I hope you had a great weekend and that your week is off to a good start. It has been an incredibly busy couple of weeks for me with quite a few virtual client keynotes, the Future Ready program, and a highly individualized future advisory series I’ve been doing with one of my favorite Fortune 100 companies.
But I made it, and so did you. And Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner (which given the state of local retail, should be massive for ecommerce). I know I for one am looking forward to Christmas and the holiday season. It has been a tough year for all of us and we could all use a little cheer.
That said, we both know you’re hear for the insights and best of content I’ve read over the last week. So, let’s get to it.
