5 things to remember while getting ready for 2020

If you have seen the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, you know the story of a man who sacrificed his own dreams to help build others. George Bailey gave up traveling the world to keep the building and loan business going so that people would have a place to live. After his uncle lost a large sum of money (actually stolen by the villain) and facing possible jail time, Bailey thought the best thing he could do was to leave his life behind.

Time passes by to a brand new year while we remember 2018

Looking back to 2018,  like to reflect on some of the articles we have posted at MainWP. In fact, earlier in the month, we did just that. One of the types of articles I like to post is Q&A’s.

I know what’s going to happen at the stroke of midnight, on December 31st, 2017 (or January 1, 2018, if you prefer). Everyone is going to celebrate, confetti will fall, people will hug and kiss each other, and on queue, everyone will break out into song: Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And auld lang syne!  The modern day version: Should old acquaintances be

Preparing your sales funnel for 2018

Getting ready for a new year means a lot of different areas of your business need attention. Today we are going to discuss preparing your sales funnel. It’s officially the holiday season in the United States. Maybe it is where you live as well. In the town where I live, we go all out downtown. We have a very tall Christmas tree, a Ferris Wheel, a kid’s train ride, and a funnel cake stand. Now, when I was younger, I remember having those gloriously loaded, carb saturated, cakes of powdered sugar goodness. These days, I stay far away from those
