From Inside Big Brother Sequester

by Chelsea Gheesling

Special Delivery.

On July 18th I received a mysterious package on the front porch. After opening it, I realized it was filled with notes written by Dan while he was sequestered in a hotel before he entered the Big Brother House.

Inside the Mystery Box. 

The first thing I came across were his notes on a book called It’s Your Ship: Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy.

Dan read this book for an obvious reason; to make sure he was mentally prepared to coach people inside the BB House. So, while reading the book Dan took notes on how he would apply the information to his Big Brother Strategy.

I have scanned his notes to share with you all. I know it’s a little archaic but I have to get creative when I’m communicating with my husband through snail mail.

    This is great Chelsea. Thanks for sharing. It’s obvious Dan is an amazing person and coach outside the game of BB. I love his positive attitude. If he were my coach I don’t see how I could possibly fail.

    Thank you so much. I have an appeals hearing for and increase for my VA disability that has been ongoing for 8 years. Even the President has reviewed this and has said there is no reason it should not have already been approved but the government is the government so I have been jumping through there hoops for years and was just about ready to blow my cool when I read this. You, and Dan saved me. These notes you unknowingly put up just gave me so much power and insight that I will be okay at the hearing August 20. I feel better than I have in a year and I have to thank you! I can do this now! I believe again! Thanks sweetie!
