Get ready, some medical experts are predicting the worst flu season in history

Medical experts are bracing for one of the worst flu seasons in history.
The main flu strain for 2017-18 is known as the H3N2 virus, and it is more deadly than the swine flu. The flu is now widespread in about 46 states, reports the CDC.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and other organizations are calling for the development of a universal vaccine.

Medical experts in the United States are worried that this year's flu season could be a nasty one that may be lethal.That is because this year's main flu strain, the influenza A virus, known as H3N2, is worse than the swine flu in 2009. To put it in perspective, back when the swine flu was making headlines it infected just 51,000 people in Australia. This year's H3N2 sickened over 215,000 and the illness has hit our shores. It's a situation that has led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to do a collaborative study with global health partners in an effort to make addressing the situation a global priority.

Do you listen to Podcasts?
Back in 2004 Mark Warner our sales manager at the time and I started the first podcast for the cleaning industry. We produced over 100 shows, won the 2004 ISSA innovation award and had a great time doing it. The 100+ shows have been downloaded over 100,000 times and can still be listened to on iTunes or directly on

I haven’t done a podcast for a while but I listen to them all the time. When I am driving in the car, testing cleaning products or just laying around. Here a few of the ones that I would suggest you listen to help your business. If you do a google search using the name of the podcast you will be able to figure out the best way for you to listen.

NPR’s How I Built This With Guy Raz is all about dreams, innovators, idealists and entrepreneurs, of course. In each episode, Raz discusses well-known founders and their brands, and dissects the stories behind the movements they’ve created.

On the daily podcast So Money, host Farnoosh Torabi chats with business thought leaders about how they manage their finances. High-profile guests such as Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss, Arianna Huffington and Seth Godin have shared raw, personal money stories, as well as money-management tips and tricks.

Sometimes, a simple quote is all the inspiration you need to get through the day. But Quote of the Day host, entrepreneur and money expert Sean Croxton and his guests take it a step further. A brief audio clip follows the quote for maximum motivation, followed by anecdotes and advice for life coaches.      

Stay warm and have a great Sunday and an even better sales week!
