As we enter 2019 and watch 2018 pass by through our rearview mirror it is a good time to sit back and reflect on the year. With the beginning of each new year, we start off on a new. A reinvigorated spirit. We think about what we need to do better in our business. What we need to do more of, less of, differently, and keep the same. Just like in our personal lives we set new year resolutions to get healthy, exercise, quit a bad habit, etc.
Once again, we are approaching the Holiday Season. I swear, it comes faster with each passing year. It is interesting; when you are young, time seems to stand still. You are always waiting for that next big milestone: starting school, becoming a Teenager, starting high school, summer breaks, getting your drivers license, graduating from high school, starting college and finally graduating from College.

Even longer ago, people would have to keep calling to get a hold of you.
A few weeks ago the news media, and social media, were all a buzz about the Yanni and Laurel debate. Who are these people? Well, Yanni is a Jazz musician, but that isn’t who we are talking about. Laurel was part of a comedy duo in the 1920’s and 1930’s, but we are not talking about him either. So, what was up with Yanni and Laurel and what was all the fuss about?
Last month’s blog was Social Media…We Love to Hate It. This month’s Blog relates to Social Media as well. It is a daily part of our lives anymore.
I apologize for being on hiatus from my blogs for so long. It wasn’t intentional. After the new year, it has been one thing after another. Working full-time, working on my business, spending time with my daughter and other obligations, the time just flies by. I can’t believe we are already in April.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. I don’t know about you, but 2017 has just flown by. They seem to get faster with each passing year.
