A Christmas Message from WPG’s CEO
Following a long and divisive year, we are once again reminded of just how troubled and ugly the political process can be. Many people try to convince us that our country – maybe even the world – is in a precarious position. Other people go further, and actually seem to delight in making that gloomy prediction. Every chance they get in fact – or at least after every election. Eventually they’ll be right. We’ll have an off year, and they’ll tell us “I told you so.”
But I don’t feel 2017 will be one of those years: We are coming off a relatively good year and seeing indicators of positive growth. Can we expect to see all the sensational changes we were promised during the election? Probably not. However we still have a lot to be thankful for, and a lot to look forward to.
That being said, especially when business is good, it’s easy to get so busy that we lose sight of what is really important. For me, that’s family and friends. This is the perfect time of year to rediscover what is really important to you. I hope this holiday season provides you with an abundance of opportunities to enjoy the things in life that are near and dear to you, and I look forward to 2017 being a disappointing year for the “I told you so” crowd.
