We hope that you take some time during the holiday festivities to let those you care about know that you love them. It’s not how big your presents are but rather using your words and your actions to express your true feelings.
Having come close to losing my mother during the past year, I know that you can never show how much you care in the present because you don’t know how far the future will extend for you and those you love.
We wish you and those close to you the best for the holidays, whichever one(s) you celebrate.

According to research by Nielsen, 70 percent of global consumers trust online consumer reviews and rate reviews as the second most trusted form of advertising. And according to BazaarVoice, when it comes to trust, marketers may as well eliminate their own brand websites as a fountain of customer trust as only 16 percent of US consumers said they trust the content on a brand's website compared to the 51 percent who trust content generated by other users.
Today's digital currency is arguably authenticity, and what attracts customers - especially the digitally dependent, savvy millennial - is not just content. It is the delivery of authentic, unvarnished content from their peers.
