It’s cold and there’s snow on the ground. Of course it’s January, so that’s to be expected. Yet, I’m already thinking ahead to spring time because I am currently working on The Local Biz Magazine’s Spring 2016 issue… and I am stoked! As you know, I have always been proud of the content we publish in our magazine and online, and this time is no exception. What’s different this time though is that we’re doing a theme issue.

Now I can’t tell you yet what the theme is yet… you’re going to have to wait until March when the magazine comes out to find that out… BUT I can tell you that it’s about a topic that I know many of us, including myself, often struggle with. It’s one of those topics that no matter how much you read about it, you can never read enough. So to decide to do an entire issue dedicated to this topic was a no-brainer. Because at the end of the day, we all need a refresher on the particular subject matter.

We also have an incredible group of feature writers for  you in this upcoming issue. The people writing the features are experts on the topic at hand, have a real passion for it and in some shape and form, practice what they preach. Basically, they’re going to be sharing knowledge that they use in their own lives. How pertinent is that? So they know what they’re talking about, and they’ve got some great wisdom to share with you!

Okay… so that’s all I’m going to say for now. You’re going to have to wait for just over a month to find out the rest, so stay tuned! It’s an issue you won’t want to miss! 🙂
