Hi How was your summer? Not sure if you, like me, are finding that the seasons seem to pass much faster nowadays? Apparently (you can Google it!) it has to do with the fact that our early years are full of first-time events e.g. first date, first job, first holiday, first born etc., compared to the more repetitive events we tend to do in later life. So, before the year gets away from us, let’s plan to do and do, loads of new things to make time pass slower!
To that end, welcome to this, the first edition of Dify eNews for 2019 – news shared with you: our business customers, collaborative partners, referral & networking friends, with an update on what’s happening or upcoming in our connected social world. If you have any questions or feedback, please hit reply to this email, ‘dm’ me on social, or give a call.
Yours socially, Steve
