Covid-19 = the reset button

Stand out!

As we head towards the end of the year 2019 and the end of a decade, it’s an opportunity to pause, take stock and make some new decade goals. I’m thinking BIG! I’m thinking BOLD. How about you? What are your goals for 2020? You see, I’m heading towards my 45 year on the planet […]
