Our favorite headlines this year: 2017 recap

What a year 2017 has been.

In 2017, we restructured part of our business, redesigned our website, said goodbye to some dear coworkers, and welcomed new members of #TeamEYR. We celebrated random holidays, raced together, and learned about important organizations in our community (and beyond) who are doing tremendous work to make this world a better place.

We also started a little thing called “Our Favorite Headlines” – a weekly blog and email feature where we talk about news in the marketing, business, and wellness world. Since the beginning of the year, we’ve shared close to 160 favorite headlines; that is, articles, blog posts, and videos we thought you’d find helpful and interesting. And since that is way too much content for any one person to review, we thought we’d pare it down in a a special edition of Our Favorite Headlines – a recap of our favorite favorites from 2017.
