I like to reflect on what worked and didn’t work for me in the previous year, determine what’s important to me for this year, plan for the year ahead and be able to take action. Read on to see how 2022 went and what’s in store for 2023.
I attended the Recurring Revenue Retreat November 16-19, 2022 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida. The conference was “devoted to growing your business with recurring revenue through website services and digital products” and had eight speaker sessions, two “magic”mind groups and two networking events.
Profit First: Transform Your Business from a Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine is one of my favorite business books. I first read it in 2018, then read it again in 2022 so I could write this review. Profit First has made a HUGE difference in my business and I highly recommend it (plus, it’s entertaining).

Traction came recommended to me by several colleagues whose recommendations I value highly, so I wanted to check it out for myself.
