2013 – Building Up Confidence

Well, the end of 2013 is upon us, which means a new and exciting year awaits. Last year, in 2012, I took a leap of faith. This year, 2013, it was all about building up confidence. Next year, 2014, it’ll be all about execution. The first half of 2013 I was still fumbling around like…

The End of the Beginning
