I hope this email finds you and your family in good health.  We are now well into Autumn.  However despite that we have had some unseasonably warm days and I hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy those with perhaps some biking, hiking and other outdoor activities as well as last looks at fall foliage. We continue to watch the ups and downs of the Patriots and their QB growing pains in the post Tom Brady era even as TB12 at age 45 still looks to be playoff bound and maybe even leading the Tampa Bay Bucs to their second Super Bowl.  Our winter sports teams are now underway with both Celtics and Bruins under new coaches, with some early success.  November is also the month for High School football in Massachusetts and elsewhere in New England and perhaps other parts of the country as well.  Last year, my alma mater, Marblehead High School incredibly won a 31-28 last second thriller against its Thanksgiving arch-rival Swampscott and then the next week its Division 3 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium where our Magicians won in another thriller 35-28 over the North Attleboro Red Rocketeers. So, if you too are following your high school teams and might like, my brother and I, actually attend your traditional HS rivalry game at 10:00am on Thanksgiving Day, my best wishes and hopes for all of us for clear weather and not too cold. 😊  November also finds well underway in its new season, the Boston Entrepreneurs’ Network (ENET), the non-profit group where I have been active for more than a quarter century including a decade as Chair (2009-2019).  After a 2-year Covid hiatus, ENET is now in its third month of again holding live meetings, two per month, one suburban (Burlington) and one urban (Cambridge), with an added registrant option to attend  remote via a zoom link.   In this update, I offer a link to register for ENET’s next meeting tomorrow night at the CIC in Cambridge, plus information and slides from three speakers for an earlier ENET webinar that I co-organized on a similar topic. This update also includes a link to an article of mine on managing multiple executive job offers, published ten days ago in CEOWORLD magazine, plus links to two earlier articles of mine on a different executive topic, one published by the IVYEXEC career advancement website and the other also by CEOWORLD, and then finally a special offer on a subject related to my IVYEXEC published article.   I hope these items might be of some benefit. 😊
