Training Post 2

New Orleans Training Day 2 (April 10th)

Well, after a pretty good night of sleep, I got up about 5:30am to get a jump on the morning and because I couldn't really go back to sleep. I got ready and couldn't really decide when to leave my room. Part of me just wanted to crawl back in bed because I didn't think I was ready for the day. However, I left my room and got on the elevator. In the elevator, I kept thinking that I should just catch a plane home. I am missing Tatum like crazy and I didn't know what to expect. After getting off the elevator, I headed to the bus to catch a ride to the Convention Center. When I got there, I saw some other people that are on my team, so we all got together so we would know someone. I also met a lady from Pennsylvania and one from Waco, TX. Laura, the lady from TX, has the same birthday as I do!!! How crazy is that? Anyway, after breakfast, we headed to our General Session meetings. There sitting at our seats were more presents. We got a NN bag, pens, highlighters, note pads, etc. It was cool. They were playing some great music and it was loud. We were all singing along with Justin Timberlake and just waiting on the meeting to start. When everything started, I just kept having to pinch myself. The production of the meeting was amazing. They had lights coming in and cool entrance music and everything. It was just so weird! It almost felt like I was dreaming. I am so excited about everything. I am about to study, but it has been great. I have made lots of new friends and I have also met many VPs and even got to talk to the President of the company for a while. We talked about the usual when it comes to Memphis (great BBQ, Graceland, Memphis Tigers Basketball, etc).

The coolest thing about today was when the President was presenting his speech. He was showing projected #s from the past and telling how NN has met those goals for the past 5 yrs. Well, he said if we meet our #s for 2007 then at the end of 2008 they will rent out a cruise ship for the ENTIRE SALES FORCE(and family) to go on a cruise in the Virgin Islands!!! He was serious too and he said this would be on top of a trip for those that make Circle of Excellence!! WOW, I am excited and definitely motivated!! I want that cruise!

Anyway, I am off to study. Sorry, but you are going to be reading lots of blogs with no pics for a while. Antonio said he was going to send me some pics of Tatum tomorrow, so I may try to get some up. I also figured out how to get the internet for free in my room, so I will blog when I can. Take care and continue to keep me in your prayers. I have a big test tomorrow!!

Until next time....
