"Homeward Bound By Way of Paris"

Published August 2017

After three wonderful weeks in Italy, I am headed home via a four-hour pit-stop in Paris. This is my first trip here to France and due to overcast skies, I haven't seen anything of interest other than this ultra-modern, massive airport. Since I have an 18 hour journey back to Minnesota, I thought I'd take this opportunity to update you on a few things.

First and foremost, if you missed the prior blog or just hadn't sent the request yet, if you are an insurance agent who has ever used our insurance CE classes or believe you might register for our courses at some point in the future, I encourage you to friend me on Facebook.

Many of the fabulous insurance agents are part of our friendly network and it's so wonderful to stay connected outside of your bi-annual or annual insurance CE needs. Even if you decide to not go that route, I made a number of my Facebook posts while traveling this summer public. The links are below. I invite you to travel along with me by checking out some of my reflections from the various cities in Italy I traveled this summer.

Even more important than any of that, as soon as I get home, I am going to hit the ground running bringing you the BEST CE classes with all the energy, enthusiasm and excitement that you have come to expect from Bryan Ventures. Coming up in August, we have live insurance continuing education classes in ALEXANDRIA, BEMIDJI, and LA CROSSE, and then in the months that follow, I'll be teaching classes in DULUTH, DETROIT LAKES, FOREST LAKE, MANKATO, ST. CLOUD, ROCHESTER, BURNSVILLE, and GRANITE FALLS. I encourage you to reserve a seat now as we've had an increased interest in live classroom insurance CE lately.

It's going to be CRAZY busy for the remainder of this year because we are also creating ALL NEW live insurance CE classes for 2018 and 2019. In fact, if I wrap up this blog fast enough, I am going to start reviewing the content for these courses. I plan to put a new twist on some material we've instructed previously and I'm really looking forward to pulling all of that together. As always, if you have any suggestions of material you'd like instructed, please just email it to me. We always want to ensure the insurance course material is of value to you.

If you hadn't heard yet, we plan to introduce video insurance CE courses in our online learning centers. Yes, these classes were recorded live in classroom and will be published as ONLINE INSURANCE CONTINUING EDUCATION to give you several learning options with Bryan Ventures, Inc. Super excited about all of that, but more excited to connect with you so send me that FACEBOOK FRIEND REQUEST AND consider joining us in one of our upcoming LIVE CLASSROOM INSURANCE CE COURSES so we can personally chat about lots of ideas, concepts, and experiences work and personally related.

As noted above, I made a few of my Facebook vacation posts public from my Italian adventure so you can just view what you might which even if you don't FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK. :D
