Welcome to issue #26 of Curated by accountants, and more importantly, welcome to 2018! I hope you all enjoyed some time off over the festive season and are feeling refreshed and ready to step things up in 2018.

The beginning of the year is a great time to take the time to plan what you need to change, reflect on what you have learned, and set yourself some great measurable goals for the next 6-12 months. If you are struggling with this process, check out my video on building your 2018 action plan.
