Welcome, today we are starting a new process of adding content more regularly in the form of Mark’s Observations. Right here on the landing page we will present a variety of opinions ranging from thoughts on the economy to effectively building corporate strategy to trends in products and distribution. We will not limit ourselves at the outset, simply venture to provide you with thoughtful and useful content which will keep you coming back for more. We encourage your participation, here with your comments and by sharing this content through social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Let us know what you think, that you appreciate our work, and what we can do differently to serve you better.
