Joyful greetings to you! No matter what holiday you are celebrating, we are grateful and thankful for your readership and hope that you’re enjoying a day focused on family and fun.

This week – here are the great posts that might have slipped by you with the shortened work week, school week or even spring break.

This next week, we look forward to Peter delving further into debunking cultural myths; Heather giving us great tips to turn up the volume of our brand; Henrieta posing a though provoking question to us about our past and our future; Elinor sharing with us valuable insights in turning road blocks into sales and Roger giving us a practical ‘how to’ in auditing our personal brand building.

And, here’s your Bootstrapping Buzz 2-Minute Audio Tip for this week – Becoming Faster and Better at Developing Your Network

Plus, there’s so much more this week. We look forward to your feedback and comments.
