Introducing the New

We are pleased to announce that a redesigned is now ready for public beta testing. It features a clean, minimal design, improved navigation, mobile web compatibility, and a new platform that sets the stage for future integration with mobile apps.

The new is now available to all users. If you don’t already have an account, it’s quick and easy to set one up. To access the new, sign in to your account, navigate to the bottom of the screen, and click on the “Try the new site” link.

The redesigned will remain in beta for some time. We will continue to add features and improve the performance of the site before transferring all accounts over. In the mean time, you can switch back and forth between the old and the new sites.

Improvements users can look forward to include:

• Infinite scrolling
• An option for a wider Bible text column
• Improved site performance
• Additional interface themes
• Increased compatibility with Crossway’s ESV mobile apps, including syncing of notes, highlights, reading plans, etc.
• Numerous smaller user interface improvements

On Syncing with ESV Mobile Apps…

Please note that implementing syncing of notes and reading plans between and the ESV mobile apps will be carefully rolled out in multiple phases in the coming months. We know this is a common feature request many of you have been patiently waiting for. While we can’t provide a definitive timeline, we can tell you the plan is to first provide syncing integration with a new Global Study Bible mobile app, and then integration with the other ESV mobile apps in the early months of 2013.

Mobile Web Compatibility

The new features responsive design, meaning it automatically adjusts to fit smartphone and tablet screens.

Dealing with Bad Days - Yvonne Jeffery and Sherri Linsenbach

Everyone and every business has bad days — they're inevitable. How you react to a bad day makes a huge difference, however. If you can keep the day in perspective, knowing that it'll pass and that things will improve, the bad days will be less likely to overwhelm you. Otherwise, you'll be left wondering if, perhaps, paid employment really is the answer.

One of the best ways to deal with bad days is to leave the office completely if you can or at least to take a break in some way even if it's ordering pizza for dinner or taking yourself out for a walk or a coffee. If you're losing your motivation, sense of humor, or coping strategies, it's a sure sign that sticking around the office is a bad idea and in fact might just make the problem worse.

Feeling Overwhelmed

You're producing the product, you're marketing it, you're selling it to the customer, and you're accounting for it. That's a lot to juggle at once. It's also easy to become a victim of your own success — being in demand is a compliment to the quality of your goods or services. But if you're running out of inventory or all of your clients are calling at once, the fast pace becomes increasingly stressful.
