I hope there is some fist pumping going on at your office this week! As the calendar clicks over to July 1 and the profit and loss statement clicks over to a fresh zero balance, I hope you have reason to celebrate.
End of financial year is a big focus in business, often mixed in with messages of last minute sales, purchases and payments to ensure your tax is legally minimised, last ditch efforts to get the team across the line and hit targets you set yourself over 12 months ago.
I hope your busy June has resulted in a scorecard you are happy with.
I hope FY2019 was everything you intended it to be. Not just in terms of revenue and net profit, but also in terms of other milestones. I hope you achieved the work life balance you intended to, I hope you opened the new office you intended to, I hope you invested in your team as you intended to and I hope FY2019 delivered you some nice surprises too.
But that's all done now. Apart from the final few financial tweaks required to end the year with your accountant feeling as proud of the numbers as you, we're done.
Now onto FY2020!

Here are some great questions for you and your leadership teams as you plunge into FY2020:
I hope FY2020 delivers everything you want and more.
