Last year was a year that many of us would probably remember more distinctly than the others. I don’t know about you, but it was a bad year in general. I mean, if I had 10 words to summarize the year, it would be, in no particular order: Syria, Orlando, Prince, George Michael, Zika, Craig Sager, Ali, Carrie Fisher, Leonard Cohen, Nice. Come on, I didn’t even include the Hiddleswift brouhaha, how bad Suicide Squad was (sorry, Marvel fan here), and my Warriors losing to the Cavaliers in the most shocking of sports upsets. I could even include Brexit and the US elections, but I would need more space, not to mention self-control to not use cuss words especially about the latter.
But 2016 was not all bad. On a personal level, it was better than the year before, missing out on a couple Coldplay tickets notwithstanding. Remind me to save more this year.
Now, if you’re in the sales and marketing industry – B2B, B2C, IT, software, etc – and happened to drop by our blog, The Savvy Marketer, it wasn’t a shabby year, either.

Some of the good things that happened last year were the things that you helped make happen. Actually, the same happens most years. This year, with your usual (or maybe even more) support, and as long as Taylor Swift limits to three the poor men’s hearts she’s going to break, the Warriors get their revenge over the Cavaliers, and nobody tries to abolish Christmas, we’re expecting a more meaningful, and more bountiful year. Cheers!
