Jane and I are hanging out here at the Millennium Hotel here in downtown New York City, getting ready to go see Jersey Boys on Tuesday night. We got to New York on Monday and it’s been go, go, go since we got off the plane. We had a private dinner cruise, walked around the city, ate like kings and queens and hung out with a bunch of our good friends.

We’ve spent time in the Big Apple with Adam and Beth Katz, Alex and Ginny Abuyuan, Bill and Diane Lampe, Alex and Heather Fitzgerald and their new baby Kate, Mike and Michelle Alleman, Mike and Noelle Lewantowicz, Stephen and Hollie Davies and Jeremy and Amy Patton.

I wish you could have been here with us!

I wanted to tell you it’s time to swim because the wave is coming. Think about this, we just got back from a trip-of-a-lifetime in Australia. Mutual of Omaha announced us that we are the No. 1 provider of life insurance nationwide. Crazy talk! You and your team, me and my team are no. 1 with MOO and they are only 13 percent of what we do.

Is that not crazy?

Mutual of Omaha took us to Australia with three or four other couples and there will be more couples going to our next trip somewhere next year. Now, they are paying for part of this New York trip and part of the trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Check out the video at the bottom of this blog! By the way, there are 120 couples and 240 agents – too many to name them all here – in Punta Cana right now! We flew down today!

Where are we gonna go next? We’ve got Aruba coming up and then the Cayman Islands.

I wanted to remind you that you need to be Team Builder. You’ve got to get other people to Team Builder too, because we have a big deal coming up at our corporate office. It’s a massive training session on June 15-16 at our campus. We’re going to have something special on the 15th, but the 16th is going to be crazy training and we are going to teach people how to become board members on our agent map. You’ve got to get on the map and use the map to see where you are NOW!

Then, we have our leadership event in July and there are very few tickets left for our meal plan. Go to to get signed up. We need people to get that July event on their calendars.

Hey, I just wanted to let you know how excited I am about everything going on at National Agents Alliance. It’s time to invest because the time is right, and it’s all hands on deck. Now is the time! This is not a drill. Hammer down, see you June 16th. Hope you are here with me in Punta Cana! If you are not, I will see you soon.

    Fired up. I’m getting paid on policies for the first time, so it’s about that time for me to start gettin’ crazy with it.

    It is nice to see God guiding you both and your teams to make a difference for the next generation. May He always load your heart’s with love, compassion, and the mindset to help fellow people in our country and abroad. In Erwin, NC you both left your imprints for success. it is mine and John’s desire that you stay focused on the Biblical picture of your given graces. Think of you often as I look at memory photos of you in our backyard. Tony died peacefully in 2012, age 49…one year older than dad. John retired year ago with 32 yr from state…we now reside in retirement community. Welll, enough humdrum for you hot pacesetters. Godspeed, Sandy and John Kopanski
