Deadly Spring weather disrupts lives, businesses

The tornadoes that struck Joplin, Missouri left a tragic wake that will be felt for years to come. Aside from the heart-rending human loss, as business people, we at Directo are thinking of the once-thriving businesses that are going to struggle to continue operations as they rebuild, and our thoughts are with them in their journey.

Spring has always been the time of volatile weather, but this year's news has been extraordinary. It's a wake up call to all of us.
