Thinking Global Acting Local Contest Winner Announced The big day has arrived to announce the winner of the "Where In The World Is Carra Riley?" contest.

Glocal # 9   Indivisible:  Affiliates and Real Estate Agents How is the marketing meeting working for you?  Are you "unified" to meet the demands of today's market and consumer needs? Thinking Global, Acting Local, going “glocal.” The  global dots are still connecting on a local level  as I have landed in the United States of America and am happy to be on solid ground after an amazing voyage around the world! The International flags were flying at the meeting room of the North Metro Denver Realtor Association  this past Thursday in Broomfield, Colorado. The flags are reminders of the International Real Estate connection with the CIPS designation through the National Association of REALTORS®. The reticulation activation system in my brain has “global” ideas at the front of my consciousne...

Where are you supposed to be?  Thinking Global, Acting Local, going "glocal" with the "Real Reason Rule™."                                    Do you appreciate the concept that everything happens for a reason? I am a firm believer in this philosophy and know all our experiences are directed from a higher source. When going through something, many times it might not be until you get in the middle of it do you see the "real reason" something transpired. Our global lesson proved this theory showing how the "Real Reason Rule™" works. My husband Tom and I have been on a journey around the world and in the middle of the South China Sea we got a call from family letting us know that his 92 year old mother had been admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. Serious thoughts of guilt began to rise...

Glocal #8 Thinking Global, Acting Local “The Taj Rule ™”                                              The Taj Mahal has been considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. I felt my breath get short as my eyes continued on a journey down the reflecting pool to see white marble structure I had only read about my entire life. The Taj Mahal is widely measured as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and stands as a symbol of eternal love. It is situated on the right bank of river Yamuna. Words fall short in trying to describe the feeling that is experienced with the beauty of the architecture. The building is actually a mausoleum built by Shah Jahan who was grief-stricken after the death of Mumtaz Mahal, his third wife. She died delivering their 14th child at the age of 39. T...

 Glocal Lesson #7  What is up with your orange?                                                  Welcome to Day one on the voyage for “Connecting The Dots Around The World.” “How can this be?” you may be asking as today is actually the 52nd day of travel on the MV Explorer.  Mental transformation proceeds on different paths with each individual and it has taken me this much time to process the information and share it in a way that makes sense and will have a positive impact as we “Think Global and Act Local”  going “Glocal.”  To prepare for a mid-voyage review I took a step back to review where we came from and compare where we are, setting the first day stage: “Anxious whispers filled the room in the student union as voyagers anticipated the key note address for the Spring 2011 voyage...

Glocal #6 Lesson of the Omelets Part 2 of 2 Part 1 of 2 #5 Glocal Lesson Of The Omelets                                          For the rest of the story….not having a camera available for the “photo op” at the omelet bar in Nassau led me to re-create the situation at a later date to have digital images for the “glocal” moment. While staying in the rain forest on the Amazon above Manaus, Brazil the opportunity arose to capture the “lesson of the omelet" in the Amazon Eco Park at the breakfast buffet. The photo of the omelet with the man behind possibly shows the sentiment of some of the residents along with the local actions reported in a newspaper article. You can be the judge of the lesson of the lesson of the omelet in Manaus, Brazil. It has taken me some time to publish this post a...

Glocal #5 Lesson of the Omelets Part 1 of 2 Glocal #6 Lesson of the Omelets Part 2 of 2 “Thinking Global Acting Local” is the theme of the Spring 2011 Semester at Sea voyage around the world.  The Term "Glocal" is a hybrid word coming from the combination of taking global ideas to a local level. We are 30 days into the voyage now and I am starting to connect the dots around the world without emotions.  Saying there is an adjustment to traveling on a ship with 700 other people is an understatement.  The diverse group of learners from all over the world has been an interesting study of human nature.   The lessons are still the lessons and I was so happy to learn the Lesson of the rainforest in Dominica and the 18 Mile Rule™ in Brazil.  Could it be we have about completed 9 of the 18 miles...

