“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach” – Tony Robbins
It is an exceptional privilege for us to publish our first newsletter at the beginning of a new year.
After an extraordinary 2020, which no doubt required several adjustments from most of us, the dawn of 2021 was almost like a gift that waited to be opened and we were full of anticipation for the spoils that awaited us. We have already experienced a piece of that spoil with the budget speech, delivered by Minister Tito Mboweni on 24 February, in that no significant increase in tax rates was announced, as was the overall expectation. May this snippet of good news be the forerunner of several more that will follow throughout the year.
However, while we may expect 2021 to be a good year, we should still be realistic and recognise that this year will not be without its challenges. Economic recovery in our country should take priority and every business owner, therefore, has a huge responsibility to contribute to that recovery. If 2020 taught us anything, it is that nothing is cast in stone; that things can change in the blink of an eye. Therefore, it is so much more important that we pursue our goals for 2021 with the necessary adaptability and resilience.
May 2021 hold unprecedented growth and prosperity for every client, acquaintance, and friend of ASL. Together we can achieve the unthinkable and it is our wish that every business will flourish — your success is our inspiration.
