|Kevan Lee||Dec 2, 2019|
This month's picks lean a bit heavily on the marketing side (we've been deep in marketing strategy for the past few weeks). If you've read any good management articles, please do pass them along. I'd love to see them.
A special thank you to everyone who has been part of this email list this year. It's been a pleasure connecting with you, sharing with you, and hearing from you.
Wishing you a very happy December!
