We wear many faces, don many hats, and invoke many influences throughout the course of a single day. As individuals, we are like that. And as a company, The Mailbox is like that.
See, here at The Mailbox, we’re already talking about back-to-school even as we know most of you are wrapping up last school year. Furthermore, some of our editors are already talking about spring—that’s how far ahead the magazine schedule works. Some of the marketing folks are beginning to talk about our big yearly confab that’s occurring in September. For planning purposes, the editorial development folks spend part of their days talking about 2014 and beyond.
The day after the last day of school, all I wanted was to be on vacation with my family. At the same time, with the taste of a well-chewed school year still fresh in my mouth, I wanted to sit down with a new lesson plan book and get August and September organized, October outlined, and the busy months of November and December cooking on the back burner. So congratulations on finishing the 2010-11 school year. Have you seen our back-to-school books yet?
