Staying the Course.

I’ve never been good at articulating my goals. It’s a self-doubt problem, but I don’t think it sets me apart from most other people. It does set me apart from the people I admire and whose ethic I try to take and apply to myself. I start of strong, with an idea of what I... Continue Reading →
