First off, a programming note: Weston’s offices will be closed on Wednesday, January 1, 2020, for the New Year Holiday. Here’s hoping you have an enjoyable New Years!
As we bid adieu to 2019 and jump into 2020, we’d like to look back on the year at Weston. Specifically, we want to look back at what we have done at Weston, but also what you have done as readers of this newsletter and link back to the most read content of the past year. New Year’s technology resolutions of the past still apply as good practice and the 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015’s year-end wrap-ups are all worth a read.
Our core purpose at Weston is to better the lives of others. That is why we are in business in the first place. We work hard to better the lives of you, our clients, by reducing frustration and business interruptions due to technology while helping you plan out how to accomplish your business goals. With our people-first focus, we hope it comes across that we truly care about making your day a bit better when you give us a call or drop us a chat. We also truly care about the communities we live and do business in as we support lots of great non-profit organizations financially and continue to provide our time and expertise whenever we can. These organizations directly impact the well-being of those in our local communities, nation and the world and we feel it is a privilege to help and support them.
We’ve been doing this for over 25 years now, and we’re glad you’re here with us.
We hope this newsletter and blog have been a valuable resource to you (and please email us if there is any particular type of content you’d like to see). We ran some numbers to see what people are reading.
