2018 is upon us. The new year offers an opportunity to take a step back and reflect upon how life has been running course - the challenges,  achievements and milestones. It is also a time when people are encouraged to look further and dream. The importance placed on setting goals to achieve those dreams, or resolutions, differentiates this time from any other time of the year. Of course, there is always the running joke that new year’s resolutions are meant to be broken. But it is also true that ‘rebooting’ at this time of year, has led to many people becoming more attuned to what their dreams are and taking concrete steps to making those dreams a reality.


GlobalLinker asked some member entrepreneurs to share their goals for the new year and what advice they would give to aspiring entrepreneurs.
