During this, let's call it, unusual time, I have been working more remotely than in the office (no surprise there) and as such I've made a few observations.
Living in a condo I don't think about lawn care much other to remark on how nice our neighborhood always looks. One of my neighbors and friend maintains the flower beds for our building and we have a lawn service. Recently, I've learned that lawn care happens daily and I do mean daily, including Sundays. Each morning, I hear a lawnmower, not always on the same property of course. Now it is obvious why the neighborhood always looks so nice.
This Memorial Day is different than what we're used to but no less important. Memorial Day became an official holiday in 1968 and was once known as Decoration Day. It is a day to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military.

HubSpot CTO Dharmesh Shah gave a Keynote Address at #INBOUND2017 and in it he recounted meeting Elon Musk (I'm a big fan!). During that meeting he talked about growing your business by aligning your vectors. I admit I had to read this a couple of times to fully comprehend. Halfway through the second read, a lightbulb went off. I get it. Sum of parts, aligned vectors, everyone rowing the same way is necessary for growth. Mr. Shah has shared both a video and the slides of his keynote address on LinkedIn in a post called, What Elon Musk Taught Me About Growing a Business. Check it out, what do you think?

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.
To the men and women who served so gallantly.
To those who continue to serve, may this day find you well, safe and in good spirits knowing you are appreciated.
