The Business Journals: The Only Year-End Checklist You Will Ever Need

Calhoun Companies president and co-owner, Andy Kocemba, is a contributing writer for The Business Journals. Each month, he offers advice on buying and selling small to mid-size businesses.


Dec. 2015

The end of any year is always a boom time for checklists. Here’s the only year-end checklist you will ever need.


The end of any year is always a boom time for checklists. Every email I receive or magazine I flip through has some sort of “top 10” to help me wrap up my year and get the next one off to a great start.

If you are like me, however, this is also a boom time for many other things: dinners, parties, gifts to buy, children’s school performances, and the list goes on.

My personal approach to each holiday season is to keep it simple, and that doesn’t always lend itself to digging through every list that comes my way. So, here is my gift to you: the only year-end checklist you will ever need!

It won’t get you out of work completely, but it will help those areas of your life and business that need work to rise to your attention. And it will help you avoid wasting time on areas of your life that are doing just fine. Without further ado, on to the list!

Find the only year-end checklist you will never need on the Business Journals website.
