I flew from Austin early Friday morning and arrived into Sioux Falls, South Dakota around 12:30pm. One of my best friends, who I have known for 30 years, Mike Dunlap picked me up at the airport and we went right to his house, I needed a nap!
After a short nap, I spent the rest of the afternoon working on my talk for the American Family Insurance Banquet that night.
Kent Larson is the District Manager for American Family Insurance for S.E. South Dakota and I met Kent at a American Family Insurance retreat I was speaking at out in Oregon a couple of years ago.
Kent is a great guy and I know why he and the agents in his district do such an awesome job, Kent is one enthusiastic guy! I attended a nice social hour and met most of the agents that were attending the banquet. They had their awards presentation, a wonderful meal and then my talk!
Kent said speak as long as you want! Usually I speak for 45 minutes to an hour, but this time for a hour and 15 minutes!It went by very quickly and they all seemed to really enjoy my talk. (at least I sure hope so!)
The next morning out for a quick 6 mile run in the snow and then back on the plane home for Austin.
Thanks Kent and American Family Insurance for a wonderful visit!
