Ever have a week where you had a million things to do and knew that there just weren’t enough hours in the day? This always happens when I’m covering for people at work. When my coworkers are on vacation I truly realize just how valuable they are. Well this week I was trying to bring you an interview but technical difficulties brought that to a halt, so a regular new packed show today. Next week is the Elevator U Conference in Quincy, IL and it's going to be great! I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at that event. Because it will be very busy next week in Quincy there most likely won’t be a show. If something should change from that plan you’ll be the first to know. As always, thanks for tuning in today!
