Business Briefcase - November 30, 2016

Welcome to the final Briefcase of November, folks.

We’re down to the last month of 2016, which is pretty crazy unless you’re one of those people where time feels like it moves at the same speed, all the time.

I’m not one of them, but the good news is I get to crack open my new personal calendar notebook. My 2017 year begins with December 2016, apparently. I’m looking at it like I’m getting 13 months for the price of 12, which subsequently comes out to $0, since I didn’t pay for the one I’m using.

Business Briefcase - November 23, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I hope everyone has a great holiday lined up for tomorrow.

I also wish everyone a safe Black Friday. It’s a pretty intense day, and if you don’t believe me, check out some of the videos on YouTube.

Business Briefcase: November 16, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone!

I hope everyone has purchased stock in air conditioning companies, because it looks like it’s never going to be cool again. If we’re going to be treated to a wonderful heat wave for the rest of the year, it wouldn’t hurt to make a buck or two, right?

I do hear it’s supposed to be nice starting Thursday, but I’m going to keep my fingers crossed. And continuously knock on wood. And carry a lucky rabbit’s foot around.

Business Briefcase - November 9, 2016

Hello, readers, and welcome to the latest edition of the Business Briefcase!

I’m your host, Briefcase Host, and we’ll start by giving a hearty thanks to veterans young and old who’ve served the country.

Thank yous are nice, but it’s pretty hard to do anything tangible with them, so here are some more freebie offers happening Friday for active duty military personnel and veterans.

Business Briefcase: November 2, 2016

How’s it going, Business Briefcase readers?

I trust everything is fine. We should all be operating at close to 100 percent with two full days to recover from the Halloween candy hangover.

Two days after Halloween also marks the end of the first two weeks of Christmas decorations. I’ve seen the displays — stores, you can’t hide from me.

Business Briefcase - October 26, 2016

Welcome, Business Briefcase readers! Before you lies the pre-Halloween Briefcase edition.

I thought about decorating the place up, but there’s no ghost, bat or skeleton on my keyboard that will produce any cool looking images. I’d have to try to make them out of the letter and number options I have, much like the various smiley-face figures that used to grace our text messages. We don’t even do that anymore, thanks to emojis. But anyway, I decided against it, mostly because every one I tried looked like I was battling major brain cramps.

Business Briefcase - October 19, 2016

It’s Business Briefcase time again, folks.

It’s another beautiful fall day in the Valley! Just kidding, it’s been in the “lovely” 90s for far too long now. If it’s grossly hot again, feel free to use a permanent marker to blot out the first sentence of this paragraph.

I’m sure everyone has a lot on their plates this week, so let’s get to it.

Let’s start with a couple of updates.
