What I'm Doing Now
Last year at this time I was in a rather precarious situation: I had quit my job in mid-November to start my own firm, and then finally submitted all the necessary documents to the State in mid-December - I didn't know it at the time, but it would take another two months - until February 28th - for the State to approve my application to become a Registered Investment Advisor. So a year ago I had no idea whether my firm would be approved, or whether it would even be successful. Thankfully, both came true, and although it has been a difficult year - the learning curve has been quite steep - I feel confident about where things stand now and excited for what the new year has to offer.
Of course, one thing is the same this year as last, and many years preceding: it is time to gear up for tax season!

Winter at Home
I love being outdoors in winter: hiking in the snow - for pictures from this morning, see my January newsletter - and skiing, in particular at Mad River Glen with my son, who constantly ribs me for being a better skier than I am (he is, and has been since he was probably seven years old). The long, sedentary hours I've spent working over the past year has taken its toll, so I am looking forward to being more active and making that a priority in the New Year.
