We compare the recently completed third quarter of this year vs. the same quarter of last year as well as Year to Date results for 2008 (Quarters 1-3) vs. the same time frame in 2007. The results may surprise you! 

The newsletter also features more details (and new photos) from domain industry giants Dr. Chris Hartnett and Dr. Kevin Ham recounting their experiences at the Harvard Business School where they just completed the rigorous and internationally acclaimed Harvard Advanced Management Program.
