Don’t even get me started on how the hell it’s even April already. I feel like I only wrote my 2019 goals post a few weeks ago and yet, here we are – a quarter of the way through the year in the blink of an eye. As one of my goals for this year was to introduce a quarterly a check-in, in order to keep myself accountable and share my progress with you all, I thought I’d kick April off by reviewing where I’m up to with my goals.
