No need to gamble–You have it all!

© Comstock Images/Getty Images/Comstock/Thinkstock Many years ago, I had just started a job with a new company, when the manager of our group announced one day with great excitement that we were all scheduled for a one-week training trip to … Las Vegas!

The excitement fizzled out for me immediately. As someone who had never been game for gaming, I had no interest in going to Vegas. In fact, I dreaded it. Though I’d never been in a casino before, I felt that I might be deeply saddened by what I saw as the artificial allurements of gambling: greed, ostentatious materialism, deception, and the hypnotic atmosphere of a false sense of happiness.
