Jan 1st 2011
A new year has arrived and the old year just made it's exit.
I am picturing Old Man (2010) with his wrinkled face and aging body shuffling off into obscurity and that tech-savvy, groovin’ cool, young dudette (2011) social-networking her way down the highway.
While many believe that January is not the time for CPAs to be thinking about planning and making changes for the new year, I don’t agree. Start the year off right – don’t procrastinate until May (or later) when the year is half gone.
If nothing else, schedule a 3-hour partner meeting for early January and list your immediate, most-pressing issues. Talk about each one (but don’t over-talk them!). Then record the commitments every owner will make to help remedy these challenges beginning immediately and as you work your way through busy season.
I keep looking at this picture and trying to come up with a catchy phrase to end this post. I’ve decided to just say enjoy your New Years’ Day celebrations and have a prosperous 2011 filled with change and a youthful mindset no matter what your age.
