It is this very special time of the year that our attention turns away from business and toward family and friends. Many of us will be enjoying downtime in the upcoming weeks and now is the perfect time to reflect back on what was during 2012, and look forward to what we all hope will be the best year ever, 2013. Take the time to think about the successes, the failures, the opportunities and the missteps. All experiences offer the opportunity to learn. Use the learning and the forthcoming economic opportunities to make 2013 the best year ever for you and your business. Do not forget to plan for quality time with your family and friends to make the New Year a happy and balanced one.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire Access Florida Finance Corporation family, its staff, Board, partners, vendors, customers and friends for a great 2012. We established many new relationships over the course of the year. We value each and every relationship we have and say “Thank You” for your help in our success. I know with the enthusiasm and commitment put forth in 2012, 2013 will be our best year ever. We all made significant accomplishments and are striving for more.
We began a new Unsecured Micro Loan Program that was met with huge demand and success. We fortified our relationship with the National Black Chamber of Commerce and conducted the most successful Business Plan Writing Contest in our history! We continue to assist the Black and Rural Business owner in Florida obtain financing when conventional lenders may have said “no.”
At this joyous time of year, we are grateful for our work with you. We wish you abundance, happiness, and peace in a new year filled with hope. Happy Holidays!
