QT: Setting Yourself Up for Success in 2021 (and Beyond)


As you may have heard me talk about once or twice, I’m a big fan of setting big goals for myself.

Rumor has it, winter is rapidly approaching in many parts of the country/world. 

Coulda fooled me, as it was 73* at 4 AM the other day!

I Digress
