Another Update to my 101 in 1001

I originally started this project back on March 1st.  Not quite a year into it and I’ve already tackled a few things on the list…unfortunately, I haven’t quite finished compiling the list.  But as my life seems to be a bit of a roller coaster these days, I think it’s time I added a few things..things that mean something; things that will make me a better person; grow my business; and just make things better all around.
