But first- the big announcement from vacation- The big guy is officially Sales Rep of the Year! What does that mean you ask? Allow me to brag about my hubby for a moment as I explain. It means that throughout 2009, in a difficult economy, he found a way to manage his existing clients and bring on new clients to grow his business and reach 146% of his sales goal for the year. Not too shabby if you ask me! It also means that out of over 150 people who do what he does in the company, sell the same product line, he's the best. Pretty big deal.
As a part of his award for being a top performer, we went to Palm Beach and stayed at the Breakers. Absolutely gorgeous, and I've got some pictures on my iPhone to download so I can show you some of what I saw there. We relaxed by the pool, we ate some amazing food, and despite my best efforts I got sunburned.
One picture I will show you today, is the result of our deep sea fishing trip.
It's a little small, it came from my phone, but what you're seeing is real. The big guy fought a shark and won. He pretty much bullied the shark and out muscled it, all 80 pounds and 71 inches of it, to get in in the boat. Pretty big challenge.
My challenge? Finding a spot for it on the wall in the office. Yup, we're getting it mounted. As a little reminder of the trip. Well, ok, not so little. I'm thinking it will remind him of just how amazing the past fiver days were so that he'll keep being amazing and earn a spot on the trip again next year.
