    Hi All,

    With X-mas approaching, thought I'd share what we are upto.

    Holiday for us starts around 11th till the new year!

    I will be working through the book Be by Keith Abraham (as recommended by our mentor) and looking to read Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard, Man's search for himself by Rollo May to name a few. I love reading psychology/books with spiritual depth to them so want to get back into those!

    For me, like always, it will be focus and working on my visions for 2016 and beyond.

    @monalisa and my birthday falls during holidays. One of our school friends has become a commercial baker (whose a dentist also....very talented) will be baking the cake for us. I will post a photo when we have it!

    We'd also be preparing for the move to our place we've been building. Don't move till Feb or so but lots to do between now and then! Really excited about it....it's great to reward ourselves for non stop focus the last 15 years since we came to this beautiful country!

    What are your plans?

    It'll be a slightly strange but exciting time for us. We've both given up work so will be on holiday but not sure when the holiday will end or what comes next?!

    We're planning a road trip (Gippsland and Sapphire Coast) but will probably be home in our little village for Christmas. If it's not as festive as we thought then there's always a big renovation at ppor to get on with.

    My reading isn't as deep as yours Ms Ali but I get more than enough of that in my paid career. I'm going for Branson and Trump to give me the kick ass courage I need to keep going with no support in my immediate environment. Will be researching my next deal in the midst of all of that.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to make my to-do list :)

    1. Sort out last six months of paper work - Sold one and bought 4. Things are slowly getting out of hand.
    2. Spend some quality time with kids - They are not getting any younger :(
    3. Decide what we want to do with our investment activity - Feels a little over commited on properies.
    4. Prepare for new work - Moving to a different industry. Need to read up on industry jargons and what they do in my line of work.

    Happy b'day in advance @MsAli and @monalisa :)

    Be is great. I worked through it not long ago. You'll get a lot from the process. If you ever have the chance to see Keith live, jump on it. He's amazing in the flesh.

    As for me, I'll be working plenty, reading, catching up with family, reflecting on 2015 and planning 2016.

    Oh, and enjoying my new (temporary) home: The Gold Coast.

    What day is your birthday girls?
    I would love all my vacant properties to be leased for christmas.
    We always just have functions at our house and have people drop in throughout the day.

    Hi Xenia
    It's on the 21st of December. Love it that it's during the break.

    Our mum starts prep early December for it :)

    Traditionally we've gotten the Lindt St Moritz cake every year. Absolutely love it. However changed the tradition last year when the Sydney siege happened. This time it's a big one so there will be a theme to go with it :).

    No party organised though...yet.

    I'm sure you guys are here to "share" share your birthday with each other and with the Christmas break, share the love and your stories - see even the date you came into the world with fits in :)

    Number 3 is the best number :)

    Starting on twin's birthday!
    Good thing about starting just before holiday period is that you can get paid for holidays from both places if you play your cards right :)

    Moving from media to insurance.
    Happy to discuss further via PM.

    CANNOT wait for the hols. Only a few weeks but will be renovating non-stop. Hope to sleep-in a bit and maybe even read a book. Maybe I'll like it so much that I'll forget to go back to work...

    Going to my brother and SIL's place that they just bought last month. Only problem is it's way out in the sticks, so have to catch a train out there.

    My dad's long time girlfriend will also be there, so it will be good to catch up with her, because she's well awesome. Haven't seen/spoken to her for almost ten years!

    Looking forward to seeing my niece and nephew, who I don't get to see anywhere near as much as I would like to.

    At the stage, plan is to drive up the north coast to coffs harbour. Stay there for couple of days and travel around the area.
