A New Plan

Well, it’s the beginning of 2012, and it’s the time for reflection on the past year and looking forward to the new. I don’t do yearly resolutions (I find it more useful to do them on a daily basis), but suddenly I find myself looking years into the future. I guess running a business will do that to a girl.

I love the concept of this book, because Marsha talks includes hidden gems that other guidebooks won’t tell you about.
