There really isn't much I'd do differently at this point in my career.  I believe in the "don't fix it if it is not broken" philosophy :)

I've found that too many people don't stick with what works (or is about to work) giving up a day too soon.  I work by referral only (long before the gurus proposed it!) and will continue to do so.

I usually write my business plan in December so I hit the ground running in January.  It does keep you on track.
