Look for these connections between articles within the current month's issue and with past issues, too. You may find yourself thinking about a topic in a new way!

• Jim Barnhardt's "Let the Spotlight Shine on Them" (April) & "Servant Leadership: A Model for Us All": In both articles, Jim describes a type of leadership philosophy that is focused on serving others and how that will benefit your business in multiple ways.

• "Does a 7-Hour Road Trip Suck?" & Collecting Dust column: These articles in June's issue revolve around the Vacuum Cleaner Musuem and Factory Outlet in St. James, MO. Tom Gasko tells another great tale of vacuum cleaner history, and Nancy Montgomery then shows us how his tales inspire young people for the future.

Letter from the President & " How to Switch Off an Irate Customer": Judy and John Tschohl nearly read each other's minds and address the best ways to diffuse upset customers.

• "Say Yes to Success!" (April): & "Be Real or Be Gone": Jon Mertz and regular contributor Elly Valas both breach the subject of Millennials and trust. Mertz states that "aligning wisdom through trust" will be an important leadership quality for Millennials and Valas explains that the Millennial customer trusts authenticity.

• "Easy Guide To Patent Your Invention Available for Free" & "New Socket Saver™": These articles discuss the how-to's of invention. The e-book release of Easy Guide… promises to give entrepreneurs tips and tricks on patenting, and "New Socket Saver™" shows the successful results of the process.
