You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection except during totality. That could severely hurt your eyes. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing – which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen. Both methods should produce clear images of the partial phase of an eclipse. Click here for eclipse viewing techniques and safety.

The National 8(a) conference was a hot ticket last week. I know that many are uncertain because of the new administration and all that presidential transitions always bring. Overall, there was a lot of optimism in the sessions I attended and the theme was “Stay the Course.” If you are successful at what you are doing, keep doing it. Pending contracts aren’t going to go away over night. Any long lasting change in the Small Business Sector will take around 2 years to funnel down from the Fed, good or bad. My strategy of partnerships won’t change, however, as we continue to grow, I will look for additional Mentor Protege opportunities and to partner with larger firms to gain experience and capacity. Here’s to a successful 2017!!
