Day 241…

11.14.12

Up early to get to the gym to see my trainer.  Thankfully, before I leave my apartment I check my email to see that my trainer had to cancel since her dog was sick.  I try to go back to bed for some extra shut eye, but alas it is a wasted effort.  Since I’m up I figure I’ll just head to the office early and get a jump on the day.  To work I go!

I’m slammed literally from the second that I walk in the door.  We have a very important client call at 10am and there is some legwork that needs to happen before we jump on the line.  Mindy and I work through our meeting prep and jump on the call.  The call is rather difficult, there is a lot to review and the initial data isn’t as promising as we were hoping it would be.  While cause to worry somewhat, we talk through the issues with the client and work together on how to properly frame the information for a call with a broader group at 3pm…I go straight to another call after the first one ends and present a brand new look for a long-standing client.  The absolutely love the work so that brings my spirits back up after the call I had just been on…straight from this call I go into another meeting.  Somehow I have to find time to work on the revised deck for the 3pm call…it’s going to be one of those days…

Work through lunch and race to the finish to get the deck out before heading to a new biz meeting at my old college friends company…we have a really productive conversation and I’m hoping that we will be awarded the work once we respond to the RFP…racing back to the office for my 3pm call…just make it and the call begins…we are hoping that the new deck we wrote today will be received well by the larger group as we go through the results…after a somewhat tenuous start, everyone warms up to the deck and we end up having a very productive call…from there it is onto yet another call and then I can finally sit down and breathe…

Heading home to hang with Riley for a bit before walking her and then heading to dinner…I’m starving like always, so really looking forward to a good burger at Hillstone…dinner doesn’t let me down…

Back home, watching Top Chef and then to bed…

Night all…
