It’s hard to believe it’s the end of the year already. It seems like just yesterday we were talking about planning for 2018, and now 2019 is basically about to steamroll us.
More than just planning for the new year, there are a lot of key things an entrepreneur should be doing to wrap up a year. Some are routine things that we just have to prepare for, like taxes, but others are non-obvious and you may be missing a lot of opportunities if you don’t take this time of the year to do.
