It’s a new year, a fresh start, and 2018 is behind us. Now is the time to reflect on how we did last year and set our targets for 2019. This is my favorite time of the year as I get to dig into what worked, what didn’t, what needs to be increased and what needs to be removed in the coming year. As mentioned previously in our 2018 New Year post, it’s crucial you write down your goals each year.

There is no set industry consensus on the definition of a primary, secondary or tertiary market. Aside from the overall ambiguity of the terms, there are a broadly recognized set of characteristics that help investors define a market.
