EntreLeadership Cattle Drive

It’s time for me to leave The EntreLeadership Tucson event and head to St George, Florida. I can say that this has been an absolutely amazing week. The people, the stories, the beauty…all incredible.

One of the coolest parts was going on a cattle drive/rodeo/bar b que/live band/dancing excursion. It was an absolute blast! It made me miss Tahoe. Well, all but the cattle drive. Along the way I met some new friends.

One of my favorites was Isaac. His heart is the biggest thing about him! And he can dance in his chair like nobody’s business!!

As we rode on the bus from the ranch, every few minutes Isaac would look over at me and wait for me to look at him and wave. Melted my heart!

I’m gonna miss this group, this place, and I already miss the beauty.

  1. First off, Thank GOODNESS for a new post. I was starting to get the shakes, becoming irritable and losing sleep at night…(by the way, what are the symptoms of addiction withdrawals? Just curious…)
    Second, Isaac sounds totally awesome! Must be one of the coolest perks of the job, meeting such awesome people all over the country!
    Third, if you ever want to go on a cattle drive, let me know. I grew up on a cattle ranch and my parents still own it…could work something out ūüėČ

    1. ¬†@Skropp¬†Hahaha….I think that’s an acceptable addiction!!! And yes, Isaac was an amazing perk. I wanted to steal him but I don’t know how far I would have gotten. ūüôā
       
      You may get a call on that cattle drive someday my friend! Where is it? 

        1. @ChrisLoCurto @JoelFortner On the Sieverkropp Ranch it’s not uncommon to finish off the day with a BBQ…or we could go out and call in and shoot some coyotes…

        1. ¬†@Laura Johnson¬† not really! ¬† But I have to admit, I did check my inbox a couple of times this week and think something was wrong or Chris inadvertently got banished to the “junk folder”!

        1. @ChrisLoCurto It’s like I’ve told you before, the great info you give, as well as the awesome follow up insight from all the other commenters helps me not dwell on the crap of life and focus on making my future better…and THAT is priceless

        2. @lilykreitinger @skottydog And now we’re all friends there too… What a clever way to get us all following each other…he’s always a step ahead!

        3. ¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬† I spent the week constantly refreshing your home page from various locations expecting a post. I’m guessing I contributed to vastly improving your SEO ranking by making it appear you had a huge spike in traffic, so I need an address to send the invoice for my services please. ūüôā

        4. ¬†@Jonathan Henry I think it was in January when Chris didn’t post for like a week or something.¬† I had a couple of people ask me if he was okay!!!¬† You know you’re building a solid platform when………..

        5. ¬†@Jonathan Henry¬†¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†LOL Jonathan – I was so refreshing too there for a few days before I realized that there was an Entre event going on. LOL That’s too funny.

        6. ¬†@lilykreitinger¬†¬†@Skropp¬†¬†@skottydog¬†LOL LILY!!! That’s not true….I started commenting on your blog cus you write great stuff too! (Actually figured out how to get your posts to my inbox…hehe)¬†

  2. Trying to figure out the connection between an Arizona cattle-drive/BBQ/rodeo/live band/dance and Tahoe. Hmmm, must be the open country away from the congestion of the East coast.  Bet there are more twitches per capita on the right side of the Mississippi than on the left side.

      1. @ChrisLoCurto @cabinart Man I LOVE NorCal! One of my good friends lives in Sac and I went to Tahoe for spring break once ūüôā Beautiful!! There’s some true cowboys in NorCal!

      2. ¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†@Skropp¬†Lots of cowboys in Central Calif. especially in the foothills where I am. Had annual roping event 2 weeks ago, and then a rodeo this weekend, competing for people’s attendance at the art fair where I’ll have a booth. Or maybe the rodeo types wouldn’t be inclined to attend the art festival. (I learned about the smell of beer at the Woodlake Rodeo back in jr. high when the band would march in the parade and then get sunburned to death watching the rodeo afterward.)

