I can't even believe it!
I've been selected as one of five finalists by American Way Magazine as this year's Road Warrior MVP. Each year, American Way Magazine (the magazine of American Airlines) has a search to crown someone as a Road Warrior MVP. The entry required filling out a questionairre, answering an essay question, and coming up with a cute "Top 10" list, among other things as well (you can read my entry by following the link at the end of this post).
I just couldn't believe it when my phone rang and it was American Way Magazine informing me that I had been selected as a top 5 finalist from over 10,000 entries. Sweet!
As most of you already know, I do quite a bit of traveling while speaking and appearing at seminars, trade shows, and conferences. What you might not know about me is that for an entire year, while working at Adobe, I was living in San Jose, CA while my wife and family lived at home in Long Island, NY. And each week, I'd fly out to the west coast to work, then fly home for the weekend with the family. Thank goodness that's over (I am now firmly settled back east where I belong), but let's just say I know what it means to be a road warrior :)
In any case, where as in years past American Way Magazine chose their own Road Warrior winner, this year they are doing the "American Idol" thing and opening it up to online voting to determine who of the top 5 finalists will be crowned this year's Road Warrior MVP.
