Business and Closing out the year…

If the holidays are not hectic enough with gift giving, holiday gatherings, relatives visiting and the like, maybe your like many people and work for a publicly traded company.  Well now, let’s just add to the end of year fun!  It can be absolutely crazy trying to close business right up until December 31st and yet, understandably, it is what is expected. After all, it’s all about shareholder value, right? I mean it is what it is.  I did however, read something just the other day that put it all in perspective. The piece was simply entitled, “Family” and it read as follows….
