Nota Bene From Dindy

Writing is my passion along with reading.  What better way to keep you informed?  With a name like DindyCo our blog deserves a special title as well.  Latin is the root of the three wonderfully expressive languages used in my business – English, Spanish and French.  Therefore a Latin name is the obvious choice!  According to Webster’s, Nota Bene means to note well, a practice I strive to achieve on a daily basis.  Here I will share client news, book reviews, articles and interesting tidbits - visit often or sign up to receive pings when there's something new to read.
