HOW TO STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF BUSY

Rachel is so much like you, sweet dreamer! She is married, a mom of two littles and works full time outside of the home.

18 BEFORE 2018

Today I’m super excited to share MY 18 goals I want to complete before 2018, and I’m challenging YOU to play along. You have until the end of 2017 to complete all 18 goals on your list.
