Highlights: New Year’s Advice & A Sponsor Shout Out

We’re nineteen days into January…how are those 2014 goals going?  I’ve made some progress this month on my 101 in 1001 list and I’m feeling really good about my choice to make “invest” my word of the year.  2014 is going to be a really good year.  And, even if you’re not into resolutions, it’s not too late to start a new habit or choose a goal to work on.  As a result of the time of year, there’s been a lot of posts with tips to improve your life in any realm you choose.
