A new year can be exciting. One of the fun times of the holiday season is celebrating with family and friends. I love getting together, catching up and all the delicious food that seems to accompany these kinds of festivities.
You have time to reflect on what you accomplished in the previous year and plan all you want to do in the new year. It’s like having a blank slate and being about to create the perfect scenario. Of course, being realistic, we all know that fate steps in and changes things some. But even then, it doesn’t hurt to have the vision and the dream for a great year.
2009 has been a challenging year for many people—the economy hit problems, unemployment rose, America is still at war on two fronts, home and car sales dropped and the list goes on. While illness took its toll on family and friends this past year, we managed to survive and probably even grew a little closer as a result.
We also shared many good times—family celebrations, birthdays, business successes, weekend retreats and more. Advisory Link survived the tumultuous year and is set for growth in 2010. We know it is because of the strong services we provide our clients, including our Exec-U-Link groups http://advisorylink-dfw.com/execulink.html which help support other women business owners, executives and car dealers. Additionally, our focus on the very important women’s market has always provided innovative ways to businesses on how to attract and retain women as both loyal customers and employees.
As this year draws to a close, I toast to everyone’s success—big or small, and to the bright future ahead.
