Yesterday, I shared my list of "What Didn't Work in 2018" (an idea from Emily P. Freeman). So today I'm going to show you the companion list: What Did Work in 2018. Because I'm a big fan of symmetry and even numbers (and the rest of the neurotic things lol) there are 10 just like… Continue reading What did work
