Happy Holidays

We seem to be entering a quiet period, with not much happening in terms of business networking meetings.  So, "This Week in Philadelphia" will take a few weeks off, picking up after the holidays.

In the mean time, this is a good time to plan for next year, or to reach out to people to make networking connections.  While a lot of people take off for the holidays, there are just as many people who don't.  They take advantage of the quiet time at work to come into the office and get organized.  This is an excellent time to reach out, as the people who are in the office have the time to talk (and think).
