We are approaching the end of the calendar year and would like to take the opportunity to thank all our wonderful clients, your motivation and dedication to your businesses is a true inspiration to us, you are the reason we are here!
What a year we have had there have been highs and lows that have both excited and terrified us. The recent earthquakes scared us all and we have been reminded that the safety of our family and friends is far more important than any possession we own. It also brought home the fact that preparedness is essential as we’ll never know when our world will be shaken (excuse the pun). That is what we do here at Johnston Associates South, we help you prepared for tomorrow and for a brighter future no matter what is thrown in the path.
Like us, many of you will be counting down now to the Christmas break and a well deserved holiday in the beautiful top of the south region, but while you enjoy your holiday please consider this.
In our beautiful country many of our core industries are entering their peak summer season, they are growing our summer fruits and vegetables for the Christmas feasts, they are caring for and entertaining the increasing number of tourists in the area, they are the retail assistants working late nights so you can shop at your convenience, and the hospitality staff serving your meals from hot kitchens. Let’s not forget those who do what many of us cannot all year round like the dairy farmers up at 4am to ensure we have cream for the pavlova, and the truck drivers travelling the long way around to get it all to us in time for the big day. If you are part of one of these industries or any we have missed thank you for your hard work.
If you are lucky enough to have a Christmas break please don’t be silly this holiday season, be patient and kind to these people working hard for their family and community. Without them, your holiday wouldn’t be as great.
Have a great Christmas no matter where you are and what you do, and thank you for an awesome 2016!
