Hello from Room 106 of the Newport Beach Hotel in sandy Newport Beach, CA!

Newport Beach is a little less than an hour’s drive away from LA, which is where the Wonder Women of the Web seminar is being held this weekend.

However, I’m staying in Newport Beach because my former colleague and very good friend, David DiNucci, has recently moved down here from the Bay Area for another Google position, and is celebrating his birthday VIP style with his closest friends.

This is my first trip to Newport Beach, and it’s absolutely beautiful here!

It’s my 9th vacation location in less than 2 months (wouldn’t have been able to do that if I had kept my day job!), and I am having a complete blast…

Even on vacation, however, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for business partnerships and opportunities – and there’s no better place to do it than here!

You see, I am involved in some private niches as well that would be perfect for the Entertainment industry, and at some of the parties I went to, I met actors, models, and people in the industry who have connections to nightclub owners and party promoters.

Hollywood is going to be tremendously HUGE for these projects!

I can’t elaborate on the projects I’m talking about just yet, but you will get a taste of just some of them soon enough…

Yes, it has been a fun and productive vacation – most of my vacations usually are.

But alas, the last few days have come and gone quickly, and it’s time again to go home.

I will continue my travels for the next few weeks though, so be sure to come back often, as I will blog often (usually at 5 to 10 day intervals…at least for the next several weeks) for more updates on my upcoming trips to Orlando, New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Orlando again, and beyond…
