Resolutions for 2013

Good-bye 201, Welcome 2013
thoughtful words from Thoreau
A day in the life of Benjamin Franklin

Just a few inspirational images for the start of 2013. As a lover of nature, I am also a fan of Thoreau and love his quote above. I came across the above schedule on Pinterest and it made me recall a time about 14 years ago that I read The 10 Natural Laws of Successful Time Management, by Hyrum Smith. Shortly after that I ventured out on my own and started my business. I am starting this year full of inspiration having been reading some great books like Strengthsfinder 2.0, by Tom Rath and HARD Goals, by Mike Murphy. Two books I was compelled to read thanks to a favorite designer of mine, Tobi Fairley. I had the pleasure of seeing her speak at High Point several years ago and have followed her ever since. Currently, I’m doing some e-coaching  with her. The growth in her business has been amazing to see and her blog is always full of inspiration. I’m looking forward to 2013 being full of growth and inspiration, as well, and I wish you the same.

XO, Shannon
