I’m not always one for New Year’s resolutions, but a new year seemed like a good time to refocus.… Read More It’s Time for Me to Refocus
I’m surprised how quickly 2018 has passed. It really is true how time seems to fly as we get older. I think it’s because we try to fit in so many more things now. At least I’d have to say that’s how things are in my life. I have my very full-time accounting career. I’m… Read More Out With the Old
