How are you making your tours better?
I love museums. Which would seem like an odd thing to admit to while writing a blog to the health and wellness community, but the reality is we have a lot in common with museums. No, I’m not talking about the Soviet-era weight machine you have in the back that should be in a museum. No, what we have in common with museums is actually quite a bit more . . .esoteric. I don’t know what that word means exactly but read more to find out what we have in common with museums.

So if I asked you right now, what’s your thing, do you know what you’d say? Don’t answer just yet…

What do the numbers 2, 7, 26, and 49, 336 have in common?
If you know the answer to this, then I will be very impressed. In fact there is only one person on earth that knows the answer…as far I know. Seems like a random series of numbers. And more importantly what does this have to do with running your business? This may get profound…but answers to these questions and more will appear if you just continue reading…
