DieQua Corporation May 2014 Newsletter

May 30, 2014 - "Company News"

From the Editor:

An advantage of being late in publishing the newsletter this month is that I can reflect on last Monday's Memorial Day holiday held in the United States. Canada has their version in July. While it was originally established to recognize fallen soldiers from early wars, it has morphed somewhat into celebrating all those we have loved, or otherwise deem important, that have gone before us. While either supporting our freedom or directly affecting our personal development, the legacies left behind deserve to be honored and remembered.

What will your legacy be? If its nothing more than being the best you can be, whether in your relationships or in your chosen field of endeavor, that will likely be enough. Out of respect, take advantage of every day. Those we revered this past weekend don't get a second chance.
