Up in the Air and D&E Casino Parallels



The 2009 movie Up In the Air, starring George Clooney, was brought to my attention earlier today. The film possesses some interesting parallels to our company D&E Casino Services.




First of which the main character shares the surname Bingham. Ryan Bingham is the films protagonist, who travels around America firing employees for various companies. Unlike the Binghams I know( Ellie, Dan, Jennifer, and myself), Ryan Bingham does not value relationships and connections in life. Which is a major point of contrast within out company. Whereas Ryan tries to minimize personal connections, our company does our best to maximize personalization and increase relationships amongst independent contractors and with clients. We believe that a healthy company is full-bodied; possessing a brain, body, and HEART!




Our company, like Ryan, is accustomed to non-stop travel. in the last 11 days we have visited many Sheratons and other venues in the cities of:




Cerritos, Tarzana, Universal City, Fontana, Huntington Beach, Culver City, Irvine, Temecula, and more...




Company Jr. Partner, Jennifer Bingham, is currently in Belize vacationing with key independent contractor and her boyfriend Ken Miranda. We are excited that she has the chance to refresh and bring home some Belizian sugar.




My point in writing this piece is to reemphasize the message imparted by Up In the Air. There is more to life than work, work, work. If you spend your whole life running away from relationships and commitments, then what do you have except a bare wall and empty refrigerator. Enjoy life and be merry!
