It's a new year in small business land and nothing is any different for small businesses owners than it is for everyone else. People have stopped mentioning the embarrassing things you did at the Christmas party, you survived the in-laws coming over during the holiday and you're looking forward to this year being a good one, or at least another one you can get through with just a few more grey hairs.

In other ways though, things are quite different. You've probably got back to the office to find yet more meaningless red tape sitting on your desk. You're hoping that hidden inside all the platitudes about 'helping business be more effective' there isn't a new killer rule about how widgets must only be screwed into do-das on Thursdays and only when staff have two arm rests on their chair, just in case they fall off and injure themselves.
