It’s almost the end of 2018 (what?!) – so over the next 2 episodes, we’re going to help you to get clear on where you want your business to go in 2019.

Today, the focus is on your vision – the overarching intention for your business in 2019. We discuss our own approach to visioning, including choosing the ‘one word’ to focus on. And… we outline not only our personal business visions, but we let the cat out of the bag on some of the visions we have for The Business of Making – beyond the podcast! Don’t miss Part 2 next week, where we get more into the nitty-gritty of planning for the year ahead! ~ Jess, Mik & Deb
