And that means…
You *need* to have your 2012 business plan in place bigtime.
So today's make money tip is:

It's polite, it's simple…and it works.
Remember – you'll make the most money in 2012 when you have the most customers who *listen* to you.
Becoming *the* go-to person in your niche is one grand way to achieve that.
