2018 Ruminations and 2019 Resolutions



Another year of goals/resolution I hope to achieve. Some are more easily accomplished than others. I find including a mixture of easy to reach and hard to achieve resolutions results in at least a happier conclusion to the year.

    • Earn $60,000.00 in traditional small business income.
    • Take home $100,000.00 in income.
