It’s been quite a week. It started slowly, with little going on, but as the week progressed, the workload intensified, as did the contact with clients. I’m still trying to get to an agreement with one client, but in the meantime another contact from my magazine editor days got in touch. Seems I’ll be working with him and his group regularly. I’m excited about it. He’s a great person and one of those business people you enjoy watching build and grow business. He’s succeeded because he knows what he’s doing. I want to be around that kind of person. And I just plain like the guy.
Today I’m recovering from a very busy yesterday and trying to finish up some loose ends while nursing away what I suspect is a cold. So instead of my usual drivel, I wanted to share what I think are some of the best posts I’ve seen this week. To be honest, these are some of the best posts ever, starting first with our own Jenn Mattern (notice how I “possess” her in a non-creepy way – she’s just great).
Enjoy your Friday and your weekend, everyone!
