(A belated) Happy New Financial Year! Here’s hoping that 2019/20 brings you much enjoyment & success, both in and outside of your work.
BIG news at our end – we’ve signed up with Brian Keen & Franchise Simply* and are implementing their ‘step-by-step’ model to build Dify Social as a franchise business over the next 6-9 months. Plenty to do, but we’re excited about the journey ahead!
We also appreciate the opportunity to share this with you: our business customers, collaborative partners, referral & networking friends, together with what’s happening or upcoming in our ‘glocal social’ world (see below).
If you have any questions or feedback, ‘dm’ me on social, or give a call.
Yours socially, Steve
