Welcome to February. Hopefully we will leave behind the extreme cold in January and better weather days are ahead. Another thing to leave behind is an incomplete business plan. If you have not written your business plan for 2024, it is not too late to do so. Every business owner should have a plan which includes goals, a budget and a vision for their company. This is what holds you, the business owner, accountable for achieving those goals. If you have never written a business plan before, start simple as it does not have to be an extensive document.

Our biggest event of the year, the Home & Garden Show, is February 9-11. This is a great opportunity to promote your company, meet new people and support the Lincoln community. The Remodelers Council’s 22nd Annual Food Bank House will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of Lincoln. Attendees receive $2 off admission if they bring a non-perishable food item. Help us get this message out by sharing on social media and reminding any friends, family or customers who are attending the show. Since 2003, we have collected over 89,600 lbs. of food for the Food Bank. Let’s keep raising that number!
