2012: The Year of __________??? :) & - tagged 2009: The Year of Igniting Business, 2010: The Year of Igniting Business & 2011: The Year of Igniting Business!!! We figured it was necessary with the stimulus package not working that well. When it comes to business; it's always a great idea to IGNITE BUSINESS!!! But, in 2012 we wanted a change. Here are some choices:

2012: The Year of Personal Responsibility!!!
Inspired by it being a Presidential Election Year!!! We'll hear a lot of chatter from ‘leaders’, but the reality is: The next phone call you make the next seminar you attend; the next child you give a hug/ encouragement to; has far more to do with your life than any vote for any politician!!! Vote for whoever you wish; count on yourself!!! :)
2012: The Year of Igniting Positive!!!
This world is bombarded by negativity; real and force fed by the media’s ‘if it bleeds it leads’ mentality!!! How can it be a bad idea to spread positive??? The world needs you; ignite positive!!! Really!!! :)
2012: The Year of Creating Greatness!!!
In business, you should want to be great at what you do. If not, you probably should be doing something else!
No complaints, no excuses, in 2012, work to create greatness!!! :)

Take your pick!!! Create your own!!!
Whatever it is; make 2012 a great one!!! :)
Happy New Year!!! Let’s get to it!!! :)

Voted Best of Long Island!!!/ Thanks!!!
For the 2nd year in a row, & has been voted Long Island’s Best Website by Long Island Press readers!!! Thanks to the Long Island Press!!! Thanks to all who voted!!! Thanks to our sponsors for making it possible!!! 
