Winter is here and many parts of the country are experiencing unusually cold weather - in these conditions it becomes difficult to avoid getting a cold or possibly even a frozen drum. So what do we do when one of these drums is delivered to us? The best thing to do is immediately bring it into our drum storage area and let it warm back up on its own to room temperature - around 70°F - before use.

After 35 years in the lighting design business, a health crisis forced Sam into retirement. At first he was relieved and looked forward to the freedom of not having to work every day, but when a buyer was found and all the legal and financial work was behind him, it was difficult for Sam to let go. He felt like his whole identity had been stripped away. He thought about the business every day and, over time, began to wonder if selling had been a mistake.

Sam's experience is not uncommon. Many business owners have not prepared for life after retirement. Retirement today is no longer what it used to. It¹s a journey, less about what you¹re coming from and more about what you¹re going towards.
