Week in Review – 11/22/2014



Most of us who get into entrepreneurship start with the intention of working LESS than we did at our regular jobs.

Are your distractions helping you to avoid change and growth?  Become friendly with solitude via  meditation, journalling, time in nature, yoga, or spending a dedicated period of time each week doing your favorite creative activity.

Enjoy the posts and the weekend!
