News Bigger Than WA Las Vegas 2017
This was my fifth time getting to attend the WA conference out in Las Vegas. I usually blog about the trip when I get back and talk about the secret to getting to Vegas or I recap my goals and successes but this year, I have something different I want to share...
Amanda and I are expecting our first child!
Before you ask, we don't know the gender and we aren't planning on finding out until the baby is born.
So, why blog about this?
Aside from the obvious wanting to share the good news, I wanted to discuss just how lucky Amanda and I are to be in this business.
I've had two groups of friends that have recently had their first child. In the first group, the father was "lucky" to be given a whole week of paternity leave. The second, had no time off at all and had to be in work the following day after the baby was born.
Each and every day I am extremely thankful for the life I was able to build and the opportunities provided to me by my websites, Kyle & Carson, and the entire Wealthy Affiliate community. Amanda and I will have an active role in raising this child. Very few people get such a simple luxury. But, I'll be able to be in my child's life every single day and I will appreciate them all.
(And yes, I know my glasses are tinted a tad shade of rose and I should revisit this blog two days after the baby is born.)
What does this have to do with Las Vegas?
The Vegas conference drives me every year to be better than the last. While that hasn't always been the outcome, it does keep me moving in the right direction. Each year I try and improve how early I get invited and try and knock down that sales counter until it shows zero.
To do that, I need to grow my business in more ways than one and in doing so, I grow the opportunities available to not only me, but also my family. This is especially important now that a little one is on the way.
I will be back in Vegas next year and I look forward to seeing you there.
One last ultrasound before I go. We've been calling this picture 'Attitude' as the baby is making some sort of hand gesture. I have said it's throwing up the rocker hand but other people have said they see something else.
Either way, this kid is going to be a handful and we'll love every ounce of it.
