Christina Lewellen, senior editor of Window & Door
For many years now, I have wrapped up the year by asking out WDweekly
readers about their companies' resolutions for the coming year. Last year
and the few before that painted a similar picture—most folks were just
hoping to make it through the year alive and kickin'. Are we more
hopeful and confident this year?
We'll stick with tradition and
ask you to weigh in on your company's resolution for the year. Take a
look at the poll responses and let me know what you would hope to see
your company accomplish in 2011.
But this year, I'd also like to
hear a little bit about your personal resolutions, if you're brave
enough to share. The reason is that my Spidey Sense tells me that many
of our personal resolutions are likely to be related to things going on
in the broader economic environment. With consumer confidence being much
lower than historic norms at this point in a recovery, I'm guessing you
may want to pay down your debt, increase your savings, or advance your
career in a challenging job market. Are you brave enough to share? (It can be anonymous, of course!)
matter what your personal or business New Year's Resolution, the Window
& Door team sincerely wishes you a healthy, productive and
enjoyable year ahead. We love this weekly opportunity to Talk with folks
in the industry, and we continually strive to bring you relevant and
up-to-date information as you conduct business as a window and door
company—and we don't need New Year's for that resolution.
Wishing you a great start to 2011!
