The year 2013 is gradually winding to an end, and soon it would be completely gone to allow for the ushering in of 2014. The year has been full of memories of successes and some failures as well. The good memories are to be remembered while the unpleasant ones should be discarded as much as possible.
As the year fades away, there are friends that need to be remembered for the positive contributions they made in my life. Here in Business Success Guide, there were those who made great contributions to my success story, and my story can never be complete without a mention of their names.
It is time to say a Happy Christmas to them and also wish them a successful, productive, trouble-free, lovely New Year ahead. You all made us proud; and this is my little way of appreciating you for your regular visits, your valuable comments and for sharing my posts with friends. Some of you went the extra mile to share our posts on some great social network/bookmarking sites. I cannot thank you enough.
I sincerely believe 2014 will be better. I hope to improve on the quality of our relationships, add more value to this blog and also get more quality interviews and giveaways for the readers of this blog. You are truly awesome. You deserve nothing but the best.
By the way, I would need new writers/contributors in the New Year. If you are interested to be a regular contributor here, please let me know so we can get things in place for the New Year. I would need writers in the areas of “Small business, bloggingtips, social media, and finance”.
So who were our best friends in 2013?
The most outstanding friends of this blog for 2013 are as follows:
1. Harleena Singh:
