At thirty-six years old, I am in an interesting position in the professional world. I am not young enough to be an expert in every new social application that comes out; however, I understand how important it is to pay attention to trends and use them to further my business.

It seems like just yesterday when we could see Halloween candy followed by Christmas treats at every store. And then with the turn of the year, aisles of holiday décor were replaced with Valentine’s Day candy. It surely doesn’t end here; after Valentine’s Day is over; I am sure we will see confectionery targeted specifically for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. Amid all this candy, it’s time we stop and map out our Valentine’s Day survival guide.
