Entrepreneur Office Hours - Issue #161
Looking back and looking ahead.
On one hand, as a content creator, I get frustrated around the end of the year because I spend lots of time writing new articles and lots of people in my audience don’t read them because of the holidays and what not. It’s so bad that I didn’t even bother publishing new articles this week. Instead, I’m sharing an article I published last week that I didn’t include in the previous issue of EOH. I assume my laziness isn’t going to bother anyone since… well… as mentioned above, not a lot of you saw the article.
On the other hand, as content creator, I love the end of the year because I’ve published 100+ articles in 2022, nearly as many newsletters, and, for at least one issue of EOH, I get to take a break and recycle old content by posting “My Top 10 Articles of 2022.”
So, without further ado, below you’ll find last week’s article you probably didn’t read, and a bunch of articles from the past year that a lot of you already read and enjoyed. In the meantime, I’m going to log off for a few more days, keep relaxing, and we’ll all jump back into the daily grind together next week.
Happy New Year!
