The Year in Review 2019

In 2019, I reaped the rewards of the hard work I put in last year and in 2017. Things got kicked up a notch too. I got the keys to my first bit of real estate and closed deals for three new businesses. It was not without serious challenges, and some other projects got put […]

New Year’s Resolutions 2019

In 2017 I smashed my goals, but 2018 was not so on-point. Great things happened business-wise, but goals-wise I failed miserably.
