In some industries, this time of year can be a difficult time to set meetings or get a lot done. With holidays, vacations, year end deadlines, unpredictable weather and a host of other factors, many people are so frazzled they don't have time to take stock and realize that next year is only a few weeks away!
If you get a few quiet minutes this month, take a look at your business numbers to see where improvements can be made for next year. Make sure you are up on any tax payments. Review or get in place an estate plan. As one year ends and another begins, it's a great time to take stock: personally, professionally and health-wise!
