Business Challenge of the Week – Finish Strong

September – Business Challenge Recap

Before we start another month around a new theme, I wanted to recap all the topics and challenges we’ve covered so far this year to give you a chance to review your progress in each area.  As we enter September and all that comes with it –  i.e. back to school, the start of fall, the start to the holiday season – we are also beginning the last third of the year.  My challenge to you is to use this recap to make sure you are WORKING ON YOUR BUSINESS and not just IN YOUR BUSINESS.  You still have time to make 2012 a successful year if you are focused and purposeful.
