2013…Write, eat, earn, repeat.

Every year on January 1 I sit down with Craig and complete a vision map for the coming year (see 2012’s here). It will hang on my refrigerator all year long to serve as a reminder of my goals.

Nurture your calling

Starts vibrant, stays vibrant

What are you excited to see happen this year? Please share!
