Many people are taking it easy during this last week of the year, which is certainly understandable; what better way to wrap up what has been, for many people, a challenging and stressful year than to spend some quality time with loved ones? On the other hand, you’d be wise to take advantage of some of the holiday downtime to develop a game plan for a solid start to 2010. While other business owners are still trying to get their bearings after the holidays, you can hit the ground running, getting a jump start on the competition. Following are a few tips to help you kick off the new year with a bang.
