If we could sum up 2017 with one word, it would be GRATITUDE.

The end of the year is always a time of reflection, a time to look back at all the great experiences, the new & old relationships, take stock in those opportunities that created growth and finally set new goals and new words that define our futures. At Site Selection Services, we couldn't be more grateful for the partnerships and relationships that made us who we are TODAY....

It's never been about a hotel room or another ballroom.....  It's always been about creating a relationship that stretches so far beyond that..... Our hope is that in some small way, we helped your company, your organization or even just you, make some sort of positive change in the world or leave an unforgettable mark on the future..... So thank you to our clients, our suppliers and our friends for your support, your business but mostly your trust in US. YOU make our jobs everlasting fun and an ever changing amazing JOURNEY!!!  

Before the rush of the end-of-year hustle takes over completely, we wanted to leave you with a few things we are thankful for this year & some inspiring words to live by as you make your way into 2018:

A heart full of LOVE and Gratitude! A mind full of integrity and curiosity. A soul full of peace and generosity. This is a Rich Life. A sincere thank you to all our friends and partners in our everyday lives. Thank you for helping us grow. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be grateful. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018. Cheers, Scott 

Each Day I am grateful to wake up, to be surrounded by a healthy loving family and work with colleagues, industry partners and clients that I not only respect, but call true friends. It makes "work" feel a whole lot less like "work".... Additionally, I am blessed to be in an industry that affords meeting planners opportunities that few other industries can compare to and I realize after every site inspection, every educational FAM trip or amazing event that I am lucky. Truly TRULY Lucky! My life is richer in so many ways because of my career and I want to wish all my industry friends and clients a very happy and prosperous New Year! The best is yet to come, Kim   

Thank you 2017 for the opportunity to be exactly Here. Exactly Now. With a wonderful family and circle of friends in all corners of the world. I’m thankful to be inspired by my work/my passions every day and to be surrounded by the most intelligent, driven, hard-working partners, clients friends & people I’ve ever met. I’m grateful and humbled by others who challenge me to be a better person and to continue to find true growth every day. Cheers to a fabulous new year, Cami

What's In Your travel Bag.......?

What's in Your Travel Bag?.jpg

As I was headed to Los Angeles last week for a whirlwind of hotel and venue sites in less than 36 hours, I thought to myself, what do I really need.....? I don’t know about you but when I travel, I want to take less and less these days. Gone are the days when I would check a suitcase, lug a jam packed “carry on bag” and finally carry a heavy purse full of I don’t know what….. Plus, it's like paying for the cost of an additional flight to just get your bags on the plane, right!?! Although it’s taken me several years to figure this out, I’ve become very strategic on what and how much I pack. Nowadays, it’s a practical (yet still trendy & stylish) satchel and a simple carry on suitcase. Ladies, who needs seven pairs of shoes for two days anyway? If it doesn’t fit, it’s not goin…..

Here are a few of my favorite things that never miss the “cut” or that I have my eye on for my next trip;

~    HOBO Travel Satchel; I love this bag. The color is on point and matches just about any outfit. It’s light, has a section for my cell phone, little pockets for business cards (I’m always rummaging through the bottomless pit of my bag to find my never to be found card case), is large enough to carry my iPad or laptop and can be thrown over the shoulder or carried on the arm. It’s definitely making the Christmas list this year…. 

~    Bath & Body Works Lip Gloss; I’m not a big lip liner, lipstick kind of gal. As long as I have my gloss, I’m good to go. A little shine & all is fine.... :)  

~    Battery Pack; I never leave home without it. How many times have you been out all day conducting site visits, answering emails on your device inbetween meetings and I kid you not by noon, the “LOW Battery” alert comes on….? The extra battery pack is a must on every trip but I’m not going to lie, it';s just one more thing to carry. So, I’ve got my eye on this cell phone case by mophie that acts as a battery charger too….. A-A-Amazing, right?

~    Peppermint Essential Oil roller; roll a little of this on your wrists or on the back of your neck and your energized and “happy” to keep up for the rest your busy afternoon.

~    Day Planner / Notebook; I’m a pen and paper kind of gal. I like to write things down and cross them off the list when they’re done so my day planner and favorite pen never get left behind. I'm looking at adding this Deluxe Monthly Planner by Erin Condren to my Santa Christmas list too!! 

~    Laptop & My Favorite Book; the plane always makes for a great place to catch up on work or unplug and focus on a little PD time with your book of choice (personal development).... 

Do you have a favorite travel bag or items that never miss the trip?
