Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

Many consider this one of the best weekends of the year. A Monday holiday makes for extended merriment. I noticed commerce transactions and business activity starting to slow this past Thursday, as if one foot out the door.

Original Brexit

When we hosted our weekly webinar this past Thursday with TransVault, the speaker was Steve Dagless from London so there was the inevitable Brexit references.

Sometimes, like with many holidays, it’s easy to forget what it’s all about. In this case, it’s impendence from the England.

USA Start-up

Another twist to reflecting on the July 4th is this. America was a start-up! True that as we started with virtually nothing and have gone on to be one of the great powers in world history. A unicorn before it’s time! The result? An imperfect system of government that has created a wildly successful start-up environment for businesses with notable shout outs to Apple, Microsoft, Uber, Tesla and the list goes on and on.

Canada Day

Realizing not all our readers hale from the “states,” I wanted to also recognize our friends to the north in Canada. It celebrated it’s Canada Day a couple of days ago, July 1st. That holiday is a reverse Brexit. It’s that day an enactment combined Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick into a single empire indeed called Canada.

There you have it! Have a GREAT JULY 4th and we’ll see you back here next week for your SMB Sunday Paper.
