I Won The ZO Live My Life Program and I'm Going To New York!

If you follow along regularly you will know that I work full time in search marketing as an SEO and Content Account Manager for a company called Performics (previously FirstClick Consulting). Performics is part of a larger digital group called ZenithOptimedia.

Each year the group runs a program called “Live My Life“, essentially it is an exchange program where you are sent to another office (they have offices in 74 countries worldwide) to work for a short time and learn more about the company and our overseas markets. All expenses of the trip are paid for in including flights, accommodation and visiting some top landmarks!

Anyway, long story short… I applied for the program a few months ago and I found out this week I was the winner for our Australian offices and I’ll be heading off to New York next year! Cue song…

I get to choose the months that I go, I am thinking I’ll head off in June/July so I’m super excited to start planning this adventure! After I have worked in the office for a few weeks I’ll be travelling around The States for a few weeks, I’m planning to visit New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. All you travellers out there does this sound like a good itinerary? Should I be adding some more “must visit” places to my list?

I knew December was going to be a good month, what a perfect early Christmas present!
