As 2017 moves into 2018, I'm reminded of the new beginning granted with the coming of each new year. It may be difficult to summon the stick-to-it-iveness required to see these chances through, but as they say, no pain, no gain. As a businessman and a human, I have every opportunity to start fresh, take advantage of new opportunities, and to attack life with renewed vigor.
