Amidst a year of struggle for many retailers, the newfound challenges revealed a number of positives in innovation, and sales even soared for some.

March is when we are lucky enough to go the extra mile to remind ourselves of the accomplishments of women throughout the years -- from cultural strides, to business and landmark societal milestones, the impact of women deserves year round celebration. From 2007 to 2018, the number of women-owned businesses increased by 58% while all other businesses grew by just 12%.

Gender diversity is not only valuable for your business but for the overall economy.

You look for points where you're compatible, you have to make sure your personalities and interests complement each other, you want to find someone who encourages your goals and ambitions. And, more than anything, you want someone you can introduce to your parents—okay, maybe it's not exactly the same.
On Dec 4, 2020, the House of Representatives passed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act by a vote of 228-164. If passed by the Senate, this legalization bill would deschedule and decriminalize marijuana on the federal level. The bill is not expected to be introduced to the Senate until the next session of Congress, however, and will have to go through the House once more.
