Do you still check the weather forecast before heading to work in the morning? Why? It's wrong as often as it's right and you've ruined at least one pair of shoes trudging through snow or wading through flood zones. While we can't always predict the weather, we can be prepared for it. Branded umbrellas make great gifts for clients, vendors, co-workers, and anyone else in your business network, because we all get caught in the rain now and again.
