This Saturday, October 27th, is National Make a Difference Day! Is there anything in your life that you've been meaning to do? Big or small, major changes or simple tasks, National Make a Difference Day is your opportunity to get energized and motivated to finally get to it!

Did You Know

17 years ago today on October 23, 2001, Apple introduced the very first iPod. While other MP3 devices were already available, Steve Jobs thought they offered an uninspired user experience. At the time, Apple's new portable music player was considered revolutionary tech. Today, such devices have of course become obsolete with the rise of smartphones. To honor the impact of the iPod, today is recognized as iPod Day on the anniversary of its announcement.


Have a great week and keep networking!
