2. What growth/learning do I need to get there?
3. What impact do I want to make in 2019?
4. What first step can in the first quarter to move forward on my
Ok, just a short note this week as I’m off and running again to the next holiday gathering. Stay tuned for more details on the podcast in the new year.
