The Worldly Marketer newsletter  -   March 2018 edition
Springing Forward!

This month's edition of the newsletter is a few days behind schedule, and I apologize for that. March managed to sneak up on me. (What? February only has 28 days?!) It's always a challenge when my end-of-month newsletter preparation (my HHU calendar preparation, really)  coincides with the production and publication of a new podcast episode (i.e. a Worldly Wednesday). Add to that cold & flu season and other assorted factors... In any case, here is the March 2018 edition - fashionably late.

My big news for this month is... not quite ready to reveal yet. But I'm quite excited about it, and you'll be getting a special email announcement soon. It involves a new business partnership between  Verbaccino and an almost-ready-to-launch Language Services Provider. I can't wait to tell you about it, so stay tuned for more information!

Finally, don't forget: this month, many (but not all!) countries in the northern hemisphere will be springing forward by one hour to observe  Daylight Saving Time. In Canada and the U.S., DSY begins on the second Sunday in March. In most of Europe, it's on the last Sunday in March. Thank goodness for digital devices! They automatically adjust their clocks AND show you up-to-date time differences between your location and that of your contacts overseas.

Here's wishing you a productive leap into Spring!
