New Years Eve

I love new beginnings!  New school year, new year of life, new job, new apartment, new year! It's always a great time to reset your values and goals. The trouble is sticking with it and taking solid steps, even if they're baby steps, to achieving your goals. I want to share a few of my tips for staying organized and on top of your goals everyday, but especially in the new year. Here's the guide: Trello is an awesome organizational tool.

They are super roomy and great "eat-happy" pants - meaning room to grow as your...
