First a quick wrap of 2013. Last year was a good year for me, both personally and professionally, though quite stressful. The stress in my personal life was definitely caused by the decision to sell my house and build a new house. Even though all went well with both the sale and building the new […]
Still looking for the next challenge. Need to get those goals set for the next 6 months. The Greatest Athlete Obstacle Challenge looks interesting.
