Did you know that the New Year was first celebrated in Babylon over 4000 years ago? The Babylonians celebrated the New Year in the spring for 11 days and they even had new year's resolutions. A favorite resolution is rumored to be the return of borrowed farm equipment.

What are your New Year's resolutions? What are your goals? Any great business planning tips? Happy New Year!
