DEAL OF THE WEEK
I hate to say I told you so … no I don't. Don't you know me by now?? I told you the NY Giants could do it! (If you are at the ASI Show in Dallas and happen to see Ross Silverstein of iPROMOTEu, he should be wearing a sticker that says, "Kathy Huston rules." If not, alert me.) This week, let's sing "We are the champions" and dedicate this issue to champions everywhere, with a handful of very cool awards. Enjoy! Send your feedback directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine. For additional information, contact the supplier.
