As of tonight, Dirty Little Secrets is #2 in the sales category on Amazon!
How exciting! I am so happy I can barely express it!
I have a lot of people to thank. The most amazing thing is that I’ve never
met most of these angels – we have met over the past months (in some cases
a year or more) over the phone!
First, and friend par excellence, is Jeff Blackwell of SalesPractice.com.
Even though we don’t know each other well, he fell in love with Buying
Facilitation and my decision facilitation model quite a while ago, believing
that Buying Facilitation® completes the sales model – with integrity. He
has been tirelessly, and obnoxiously (smile) pitching me and the new book
daily for months. He humbles me.
My friend Jill has been my sounding board, my mother, my friend, and my
coach. Without her, I might have had a different book – certain... (more)

I thought it could be a good idea to provide you with a detailed excursion
plan if you ever decide to visit Rhodes island, the largest of the
Dodecanese islands group in Greece. This is actually the route I followed in
Sept 2007 when I visited the island.
The programme below is a 10 day itinerary, including your arrival and
departure days, which you may follow while you will be visiting
Rhodes island. You can customize the programme to your own taste and
time table. In some future articles I will be explaining to you in detail
some of the wonderful places at Rhodes island.
Day 1. Arrival day. After you get your hotel room it is time to reserve your
tickets for the nearby islands Symi and possibly Tilos. Then arrange with a
rent a car company for some small car which you will use in your excursion.
In the evening stro... (more)
Private adventure yachting is the “end all be all” for discriminating
travelers. It is a world that is continuously in transition as new global
destinations and adventure possibilities are discovered. We’ll take you
inside the luxury world of cage diving with Great White sharks and show you
how to plan your personal National Geographic-style adventure in comfort
aboard your own private yacht.
A New Era of Exploration
Until ten years ago, high-end travelers had limited options for satisfying
their adventure bug. Now well-heeled explorers have expanding opportunities
to climb Mount Everest for $100,000 or rent their own private game preserve
in Kenya. According to the World Tourism Organization, an agency of the
United Nations, “eco-tourism and nature tourism are growing three times
faster than the tourism industry in general.” Today’s active
vacationers want unique ... (more)
Graduate student Laura Albers decided last year to spend her summer this year
traveling Europe and she made it her personal mission to convince her sister
and two best friends to join her on the journey. Lucky for Laura, they
didn’t take too much convincing. They met up on the other side of the globe
for a holiday in Greece. This is their story…
Day 1: Arrival in Athens
My friend Katie and I land in Athens in the early afternoon and wait for the
arrival of our two co-voyagers – which takes nearly the entire day, but by
the end of it we’re together, the four of us, and are finally ready to
begin our adventure.
We make our way to the hotel, wash away the travel dust, and go for a nice
dinner in the Plaka – a beautiful area of Athens with plenty of shops,
cafes and restaurants. The food is delicious – souvlaki (think meat on a
stick), tzatziki (an amazing white sauce... (more)
Even before her 2004 launch, the Lürssen-built Phoenix was being spoken of
in reverent tones among the yachting set. Here our writer Scott Rose details
this 201-foot beauty’s myriad irresistible attributes.
The megayacht Phoenix is a crowning glory of contemporary Art Deco style.
Indeed, her many world-class technical refinements combined with the artistic
of her design and décor distinguish her as a supreme fulfillment of the
spirit of the 1925 event in Paris from which the term Art Deco was derived,
L’Exposition Internationale des Art Décoratifs et Industriels
Some interpret her name, Phoenix, to stem from her genesis. So exacting was
the owner in his technical specifications for the yacht that it seemed no
shipyard was going to be able to achieve his vision. Yet the broker Robert
Moran, inspired by the potential magnificence o... (more)
Following five successful years chartering in the Caribbean and the
Mediterranean, the sumptuous 151ft Royal Van Lent Feadship, Northern Light,
will embark on her most exotic journey yet: the sun-drenched islands of the
It’s difficult to envision a more alluring destination, a tropical
haven of unspoiled nature, rich with coral reefs and teeming with bird and
aquatic life. An immense island chain where sparkling blue lagoons combine
with sugary white sands, and trips ashore to ancient temples and tea,
cinnamon and avocado plantations reveal a colorful
culture, steeped in history. Even better, the intriguing Indian Ocean, the
third largest of the world’s oceans, bounded by Asia, Africa and
Australia, is also one of the few areas of the world that remains relatively
free of large-scale commercialism and mass tourism. Lest you think its

The city of Priene, an Ionian settlement, was laid out on Mount Mycale
(Samsun) and contained many famous examples of Hellenistic art and
architecture. The original location of the city has never been found but it
was probably a peninsula with two harbors. The ruins are from the new city
built in the 4th century BC. It is a small city with 4 or 5 thousand
inhabitants and not of great political significance even if it shared the
same history with the other Ionian cities.
The city is mainly organized in four districts, the political (bouleuterion
and prytaneion), the cultural (Theatre), commercial (a gora) and most
importantly religious (Athena Temple) In addition to the Athena Temple, the
people of Priene erected sanctuaries dedicated to Zeus, Demeter and Egyptian
The city was a member of the Ionian League, and has been bui... (more)

Why in the world, you might well ask, is this yacht named Aspen
Alternative? The idea is that instead of shivering in the Rockies in
winter, you should be in her hot tub in the Bahamas, a frozen drink in your
hand, the sun warming your soul.
M/Y Aspen Alternative is a 120’ yacht, built in 2002 by Sovereign with
a sleek, swept-back exterior design by Ward Setzer. From her four cabins to
her sun-kissed decks to her sound-proofed study, she is grand enough to make
you feel like royalty, yet intimate enough for a highly-personalized,
First Mate and Engineer Brian Finneran makes the very good point that
communicating up front your heart’s desire for a charter helps the
captain and crew to give you a prime experience. He says: “The more
information you provide us through your broker and preference charts, the

Perge, originally, a Hellenistic settlement, later developed into a thriving
Roman city, is a historicist's delight. Situated only 18 km from Antalya in
the Pamphylia plain, Perge has a long legacy (almost from 1500 B.C.) to
narrate with its initial inhabitants being the Hittites. Its importance also
lies in the fact that the ruins of the Roman city provides a very complete
picture of the past, thus making it archaeologically invaluable. However,
even if you are wondering how an archaeologically fertile site could ever
interest you, you should never miss a chance of visiting it. For Perge has
much to offer for the vacationer as well, it has a unique blend of the
exotic and the ancient.
The ancient city of Perge was the capital of the Pamphylia region, now the
province of Antalya on the southwestern Mediterranean coast of Turkey. It... (more)
