Hi Cindy,

There's lots of  talk about the economy and its direction next year. Whether you think it is a recession or just a bit of inflation, this is when you want to increase your marketing budget because it will take more advertising and marketing to get the same number of prospects you've gotten in the past. Two articles below address the economy and what you should do. Good reads to plan for the near future.


If you are hiring Gen Z workers, one article will shed light on how to reach them. It may not be the way you think.


Have a good Labor Day! We all deserve it. :)
