Snow. Snow? Really?

This week has been one of travel and work--lots of work. I've decided to redo one of my large products, and that takes a huge amount of effort and time. (There are times I wish there were others in my office besides just me!)

Added to the mix was the fact that we had a solid reminder that winter is on the way. Even though you might think that we should consider having autumn before winter comes, we had our first snowstorm of the season this past Tuesday. Very little accumulation and what there was soon melted, but it was simply another in-your-face reminder of what is to come.

Anyway, I hope your week has gone well, and that you enjoy the tips in this week's newsletter.
