Traditionally, property owners are allowed to burn small amounts of yard debris annually, from October 1 to April 30. Outdoor burning in metro Atlanta is prohibited annually from the beginning of May to the end of September. There are certain days within the outdoor burning period that are designated as "no burn" days. This is mainly because of unexpected changes in weather and atmospheric conditions. The decision to allow burning is based on information obtained from the National Weather Service and the Georgia Forestry Commission. If a Red Flag Warning is issued by the National Weather Service, it means that a combination of winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures are creating a rapid fire growth potential. Therefore, a Red Flag Warning constitutes a "no burn" designation for the day. Anyone considering an outdoor burn should check the Gwinnett Fire Community Risk Reduction (CRR) - Fire Marshal's website at www.gwinnettfiremarshal.com or call the Burn Information Line at 678.518.4979. All information is updated daily by 9:00am.

I love to travel, but there is no place like home. Last week after my Wednesday show I had to go jump on a plane to Vegas to meet my daughter and the baby. My trip started out a little rocky, but it ended up being a great trip and I really enjoyed myself. One of the things I'm really happy about is that I still got a chance to do the show on that following Thursday. I did it from my hotel room at 8am Vegas time. This is the power of technology and podcasting when you put them together. I was able to still share what was happening around Gwinnett County even though I was in Vegas.
For those of you who are entrepreneurs you have to sometimes think outside of the box when it comes to marketing your business and make the necessary adjustments. Here I was in Vegas doing my show and sharing it from the other side of the U.S. I met a few really nice people who I shared the show with along with my parent company and picked up a new client who was a limo driver all because I was talking about what I do.
So I mixed business with pleasure while I was on this trip. I did an escape room for the first time and now I'm hooked. That was so challenging to me, but I love a good challenge. I didn't know what to expect and it was crazy, but so much fun. I look at the escape room like business. Sometimes you have to try something new and step outside of your comfort zone. This activity was good for me for a couple of reasons. One it gave me a chance to focus on something else and have some fun and second, it pushed me outside of my comfort zone.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you. If you ever get a chance to go to Vegas, check out Red Rock it is beautiful.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
