Did you know that January is named after the Roman god Janus? Janus is the god of beginnings, transitions, doorways, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces - one that looks back on the past, and one that looks to the future.
For me, January turned out to be a month of two halves…
And just like Janus, I’ve been looking both backwards and forwards.
Looking back at last years figures and processes - thanks mainly to a pile of paperwork and various bookkeeping tasks.
And looking forwards, trying to get organised and make plans for myself and the business - thanks to The Jenny Pace and her Better Business Plan free five-day challenge.
New Year doesn't always feel all that shiny and new when you've got an e-commerce business and a pile of post-Christmas catching-up work to do. So, this year, I'm going to embrace the Lundar New Year as my starting point for the year instead. So here's to a happy, healthy, and abundant new year!
