Let’s talk goals. Part 1: A manifesto of sorts

Goals are a big concept. BIG. Bigger than one post big. Hence the Part 1. Part 1 will be about my goals. Why did I take this training? Why did I work so hard through baby naps and late nights for two YEARS with two young children when I could have sat back and lived […]
