Eight ways to prepare your business for 2012

Let’s face it – December is a very busy month. Holiday shopping for our loved ones, attending family gatherings and company holiday parties, making appearances at gift exchanges, identifying tacky sweaters (and wearing them) for those ugly sweater parties – the list does not stop. To make our lives even crazier, we have clients looking to spend their last dollars [or pounds, or Euros Ed] in fear that they’ll lose it in the New Year. Sounds like a good problem, right?

Right. Except that this last ditch effort to spend that last dollar presents shorter and shorter deadlines, creative energies running in 15 different directions, and needless to say, longer hours at the office. Forget about going to the mall tonight, kindly ask your spouse – it’s going to be a late night.
