska has so much to offer. No kids in the picture? Great! Why not experience a second honeymoon, in the Alaskan wilderness?
One of the best ways to combine a love for art with a love to travel is to stay at an art hotel. There are hotels all over the world that have art displayed either in their guest rooms or in galleries, within the hotel. Some of the art is displayed on the walls. Other times the art is everywhere. Furniture, custom mirrors and one of a kind sculpture art are all used in the artistic motifs, at world class art hotels. If you are looking for an innovative and unique experience, an art hotel might be the answer.
In the United States
You don’t have to travel abroad to experience the beauty and unique character of an art hotel. In fact, you may not even have to leave your state; there are art hotels all across the US.
Traveling the world is an adventure, adding the element of staying in art hotels along the way can bring a little enchantment to the whole travelling experience.
