How's Business 2014/2015 Poll

Since most business owners have closed out the books
for 2014 by now, we felt is was an appropriate time to poll
our participants and ask how their business fared last year.
We're also interested in hearing your prediction for business
in 2015. Let us know by voting in our latest poll - current
results for the poll will be displayed immediately after voting,
and you may return and view results at any time by clicking
the "Vote Now and View Results" link.
