Year In Review - 2016

Year In Review - 2016

What a long, strange year it has been. 2016 had ups, downs, twists and turns but it's finally come to an end. I want to thank each one of you for being a loyal reader in our inaugural year. What a wild ride it's been. Let's hope 2017 proves to be even better for the Memo.

Whether you're hitting the slopes out west, sitting in your office (like me) or exploring the far east, I hope each one of you has a very happy new year and a prosperous 2017.
