I’m a big fan!

I make time to listen to the Trend Report podcast because I want to be the first to know about the latest trends in the commercial interiors industry. Sid has done a fantastic job of varying the content to keep it interesting. Being an independent manufacturers’ rep can be lonely; the Trend Report helps me feel connected with others with the same goals. Keep it up, Sid!
