Saddle up boys, we’re going to the Wild West! This one is for all my adventure-seekers ready to take on the Rocky Mountains. I mean, honestly, when’s the last time you went hatchet throwing? And the best part is no one will be able to tell if in your head the target happens to resemble that client who always seems to have “just one more edit.” Although it might get you one step closer to sales purgatory. Perhaps you don’t think you can trust Donna with a hatchet, I mean after the cake-cutting incident at Herald’s retirement party I don’t blame you. There’s plenty of more tamed options; choose between horse-drawn wagon rides, paddleboard yoga, game room fun, and more!
