Week In Review: November 18th - 22nd

Tyler Olson: Sales Executive

Its been a busy fall so far and I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! I'm happy to say that the Sales Team has had a great past few months. We've been busy with setting appointments, attending thorough building surveys, implementing some fun marketing projects, and closing deals.

On a personal front, in addition to work with City Wide, I've been busy with hunting, racing and traveling...

For hunting so far this year, the land that Mitch (our Director of Operations) and I hunt has been slow. However, I have been lucky enough to take one deer so far, a medium sized 6 point buck.  Hopefully we will get a few more deer off the land to fill up our freezers by the end of the year.

This past fall, I also started a new form of bicycle racing called cyclecross.  Essentially, it is a mix between road biking, mountain biking, and cross country running. It is a very exciting sport with lots of mud and crashes. I am also gearing up for the cross country ski season which I've gotten into pretty seriously over the past three years. My goal this year is to race a time good enough to make the “Elite Wave” next year in the American Birkibeiner Ski Race-- which is the largest ski race in North America.

Currently today, I am in Austin, Texas visiting my wife’s sister and their family. We are having fun with our 2.5 year old niece, and almost 1 year old nephew. Lots of trips to the park! We will be back in time to enjoy Thanksgiving in Minnesota with our families back home. I am very excited for the holiday season coming up and what 2014 has in store for us at City Wide of Minnesota.
