I loved going to Tamra's birthday party on the yacht in Newport Harbor. Anytime I am on a boat, I am happy. I think it was a great idea to have her party this way and had a great time. I wasn't surprised that Tamra was upset turning 40. Now that I am in my mid-40s, I've realized it's just a number and really not that big of a deal after all.
To clarify, I am NOT jealous of Tamra's watch. I think it's a beautiful watch, and someday I will get one. There is actually an incentive this year with the one of the companies that I write business for, and if I achieve the goal, I will receive a Rolex watch. I am hopeful I can do this on my own. If not, I am sure I will end up buying one myself this year. I love Donn and that comment I made to Jeana about wishing I was single was not appropriate. I was upset with Donn that weekend because I wished he would take more time to spend with me. We had both been traveling a lot turning the summer separately, and it put a strain on our marriage.
In other news, I have recently hired a business success coach who will be helping me with expanding my business and educating people on how to move to their next level of success. For some of you, this will mean learning to move from being an employee to a business owner. On my Web site, I will have a free audio download available of my "10 Secrets I Wish I Had Known When I Got Started," which will be available in the next few weeks. You will also have access to terrific interviews with small business owners from around the country who offer their insights into business and life success. We're calling it "LIFE with Vicki & Friends." L.I.F.E. is short for Living Inspired and Fully Engaged. I can't wait for you to meet all of my business friends; their stories and valuable business insights are truly inspiring. If you wish, log onto www.vickigunvalson.com to enroll in my newsletter so we can stay in contact with you.
Expect to receive your first issue in the next few weeks. Live Inspired! Also, please check out our retail Web site for the housewives' "favorite things" at www.therealocbrand.com.
