February News
It is hard to believe that we are six weeks into the new year already. February is a month in which the days are noticeably longer, and we have a few warm days mixed in. I optimistically interpret it to be a signal that spring is on the horizon.

This month our first article discusses the importance of treating a business as a business; or maybe you only have a hobby? Next, for a little fun, we rank the super bowl commercials and to close we have a very interesting article on "superconnectors".

As stated in our January newsletter we are starting a Q&A segment later this month. Thank you to those that have submitted questions.

I hope that 2018 is a good year for you so far. This year we have been able to refer a lot of business to our network and find good solutions for our clients and contacts. I look for this trend to continue in the months to come.

Regards,

Sharon
