As we are really getting cranked up for the year, I think it is worth remembering that we all need to have clear, written goals for the year. If you have not built a plan already, then do so! If you are having making these goals, let me know.
Now to the business of Sonoma County. Tonight is the Awards Gala at the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce. I hope to see folks there and chat about business and pleasure. If you are in Sonoma County, you probably need to think about joining this Chamber. There is a good sized membership and lots of events to attend. Just keep it in mind.
Well, we got a tiny bit of rain last night. Nowhere near enough. All we can do is hope for more rain at the moment. We have to also think about conservation wherever we can. Take a look at the Sonoma County Economics Board Green Business website for ideas.
I heard a report on the radio that Single Family Home Sales were down nationally. That seems to be in line with what is going on inside Sonoma County. The thought is that the inventory issue that we see locally is the same nationally.
In about 2 weeks, we will have the 4Q reports from local public companies. I will be tuning in and reporting what I hear. This is particularly true about Cyan, which seems to be in a spot of trouble.
Finally, I want to send out a reminder about my Lunch and Learn event at noon on 2/13/14. Lunch will be provided by Chef Chris. This will be held at the Sonoma County Veterans Memorial Building. The topic is Time Management and is based on the work of Brian Tracy. Brian is the founder of FocalPoint. He the author of over 60 books and has lectured and consulted on a global basis. If you want to know more about this event, just let me know!
