My second home.
Monday of this week, I met my great friend and colleague, Jim Banks, at Gatwick airport and we flew to Raleigh in North Carolina where my head office is. Jim and I have a lot of business going on together and I’m supporting him with the opening of his new office in Hong Kong in May. So there’s lots to do.
I love to come to my second home here in Raleigh. It’s so great to be in gorgeous sunny weather. And when I walk through the hallowed portal that is the home of internet marketing…
And I make a point of fraternising with the enemy too. My closest geographical competitor is legendary industry pundit Andy Beal. And I love Andy and his wonderful wife Sheila as I do my own family. So it was fantastic to pop around to the new Chez Beal (a mansion of considerable beauty, I have to say) and have dinner out on the patio.
Of course, Andy invited Jim around too.
And a wonderful night was had by all. Sheila cooked the most fabulous dinner. Andy kept the wine flowing. And we all indulged in a little marsh mallow toasting to finish. Thanks to Andy and Sheila for such a warm welcome and such an entertaining evening.
