Superhero Tuesday Times

Elite 11 Portfolio, Dalia Flores Contreras - ILD

December 15, 2015

Happy Tuesday Superheroes!

I hope this email finds you well. There are only 4 more days until a much needed winter break...hang in there you're almost there! Below you will find information from last week's portfolio meeting shared with you. Click here to access a copy of the PPT presentation I used.

I hope you had a great weekend and that you're getting out there to enjoy some of the fun activities around town such as ice skating or seeing the beautiful lights!

I truly wish you the merriest of winter breaks. I hope you are able to rest, spend some quality time with your family, and indulge in doing something you love. You've been giving 110% and burning the candle from both ends--you deserve some R&R.

I look forward to seeing you next year and hitting the ground running to finish this race strong!!
