The Final Stretch – Closing 2017 on a High!

closing 2017


As the year comes to a close, we should be closing 2017! Now is a good time to reflect on our accomplishments and review the goals we had set for ourselves at the start of the year.

In closing 2017, if you are an employee, reflect on your productive outputs for the year and push to close any loose ends before it finishes.

If you are someone who is looking for a job, this could be the best time to freshen up your skills and perfect your CV in preparation for when the hiring starts in the new year.

If you have a retail business and are closing 2017, this holiday period would be a very exciting time for you since it can generate a lot of your year’s profits. Make the most of it!

If you are in selling to corporates, then you still have a couple of weeks to convince your customers of spending their remaining budget with you, or if that doesn’t work, at least try to secure a strong start to 2018.

If you are an entrepreneur looking at raising funding, this would be a good time to reflect on your 2017 metrics and align your business model with the future trends. You can then be ready to perfect your pitch in time for when the investors get back into action after the holidays.

Whatever is your role, let’s keep at it and close the year on a high. This way we can enjoy the holiday season even more!

I’d love to hear from you about how was 2017 for you. Did it provide you with more opportunities? Was it a challenging year?
