Another last second invite....I am heading up to the Catskill Mountains in NY (Hunter and Windham) tonight. Free place to stay at Windham if you can make it - house sleeps at least 10 not including floor space - we already have a few people going. Will ski tomorrow and Thursday. We are thankfully getting missed in Philly but the NY mountains should get a foot (or two) and already have snow from the storm on the ground. It is less than a four hour ride from center city.....
Last week's last second trip ended up with a group of nine at Blue Mountain for a fun day/night on the hill.
Someone asked me recently how I have time to head skiing with my other responsibilities. My response: As a business owner, you can choose which 80 hours per week you work. So....if you are thinking of selling/buying a home in the Greater Philly area, I hope you will talk to me as I promise you I put in plenty of hours and you will be in good hands....
And lastly, I have not firmed up my Super Bowl plans but I think I will be attending the Green Legion Super Bowl Party (#20). For $40, six hours of top shelf alcohol, beer, and food plus the free block pool with prizes that have real value included. Maybe see you there.... - Mark

3) JOB FOR ANIMAL LOVERS
Do you love animals? Do you enjoy traveling? We are looking for articulate, energetic, trustworthy people who want to make at least $500-$2,000 a week (literally!) , plus a signing bonus of up to $1000 if you can learn a 15 minute sales script. This is NOT just a commission based job.
You will be traveling with our teams to events all around the Northeast each week and educating people. Basically, your main job would be showing small animals to customers and answering all their questions. All expenses are paid during travel and we use company vans etc.
Most events are Fri-Mon. Our Teams usually leave on Thursday afternoons of each week (depending on the driving distance) - and then return late on Monday evening. This is definitely full time.
While at an event, all Team Members work together helping each other setup and tear down the display... stock merchandise... and also care for the animals. It's a TRUE "team" effort that is both demanding - and fun. We provide excellent, thorough training on everything. All you need to do is be committed to learning FAST - and helping out the Team wherever you're needed.
-You must be able to be on the road (usually Thursday-Monday).
-You must be a motivated fast learner.
-You must be an honest person of good character.
-You must like animals.
We’re looking for 2 candidates who can start training ASAP. If you’re even remotely interested, or would like to know more about the job, please email me with a brief description of yourself, why you think you'd be good at this job, and contact info. Don’t just send me your resume, I don't need a resume! If you send me your resume and nothing else I won't read it because it proves to me that you didn't read this posting fully. It would be very helpful if you type your email address in the body of the email (you'll get extra points for following instructions if you do). If you do as I've asked of you in this posting I will reply to your email with a detailed description of the job etc.
