January 3, 2013

We’ve all been there. Lack of money, lack of transportation and lack of time to get everything done that we need to get done.

December 31, 2012

Let's be honest. How many of us really make it through an entire 12 month-period and actually reach the goals we set for ourselves for the new year?
You know the routine. Come the last week in December, we grab a pen and a piece of paper, ink down our resolutions for the upcoming new year and walk away confidently with our shoulders thrown back and chins lifted, determined that we will meet those goals if it's the last thing we do.
