Out of the blue.

Open the laptop and check my email. Junk Junk and more Junk. I begin the process of deleting all of the crap mail and come across one titled. “#### Thinks You’re an Expert”. (I have hidden the name of the company to keep things a little more fun when they start announcing things.) When I read the subject of the email I instantly thought it might be some kind of a sale flyer which I get from the company from time to time. I opened it up and its asking if I want to be part of this very vague but intriguing opportunity. I responded back saying that I would like to participate. I was told that If I would be selected I would be hearing back after the 11th of July. Time went by and I had totally forgotten about this entire email chain until this morning when I saw that I had a new message attached to that conversation. I opened it up  and there it was Congrats…. I am very excited to see where all of it goes and to help promote this great brand(s). Like always stay tuned for more awesome.

Happy Trails.
