Season’s Greetings!By Tim Hodson

We’ve finally hit the homestretch for 2018.

I hope that by now you have sold your last poinsettia (if you were growing them this year) and are getting ready to spend the holidays with your loved ones.

Have you hung your stockings by the chimney with care yet? Are you ready to sit back and relax with a cup of holiday cheer and reflect on this past year? Are you ready for 2019? It’s only a week away!

So how was your 2018? Did it meet your expectations? Did you achieve the goals you set at the beginning of the year? What’s on tap for 2019?

Drop me a line over the holidays and let me know if 2018 was naughty or nice for your business.

Quick Reminder

I just wanted to remind you that we are accepting nominations for GPN’s 40 Under 40.

If you have a little downtime over the next week or so and you know an up-and-comer in our industry, why not nominate that person for our Class of 2019?

We are looking for 40 men and women (under the age of 40) who demonstrate superior leadership, creativity, compassion and innovative thinking in their personal and professional lives.

Just go to and fill out the online form.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at GPN!
