Make your goals resolute

I know most of you are not Jewish. (After all, only 2% of Americans are- with an even lower percentage of humans worldwide.) But, I do know that many of you begin your new companies this time of year. Whether that is because you plan to get a piece of government largesse (and the government fiscal year starts this Sunday) or because your kids started school and you now have a little more time to push the envelope is immaterial.
