    How to Organize Your Month with Trello

    Between working full-time, running a business, and studying for my MA (not to mention keeping the house clean and everything else that comes with life), my days are pretty busy.

    We've all been there. We've approached a new year with excitement about how we're going to change our life in next 12 months, and, to that end, we set big goals. But I think we all know how this ends. We give it our all for two, maybe three, weeks, only to fail before the first month is ever over. You want to know why? We don't start small.

    How is it already time for my January 2019 Personal Growth Goals post?! I have to say that time flies by so much faster when you run your own business. There's so much you want to accomplish and, with every passing month, it feels like nothing gets done. However, on the personal growth side of things, I had some big wins in December and I'm so excited to share them with you!
