Lots of new and exciting things to share this month. 😉
Find out what I've been up to (besides taking over the world).
Well, it's 2018. 'Tis the time of year many people set those "life-altering resolutions" that often fail. Really, it's been proven that only 8% of people actually achieve their new year resolutions (80% fail by February).
