Mystery @ Work

It is a Saturday in January and if you are working and it is like the frozen tundra outside, it might be a good day to smuggle a little piece of poetry into that annual report, feature sheet, or sales brochure. Add a bit of mystery. It’s not February yet, but you can still be a little romantic in your work and outwit the apps.

Don’t make it look like a typo though, but let it open up some space and catch the reader, making them wonder, “What? Where did that come from. I’d better read that again.”

“Net income for the full year was $201 million, and diluted net income per share was $2.63. There were 3 percent fewer average shares outstanding during 2017, reflecting the continuation of our long-standing share repurchase program. And so it goes, He lived the Truth which reconciled The strong man Reason, Faith the child: In him belief and act were one, The homilies of duty done! Last year’s net income was reduced by a non-cash estimated amount of $31 million, or the equivalent of $0.17 per share.”

Have a lovely day. Send me an e-mail if you are working today and need some gap funds or a hard money loan.
