January 26, 2007 - Feeling Confident and Being Positive I have such great things in the works right now, and I'm feeling more positive than I have in a long time. It's good to feel this way! Do you ever feel sometimes that you've worked so hard for so long with few results, and you just feel like things are never going to get better? That's how I was feeling for awhile! And when things started to turn around over the past month, I almost couldn't believe it! It takes some time to realize that it's okay to feel good and positive, and that things are really looking up. First of all, I did close on my Vegas condo at Panorama Towers, and I can start moving in any day now. I do have to figure out if I'm going to Colorado to oversee the move of my furniture, which I think might be a good idea, as I'm afraid of it getting damaged. I'm quite excited to have four magazine covers coming out in the coming months! I'm going to be on the cover of Woman Poker Player, Total Poker, Pro Poker, and Flush. Wow, huh? I'm very flattered and anxious to see the covers and the articles. Second, I've signed a deal with an international sports agent, Stephen Pearson, to handle my PR and endorsement deals. He is located in London, but we communicate a lot by e-mail and telephone, and things are already moving along very quickly. He has amazing vision for my career, going outside of the poker world and treating poker like the international sport that it is becoming. Our goals are the same, and it's awesome to be working with someone who thinks along the same lines as me. I wish I could mention some of the things that we're working on, but as soon as contracts are signed, I'll be posting the news here first. Stay tuned! On another note, I'm a little concerned about this NETeller news that some former executives from the company have been arrested and charged with money laundering conspiracy. What?! This is getting crazy! All we want to do is play poker, right? Why does the government have to try to take that away from us? I don't understand! I hope to talk with some friends and understand more about what is going on with NETeller, but for now, they've decided not to accept deposits from U.S. customers. It's truly ridiculous that these people have been arrested, but I guess we'll have to see how it plays out. Maybe poker will suck out on the river and send the U.S. government out of the game! Hee hee! Well, I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know what's going on in my life. Take care, and I'll talk to you again soon!
