The better, more fluid and seamless the connections, the greater the basis for success.
What a year. It’s a stretch to remember day-to-day business before the economic meltdown of fall 2008. A new shifting landscape is emerging - economic, social, business. Change is in the air.
Change breeds opportunity. The successful will be the most alert, quick to adapt and take advantage of new prospects. Business as usual is not an option.
It’s the dead of winter with no end in sight to cold, short days and dark, longer nights. Suddenly a breath of whimsy, caprice and romance stirs the air with a ray of hope, a glimpse of spring just around the corner - Valentine’s Day!
What a perfect occasion for an unexpected gift. The traditional flowers, cards and chocolates have their charm. But why not think outside the box? Consider a glittering necklace or bracelet with a heart motif. Pink pearls capture the first blush of budding romance. Rich red rubies reflect the romance of deep passion. Or diamonds - what could be more romantic than the promise of forever love?
