I am breaking into my regularly scheduled blog post to tell you that this winter sucks, and I’m suffering from BWD — beach withdrawal disorder.

As you read this, I am stuck at home because Raleigh had a little snow and some ice. My travel is delayed. People are cranky. My cats wonder why I have a sour look on my face.

Why am I not stuck in Grand Cayman?

And I have to do a webinar today at 3PM. If my luck turns around — and when I use the word luck, I’m using it loosely — I will be in Dallas to do the webinar from an Admirals Club. Then I’ll head over to a board meeting.

If things don’t go well, I’ll be doing the webinar from Raleigh and figuring out how to get to Dallas and then Chicago for the weekend.

Not exhausting and stupid. Nope. I could work in a Chinese coal mine. Instead I’m a working writer who’s slogging in HR until I figure things out.

But mostly I’m trying to figure out how the heck to get back to the Caribbean. I have events in Omaha, New York, New Jersey, and a whole bunch of cold places in Q1-Q215. This is such bullshit. I’m doing this year wrong, and it’s only February.

So let me ask you something. What if I organized an LFR conference in the Caribbean and gave you a whole bunch of HRCI strategic certification credits? Would your company send you? What if I had a great series of speakers who could truly help transform your HR department? What if you could also get spa treatments or play golf as part of the conference package?

I’m trying to make this happen. All I know is that next year, my winter travel schedule will be 100% different.


  1. I am assuming the conference will include “strategic” beach sessions and I would definitely do my best to attend. 🙂

  2. If you organized an LFR conference in the Caribbean and gave me a whole bunch of certification credits I would find a way to be there! Especially in dead ass winter.
