Happy Holidays!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and successful 2014

We are in the middle of the holiday season and I would like to wish every one of you a great end to a very busy year and lots of success in the new year. This year has been very good for EFG Consulting and I expect great things for 2014.  I know I have been very much out of touch with everyone this year, but I plan to make more time next year to reconnect.

Announcement:  This is the Last Newsletter

I know I haven't sent a newsletter out in a long time, so this is more than a little bit overdue. I have been working with Charles Gaba of Brainwrap Web Design for more than a year now.  His business has been growing well beyond his capacity to manage it alone. We talked last year and agreed to merge our resources and focus on Brainwrap Web Design. This means that I will only be focusing on programming and web design contracts for the forseeable future. I am not going out of business - quite the opposite in fact - but the nature of my business has changed dramatically. It does not make sense for me to continue marketing EFG Consulting as I have in the past.  I will only be doing business consulting and project management on a case by case basis going forward.

I will be doing some marketing for Brainwrap Web Design, however, and sending out newsletters from there.  If you are interested in receiving those newsletters, please let me know and I will add you to that list. 


I will continue to update my blog, but the content is going to be much more wide open going forward.  I may blog about weight loss issues, programming best practices, how to make lasagna with no tomato sauce, business development or anything else that I feel like talking about.
