Forget Resolutions Go For Real Solutions

H- have faith in your abilities

A- advertise and market

P-post positive, handwritten notes to others

P-provide opportunities to grow

Y-yearn to be a success


E- enjoy the process

W- worry less, work more

Y-yearly mental and physical health checkup

E-educate yourself about your audience

A-adopt the 7 habits of highly effective people

R-rest, relax, renew

Thanks to my co-author Anita Tieman for this fun way to look at the new year.
