Welcome to the first day of Summer and the countdown towards the big day of celebration that we all look forward to at the end of the year – Christmas Day.
Every day this month we will be featuring a special Christmas tip, idea and strategy to help you maximise your profits – and we will even be delving into Santa’s sack for a gift or two for you!
Many businesses – outside of the retail industry, at least – slow down over the Christmas holiday period but are unprepared if an unexpected disaster strikes. We only have to look to recent events such as the flooding, hailstones and downpours that La Nina has brought this year.
