A Taste of 2011 & 2012's Recipe
I was asked recently to share my views of 2011 and whether it was better or worse than expected. Great question and one I pondered for a while.
I thought that as December is well and truly upon us and many of us are planning 2012 I would share my answer with you:
2011 has been as I expected it to be; a dash of positive, a good helping of tough trading, a measure of squeezed margins, a dollop or two of failing businesses all topped with a dose of opportunity and mixed with much uncertainty. I think the recipe for 2012 will be similar and I'm especially looking forward to sampling the opportunities!
I look to the New Year with much excitement and a belief that the new venture I'll be involved with will not only bring me immense pleasure and satisfaction but will also make a real difference to a lot of people, their families and their businesses.