  3. Sounds like it was an incredible week! Seems like you really connected with Isaac, based on what you said, and that great photo of you two!
    You were sorely missed this week by all of us here at your “home away from home”! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. ¬†@skottydog¬†That is good to hear!! I missed you guys a ton. I just didn’t have the time in the day. I’m so glad you guys kept the conversation going so well. Thank you!!

      1. @ChrisLoCurto yeah, I would imagine that wouldn’t have gone over too well…you checking Twitter feeds, and commenting on your blog while up on the stage or in small group sessions! Ha ha

        1. ¬†@Skropp¬†¬†@skottydog @ChrisLoCurto¬†I think’s there potential here!¬† Do a live feed of a session via Ustream or Youtube.¬† Perhaps the lesson is on marketing with a focus on building a platform and the benefits of doing so for your business.¬† This way there’s a lesson for those who paid to be at Entre and it’s not just a free lesson for those who watch or us commenters.¬† Ustream has a a chat feature so people can comment, ask questions or just chat during the lesson.¬† Good tactic to promote Entre, too. What do you think, Chris?!!!

        2. ¬†@JoelFortner¬†¬†@Skropp¬†¬†@skottydog¬†¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†Hey, we like FREE stuff! Next thing you know he’s going to charge us for commenting!
           

        3. ¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†¬†@lilykreitinger¬†I know!! She sent it to me ūüôā ¬†Too bad livefyre doesn’t have the capability to post pictures… ūüėČ

        4. ¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†¬†@lilykreitingerI know!! She sent it to me ūüôā ¬†Too bad livefyre doesn’t have the capability to post pictures… ūüėČ

        5.  @JoelFortner Actually, I used to participate in a cool live video to twitter Q&A session in an online small business community. The community would post questions live via Twitter and a chat service, and the moderator would answer right then and there. It was really cool! Maybe that could be an upgrade to the live chat you guys do?? 

    2. @skottydog He was missed definitely. I like Lily’s idea of a chat room on the site so we can have discussions even when Chris is off saving the world one leader at a time….

        1. @ChrisLoCurto Look at it from a completely selfish point of view… Think of all the blog post ideas our convos will suggest to you ūüôā

        2. @ChrisLoCurto Of course then some of us may do the same thing and we’ll end up with like 10 blog posts on the same subject in the same week, haha

        3. ¬†@lilykreitinger¬†¬†@JoelFortner¬†¬†@ChrisLoCurto¬†¬†@Skropp¬† Chris, I don’t think you installed the plugin correctly. ¬†Looks like Joel is still able to comment! ¬†ha ha!!! ¬†:^D

        1. ¬†@skottydog¬†¬†@Skropp¬†And I hope wooden bedroom furniture, custom desk plates, dentistmanchester and ipod accessories don’t make the top 10 commentator list for May! HA HA HA!!!
           

  4. Sounds like a blast! BBQ is ALWAYS good ūüôā
    Isaac is too cute in that picture! Why does he have a chair? ‚Ķif it’s okay to ask‚Ķ
    Hope a trip like that is some day in my future! ūüôā

  5. Hey! Look who’s back!!¬† So glad that we were part of EntreLeadership through you sharing your pics.¬† We missed you tons!¬† Isaac is such an adorable little man.¬† It’s so great to know that the EntreLeadership community keeps growing and inspiring leaders.¬† We need to bring EntreLeadership to Minnesota!

  6. You have a little over three days until your blog takes over Nashville for the Act at the Speed of Opportunity event. Now that you have cattle driving experience, we can not only occupy the front row, but we can wonder off from the heard and graze in our chairs and otherwise act like livestock, right? @ChrisLoCurto , Audience Wrangler. 

    1. @Jonathan Henry @ChrisLoCurto Better be careful with this cowboy imagery…we may start demanding that you wear Wranglers and a Stetson…just sayin
