Sorry, if This Offends You...
I've been pondering writing this for a while. As you probably know, most of my commentaries touch on real world industry stories, personal experiences and general business topics. In this rant, I'm going to share some of my thoughts on the current state of the promotional products industry. Sorry if this offends you. 
I love our industry. There are many great forward thinking leaders who care about making a positive difference. Our trade Association PPAI is recognizing changes in the marketplace, and working diligently on our behalf addressing important issues that affect our livelihoods.

I say OUR industry, because any industry is made of people. Suppliers, distributors, service providers, sales people, multi-line reps, associations, and networking groups are our lifeblood. People are what make the industry great. We are blessed to have some amazing people doing good work.
