Thoughts from a Spa


I just love spas. I have my best thoughts in spas and any strategic conversation that happens in spas is generally ten times more valuable that whatever is discussed in a boardroom. And this spa in Texas is one of my favorites.


I should say, right at the outset, that this particular spa is no longer one of ill-repute. But it used to be. The new owners say this house was a sister casino to The Chicken Ranch, the longest running brothel in USA and inspiration for the musical “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”


But that was ancient history. The house is now owned by Tony and Felicity Dale who transformed it into a livable home and ministry base for House2House magazine. It has a great spa, a big pool . . . and an unusually large number of BEDROOMS for guests. Like me when I am passing through.
