Global Magazine, October 2017 Now Available

I'm so excited to share, hot off the presses, our latest edition of the AICI Global Magazine. The focus of this edition is on Financial Management. It's such a critical topic for small business owners. Statistically, many small businesses fail within their first five years because of money issues. It's my hope that the content in this edition will be a tool to support you, refocus you, and motivate you to make any necessary financial improvements in your business.

Our goal continues to be to maximize the growth of your business through innovative ideas, cutting-edge solutions, up-to-date information, and professional education that will continue the growth and expansion of our industry. We can only achieve this through the thriving businesses of our membership and beyond.

Please take a moment and read through our Master's Series which features two of the most successful entrepreneurs in our industry. In addition, learn more about our October Member Spotlight and Tedx Talk Presenter, Zayna Rose, AICI CIP. Also, learn why becoming a certified member in our industry will contribute to your financial success.

We are one voice and more powerful together!
