      ~ Robin

  2. Robin, thank you for this extremely helpful and timely roundup. I spent the weekend reading each of the posts and can tell you I picked up great tips from all of them. Going into a new year is a perfect time for business owners to reevaluate what’s working and what’s not, and then come up with improved strategies. It starts with an honest assessment of business goals, personal passion for what you do, and a keen understanding of the buyers you are trying to help. Then constant evaluation and adjustment, if necessary. It’s hard work, and each of these posts is truly a goldmine of information for those willing to invest the time. Thanks, Robin, for providing this resource! I will refer to it often and am happy to share it.

    • Hi Michelle,

      I am so happy to hear that you like this roundup. Yes, there are great tips in these posts. I agree that reevaluating what’s working and what is not at the beginning of the year is a perfect time.

      Thanks for stopping by, Michelle, and for sharing this! Have a great week ahead!
