Grandfather of America (US) -- Happy Thanksgiving Week for those celebrating this US holiday. Brad Smart, the father of Topgrading (the only hiring method that garners a 90% success rate) suggests in his blog this week that the Pilgrims recruited an "A" player, William Bradford, to lead their Plymouth Colony. Take five minutes and read his e-newsletter to your children, providing them an historical perspective on Thanksgiving not taught in school.
Vacation Planning -- this is the time of the year when families start thinking about their plans for next summer (Northern Hemisphere). One option -- join my family (four children 14, 12, 7, and 3) for a multi-sport (biking, hiking, canoeing) tour of the Italian island paradise of Sardegna the week of July 4. The tour will be led by Gazelles' fan Lauren Hefferon, owner of Italy's top bike touring company Ciclismo Classico. Lauren's family will be along for the journey as well. Our last two trips have been our favorite vacation experiences. Here's a link to more info.
