Happy Thanksgiving Announcements..

Happy Thanksgiving 2019!

    Hey, before we get too busy with our family, friends, food, and football tomorrow, I just wanted to take a quick break from all this cooking & cleaning to say a couple quick things…


    As we give thanks for the many blessings we have in our lives for Thanksgiving, I want you to know that YOU (and all my students, both present and past) are HIGH on my list of the things & people I’m truly grateful to have in my life.
And not just for Thanksgiving, but for every day of the year.

So…what are you doing for Thanksgiving? Going anywhere? Hosting the party at your house? Who are you looking forward to seeing? Who do you wish would (or wouldn’t lol) come?

And do you have any special Thanksgiving or holiday recipes to share? Don’t be shy!

This year, we’re hosting a group of about 16-20 people (as usual), and they’re all my fiance’s family (as usual).
It seems like no matter HOW much food we get, they always manage to eat. Every. Bite. 
It reminds me of that scene from “The Hobbit…”

    In a minute, I’ve got to get back to making a few of my special dishes.
This year, I’m making my highly-requested ceviche, the salmon, and the potato salad, in addition to assisting with the turkey. That’s right – your favorite mentor can cook, too!

    Can you believe a few guests we have coming said that they don’t like turkey? If only I could un-invite some people lol! (can’t do it… in-laws. Uugh.)

    So whatever you have going on, I hope you enjoy it to the MAX!
Be sure to take a moment to go around the table and have everyone share what they’re thankful for this year.

    Then gorge yourself & pass out in a turkey-induced coma in front of the game. I hear that’s a good thing.

    Just be sure to be careful about talking politics at the table. I hear that’s a bad thing (especially if they watch CNN hahaha). 

Thank you for being a part of my life. I truly DO appreciate YOU!

From my family to yours: Happy Thanksgiving!


With a big hug,
Tony Pearl

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Today is the day that we proudly honor our great Veterans who have served our country.

If you or anyone in your family have served in the military, police, or first responders,
I would like to say a huge Thank You so much for your service!

Your sacrifices help to keep our country free and preserve our sacred liberties…
Liberties that too many people take for granted.

If you haven’t served our country, today is a great day to show your appreciation for those who have.

So let us show our support for the brave men and women who have fought and protected us.

There are so many ways to show appreciation to our Veterans, and here are some ideas:

  • Donate to a charity that supports Veterans and their families.
  • Call or send a message to a loved one who has served to let
    them know that you are thinking of them.
  • If you have a business & have an opening, strongly consider hiring a VET for the job!
    I can personally tell you from experience that these guys & gals are the best out there.
  • Take the time to shake the hand of someone in uniform, and tell them that you appreciate them.

Maybe if we do a few of these things on a regular basis, we can begin to bring more light into the world and help cut down on the number of  veteran suicides that are committed every day.

As a proud member of a military family (I also had Marine Corps and Navy training that I tremendously enjoyed), I take this mission personally.

Please take a moment to look around and see the beauty and gifts
in our world. I know this business can be challenging, but it’s so important to take the time to appreciate the things we have.

Thank you for being a part of my world, and thank you for allowing ME to serve YOU!!

Your Mentor, 

Tony Pearl
