Day 1: Catch a Surprise Inside
January 6 is probably one of my favorite days of the year. It’s the day bakeries across New Orleans throw open their doors and welcome the start of the Mardi Gras season. Yes, folks, it’s time for king cakes. If you’ve been in New Orleans for Carnival season, or if you’re lucky enough to have a friend that has mailed you one of these colorful cakes, there’s a pretty good chance that yes, there is a plastic baby that comes with your cake. Like king cakes, conferences can hide a surprise inside if you know how to spot one. Attend a gathering this year that will open your mind and provide you with new ideas and thoughts for your marketing plan that may surprise everyone! Brand ManageCamp is always on my calendar, and now they’ve expanded to add Brand ManageCamp University to give you access to keynote-level marketers year-round. Of course, if you are building a career in casino marketing, I hope you will consider Casino Marketing Boot Camp.

Day 3: Catch a Bullet Journal
Day 4: Catch a Productivity Hack
Day 5: Catch a New Skill
Learn a new skill. Every year, I find myself looking at bags of parade throws caught over two weeks, and I’m always missing something I coveted. It’s because I haven’t learned the skills others have to catch those elusive prizes. Commit to learning a new skill this year – whether it’s how to catch a shoe at Muses, how to cook, or how to hand-letter (which was on my 2019 list).
Check out some of our favorite ways to train for a new skill.
