Beautiful day volunteering for Tipsy Tatas at their annual Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Golf Outing at Southers Marsh Golf Clubin Plymouth, MA. Everything was wonderful from the venue to the golfers, volunteers, sponsors, speakers, food, auction items and
raffle prizes! Here are a few photos from the event.

“Private jets. Private flight. Extraordinary,” he said. “There’s nothing that changes quality of life when you travel as much as I do, as that.”
In fact, he was persuaded to give private flights a try after a 13-hour lost-luggage, delayed-flight ordeal between San Diego and Aspen, where he was visiting a billionaire friend for Christmas. He told Torabi how his friend explained the value of bypassing commercial flights:
I said, “Dude, I’m not a billionaire like you.” He goes, “You don’t have to be a billionaire. You have to start thinking that you’re worth it.”
He said, “But, I’m gonna tell you something, if you just take a budget and you just say, ‘For the year I’m gonna spend this, but I can go when I want, where I want, wherever I want, in the middle of the night, with my own food. I can sleep in the middle of the night ’cause I’ve got a bed on the plane.'”
He said, “It will change your productivity more than anything on earth.” And it sounded insane. So he said, “Start with a small amount. Pick a number, and just say you’re gonna charter. Don’t be stupid and buy a jet. That doesn’t make any sense.” He goes, “Just go charter.”

Health may not be the first thing you consider when making travel plans for business or pleasure, but it is probably one of the most
important things you should consider. What if you get sick the night before a big presentation or on vacation? And while the risk is low, what if there is a true medical emergency? Do you know what to do?
According to Dr. Dan Carlin, CEO and Lead Physician of WorldClinic, the major issues that put you at risk are dramatically increased in a time sensitive health crisis. “The Golden Hour represents the time
delay between the onset of a crisis and the start of effective
treatment. The longer care is delayed during the Golden Hour, the greater the opportunity for something serious to turn truly
dangerous or deadly,” he advises. Dr. Carlin suggests a travel plan of action and intelligence.
Know where the reliable doctors and hospitals are. Resources include the local consulate or embassy, travel assistance number on the back of your credit card, or your hotel concierge–call them to find out how they have dealt with emergencies in the past. Try to verify the information; there should be concordance between resources.
Carry a prescription medical kit and know how to use it. This is your frontline defense against the Golden Hour.
If you are traveling abroad, acquire the knowledge and a make plan. WorldClinic Members receive a travel brief that outlines all local risks, health resources and other pertinent information for each
destination. WorldClinic members have direct access to the on call ER physician who has secure access to their medical records and through the use of the Prescription Medical Kit can diagnose and treat via telemedicine. Medevac is included in membership.