Glocal #4 "The 18 Mile Rule™" One of the great mysteries of the rain forest resides six miles east of Manaus, Brazil on the Amazon River.   This phenomenon of physics brings a global lesson to possibly every local organization, group and individual who look at it and think about the higher meaning of this transformational occurrence. “The 18 Mile Rule™” at the mixing of the waters represents  a message to help any community or individual looking to combine ideas and resources. Eighteen miles along the Amazon River the dark waters of the Rio Negro tumbling from Colombia lay side by side with the latte colored water of the Solimoes River stemming from Peru before they mix into one turbulent entity flowing to the Atlantic. The Amazon River has recently been deemed the longest and widest ri...

Glocal #3 Brazil, Coffee, Certified Fair Trade "Thinking Global Acting Local" lessons continue as we journey up the Amazon River. Confronting The Coffee Crises: On our way to Brazil, the largest coffee exporter in the world, we had the opportunity to listen to Lee Gross explain his Masters research on small scale coffee production in the Dominican Republic. We are traveling down the Amazon River on the ML Explorer with the Spring 2011 Semester At Sea voyage learning new concepts from the voyage theme: Thinking Globally to Acting Locally on a daily basis. The information Lee shared was really an awakening for me to really embrace the concept of supporting  “Certified Fair Trade” products. I must admit I have been on the outside looking in with really understanding the importance of using...

Where in the world is Dominica? We are in the Caribbean at an island called Dominica at the port of Rouseau on Domingo. Frankly speaking, I had never heard of the island of Dominica prior to this trip around the world on Semester At Sea so everything we learned was new to us! Dominica named a, “Best Trip of 2011″ 20 Best Trips of 2011 — National Geographic. Looking for an out-of-the oridinary destination for your next vacation? Check out these 20 top trips, hand-picked by National Geographic Traveler editors as the best of 2011. The name Dominica came from Christopher Columbus when he re-discovered this Island on Domingo. It was Sunday so the name stayed with a minor twist from the original Spanish word for Sunday.  We are here on Domingo or Sunday and absolutely everything is closed ex...

Thinking Globally Acting Locally is the theme of the Spring 2011 Semester at Sea Voyage. The participants are learning about the new term "glocal."  Taking the lessons we are learning from around the globe and applying the message to our local community is taking us "glocal." Traveling around the world with a group of 605 college students, 66 lifelong learners and 70 TOP EDUCATORS has built up HIGH expectations of a “transformational” voyage. Speaking with new people every day at meal time creates opportunities to learn and share with one another like none other we have ever experienced.  Taking classes, observing in the Field  Programs, listening to speakers who are on the ship to share how they are making a difference in the world one  person at at time and explaining how they accompl...

Glocal #1 Thinking Global Acting Local It's Carra Riley here live from Nassau, Bahamas on my voyage around the world! The vision for me in this trip is to “Connect The Dots Around The World.” I had no preconceived idea of how any of the dots would start to connect but they have already started to come together. Your comments and input will be invaluable as I post on my blog with a stream of consciousness writing along with just sharing what I am thinking and the observations I am making from exactly what I am experiencing. The “bar of expectation” for many businesses and services is a moving target today and we have had our experience with this two times in the first day of travel.  As the world economy is changing the fight for the discretionary dollar is actually going to the street w...

The Beginning: Where In The World Is Carra Riley? It’s 4 a.m. in the morning….. la..la…la.. Elton John sings on in my mind.  My husband Tom and I are in the airport in Charlotte, North Carolina in Charlotte Douglas International Airport . Carra writing first blog post for SAS The reality of the journey of a lifetime became crystal clear as we took off from Phoenix, Arizona just after midnight, January 9, 2011. We are on our way to Nassau, Bahamas to embark on the MV Explorer with the Spring 2011 Semester At Sea voyage. As we taxied down the runway and the lift of the engines took us high above the desert development in the dark of the night, the vision of our world and our expectations of this life changing adventure began to form in my thoughts. I could see the engineered design of the...
