Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/07/2013 -- According to ancient chinese lore, this will be a year of detailed progress in business and a continuance of the 2012 Dragon year. They are both scaled reptiles and live in the water. As far as predictions go, whatever was going on last year will likely continue. For some that means greater achievements in business and thought, but for others there could be challenges. The flip side of the snake is that it can be very sneaky and calculating.
