It’s that time of the year again where we make massive personal commitments to join the gym, stop eating sugar or maybe learn a new language. New Year’s resolutions give us a chance to be completely selfish and just think about ME, with the aim to change for the better. We all shoot for the moon, so why don’t we spend just as much focus on our beloved businesses?
