My 5 Favorite Resolutions For The New Year

Belated happy new year! I wish you all health, happiness, prosperity and humor for 2009!

Opposite to previous years, I started the new year by making three resolutions:

  • To be dedicated to help people to make most out of the internet and grow my business
  • To expand my professional network
  • To learn something new every day.

Since I was curious what kind of resolutions other internet professionals made, I browsed through the web for some great thoughts. Here are my favorite resolutions for 2009:

Canadian Marketing Blog:

I resolve to be optimistic that businesses will remember the golden rule: You have to spend money to make money – especially in tough times. Stay top of mind with your best customers and they’ll remain loyal.

Copywriters Roundtable:

Around the clock, make curiosity a habit.  Ask questions. Every morning, read one piece of direct mail. Every day, have a set time for writing.  Never deviate from it. Always seek out your critics. They’ll teach you much more than your fans ever could.
