Happy New Year to all panelists, panel moderators, and those who may be preparing or perfecting their skills for an upcoming panel discussion. Per our tradition, Joe and I are spending the week updating our strategic plans.  We review the past year’s metrics while noting our accomplishments and things we would have done differently.  We also reflect on the upcoming years – the opportunities and threats/limitations to our businesses.  You can take a look at the process we use each year here as well as how to turn it into a Daily Useful Living One-Page Plan.

As we go through this period of reflection, we just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your readership and all the support you have given us in the last year.  AND we are wishing you a wildly successful 2016!
