Biz X magazine October 2016 – Vol 19, Issue 9


Well first tornadoes hit our area and now many have spent the weekend cleaning up from the flood and sewage backups. Always seems to be something affecting business owners here in the region. However we are from Windsor Essex and we are survivors!

Our October magazine was being printed at the time the rain began and you will see with an article on businesses affected by the August tornadoes . . . little did we know the floods would be another damaging force of nature for homes and businesses. Our sympathies go out to all dealing with the aftermath of this storm (us included). We can all be thankful no one was seriously hurt.

But never fear, Biz X is always here and can give you many hours of enjoyment as you read our latest issue.

Find out about the “Windsor ComiCon,” area dance studios and lots of small businesses making a big splash!

So “keep calm and carry on” as the saying goes. We are! And we shall be in your inbox and place of business, next month with the 19th annual Biz X Awards Edition.

Stay safe! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Deborah Jones, Publisher Biz X magazine
