December 2007

Cover_2007_December This month’s issue is our annual Woman’s Issue. Every year this is one of (if not THE) most popular issue. We have received an incredible variety and number of articles for this issue (it could even be a record!)

With 85% of networkers being women, we’re excited to feature different aspects of women in the business. Take your time and review each article. Make it a point to read one each day and let us know what you think.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
