I am wrapping up a hectic week before the Christmas weekend as I am sure many of you are. Traffic, long lines, on-hold music, out-of-stock icons typically create some frustration for me this time of year. This year has been different. I find myself smiling when I see the parking lots full, stores clearing out their inventory and even the airlines packed to capacity. These are some of the early signs that things just might be getting better for most of us and I like the feeling.
If we are honest, we must admit that the last several years have been tough. Tougher than I have experienced in my lifetime. Many of you reading this are still out of work, or you might find yourself in this situation in the months ahead. The increased activity this Christmas season should give you hope as well. Business is beginning to rumble a bit. Hiring is picking up.
Hopefully I have been able to provide you insight and introductions to a few web tools that will help you thrive during the coming year. Let me know how I can help. I value your thoughts and your input is always welcome.
