The only way is up
For many business people returning to work after the Christmas break, it will take a few days to build up momentum.
It gives us an opportunity to assess the results of our labours in 2013 and to contemplate this year and our plans and objectives for the coming 12 months.
Thanks to the endeavours, patience and determination of UK businesses, their workforce and leaders we have put the dark days of 2007-8 behind us.
At the close of 2013 we constantly received news and surveys highlighting an encouraging up-lift and success in the economy.
With the FTSE 100 starting the year strongly and with entrepreneurs finding alternative ways of funding their businesses when banks can’t or won’t support them, all the signs are in place for an exciting, expanding and profitable year.
The endeavour and determination needs to continue, however, if a constant positive attitude can be added to the mix, then the sky’s the limit.
