When is SPAM a New Year’s Card?

Check this out — I was about to delete this SPAM, and then I discovered it’s a message from a major program manager at CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL — guess the old categories don’t hold up any more. . . . I’m getting a headache thinking about it . . . . I don’t think my management manual [DILBERT] has anything about “How to use your spouse’s corporate Xmas card list to market your new on-line distance learning course.”I can hardly wait for next year’s edition, when I’m sure I will have the opportunity to sign up for ice-skating lessons from the darling Ariana.——————Date: Wed, 9 Jan 2008 11:02:50 -0500 (EST)From: Neel Inamdar <inamdar1@gmail.com> To: bshrodinger@irf.org Subject: Have a Great 2008 !You’re receiving this email because of your relationship with Neel Inamdar. lease confirm your continued interest in receiving email from us.You may unsubscribe if you no longer wish to receive our emails.Neel Inamdar and Anne LoehrDear Bruce,Who would have thought 2007 would have passed so quickly?

We promise we’ll do the same!Something to Think About for 2008For a little perspective about the choices you want to make for 2008, we invite you to visit the Story of Stuff. It’s a powerful piece on the challenges we face in this new age. The video is very thought-provoking!An Update from NeelI’m still enjoying mywork as the Senior Advisor for Ecotourism with Conservation International (CI) in Washington, DC. My main role is identifying and working with hospitality companies interested in supporting conservation initiatives for a win-win solution. Madagascar is our current focus, but CI has active programs around the world.As many of you know, I like doing many things at once, so I recently became involved with a small startup company that advises hotels and resorts on how to improve their sustainability, save money and be more green. Feel free to visit www.sustainability-dna.com for more information.I’m still involved in various investment projects, most recently in New Hampshire, where we are building unique ski-on/ski-off condo’s next to the Mt. Sunappee Resort at Mountain Reach Who knows? Maybe I’ll even learn to ski someday and enjoy this resort!An Update from AnneMy first business book, “A Manager’s Guide to Coaching: Simple and Effective Ways to Get the Best Out of Your Employees” will be published in March 2008, which is also very exciting. Co-authored with Brian Emerson, this book will help managers and entrepreneurs successfully coach themselves and others to success. We’ve already received some great endorsements and I’m lining up book signing events for the spring, so feel free to contact me if you’d like a book signing in your area.Since so many people have asked me how we managed to get a book from idea to publisher in just six months, I decided to start a 10-week book publishing course, helping new and aspiring authors save time and money in their own publishing quest. If you know anyone who wants to be published, feel free to send them this newsletter. I’d be happy to help them in any way I can!An Update from ArianaAriana will be celebrating her 3rd birthday in January! Hard to believe! She loves ice skating, is learning to scooter on her new Christmas present, has a steel trap mind and does not hesitate to voice her opinion! She keeps us on our toes!If you no longer want to receive our news, please just select the appropriate “unsubscribe” mechanism below.We will be sorry to see you go, but totally understand your decision!All the best for 2008!Neel Inamdar & Anne LoehrThis email was sent to bpotter@irf.org, by inamdar1@gmail.comNeel Inamdar & Anne Loehr | 11654 Plaza America Drive | Suite 354 | Reston | VA | 20190
