Top 10 Things to do in Dallas – June 2013

Greetings everyone and happy June! By the time you receive this email I should be on my way to Cambodia for an adventure and journey of a lifetime.

It’s been crazy busy around here getting ready for the trip where I’ll be shooting video for a documentary film being produced by Still Motion Originals out of Portland. I’ll also be accompanying my client Stephanie Henry on a project to help end the exploitation of young children. I will be reporting in as often as I can on Facebook and my travel blog at 2sistersinparis so follow these sites so you can follow us on our journey.

I’m always amazed at how opportunities come our way. Usually through our networking or the relationships that we are building. Sometimes it’s just shear Serendipity! I find it similar to great marketing – when we stay true to ourselves and focused on our purpose, the whole universe works in tandem to bring us desirable results.

My team will be holding down the fort while I’m out of the country so don’t hesitate to contact them if you have any marketing needs or questions. In the meantime I wish you all a wonderful start to the summer and prosperous business activities! Remember to walk in love and stay in awareness and give whenever you find an opportunity to give. Now go get out there and make it happen!

Love and peace,
Sandy Hibbard
CEO, Lyric Marketing & Design
