I'm a big fan of the Christmas season.
It's a great time of year to connect with what's important – faith, family and friends – and take and inventory of what you've done during the past year and plan for an even better year to come.
And then there's the Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas. We will save discussion of this obsession for future columns.
The past year has been one of change. I've celebrated a milestone birthday, wedding anniversary and work anniversary, and the graduation of both kids from college. Life's been good.
Work has been equally as exciting, with no chance of slowing down in 2018.
One of my primary work goals for the new year involves giving this publication a needed boost of love.
For this process to be successful, I need your help.
What would you like to see in YOUR Business Journal? Are there old features you'd like to see return? Do you have ideas for new ones? What do I need to do better?
Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at (217) 421-7976.
Like all of the Hallmark Christmas movies that are already consuming every free moment of my life, I'm confident this project will have a happy ending, too.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
