Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July

The 4th of July is here!  

 
The day where America celebrates it's hard won independence.  It’s a day where patriotism, family and being neighborly all come together culminating into a big explosion, both figuratively and literally, of red, white, and blue along with food, festivals, and fireworks.  You cannot help but get caught up in the spirit of the day.  As you gather with family and friends, I encourage you to take a moment to acknowledge those who fought so that we have the freedoms we enjoy; and for those who continue to fight so that others can also.  
 
Happy Fourth of July, may it find you happy, healthy and safe!

So long 2013...

So long 2013...
Holiday lights, snow tipped trees and gleeful squeals, all the signs of the end of another year.  If you're like me you look around and wonder, where did the year go?!
 
2013 has been a wonderful year and the beginning of 2014 is shaping up to be just as nice.  The year started slow but boy did it speed up!  As you know, I focus on start-up, small and non-profit businesses and organizations.  It is so exciting for me to see how excited they are as the solutions we've worked so hard, and sometimes fought about, come to life.  While this year I've met many wonderful new people, I haven't forgotten about my "old" clients, they are just as fun as they include me in their new adventures.  I call them "old" not because of their age, as they are all young in heart and spirit, but merely as an indication of the number of years that I've had the opportunity to work with them.  I'm looking forward to 2014 so much so that I keep checking the calendar to see if it's here yet.
 
My clients cover a range of services, If you need something, "I've got a guy", as the saying goes.  With such a diverse client base, I've learned so much about so many things, my brain hurts sometimes :-)  Yet, I want more.  As I look at the magic eight ball, magic mirror, crystal ball or just stare up into the sky, hoping for signs of what's in store for the coming year, I take a moment to reflect on how I got to where I am and those who came along for the ride.  
 
THANK YOU to everyone who has and continues to support me and Danico, since our inception in 2007.  Back then Danico was just a passing thought.  I appreciate you sticking around.  All you newcomers, just hold on, it's going to be a great ride.  Oh and to those reading this blog who I've not yet had the pleasure of meeting - thanks for reading.  Don't be shy, drop a line and let me know how you think it's going.
 
With that I'm outta here, except for...
       May the new year bring you health, happiness and a heck of a lot of success!

A Crystal Ball

A Crystal Ball

Fun Fact Friday

In a few days 2013 will come to a close.  With that is the tradition of the ball drop in New York City.  Did you know that a ball has been dropped every year since 1907 except for during World War II in 1942 and 1943 when there was a "dim-out".  You can find out more facts about the Waterford Crystal ball which drops each year at 11:59 pm in front of a crowd of millions, probably more like billions by going to: Times Square Ball

Holiday Shepherds' Crook

Holiday Shepherds' Crook

Fun Fact Friday

The first candy cane dates back to 1670 in Germany. According to holiday lore, a choirmaster distributed sugar sticks bent into the shape of a shepherds’ crook to quiet his young singers during Christmas services. Today more than 1.76 billion candy canes are made for the holidays, enough to stretch from Santa Claus, Indiana, to North Pole, Alaska, and back again 32 times.

I heard rumors that Saturday, August 10th is National Lazy Day.  Curious me, I searched the internet and landed on the National Whatever Day website and they had an entry for National Lazy Day.  Looks like I am kicking up my feet, how about you?

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

OMG, Dec 31st is almost here!  I can't thank you enough for hanging out with us!   As we wrap up this year's deliverables and squeeze in client meetings before the holidays, we look forward to spending some time with friends and family.  This year was a good year and 2013 is shaping up to be even better.  We've said it before, and we can't say it enough, THANK YOU to our clients, past, present and future (*wink*).  THANK YOU to our great advisors (we know how shy you are so I won't name names). THANK YOU to our friends and family who put up with us, we could not have done it without your love and support.

Before we get too sappy here, reminding you, if you have not already done so, follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with the latest on us and our clients. 
 
Oh and before I forget...keep the feedback coming! 
 
Take care, Happy Holidays and see you in 2013!
