What We’ve Been Reading Recently

For a number of years, Grassroots Solutions distributed, via email, a bi-monthly “Round-up” of articles that we thought clients and friends might find interesting. We’ve had a lot of people tell us they miss that so we thought we would once again share some of what we have been reading. Moving forward we will do this through our web-site as we are committed to emailing people a LOT less and we will likely do it a little less regularly. When we post new readings we will let people know via our Facebook page and Twitter Feeds. Hope you find some of these interesting. Happy reading!
