As I ring in the new year I like to spend some time reflecting on the previous year and making plans for the future. These plans I call my dreams, for without them we are boring.
A couple of years ago I went to a wonderful workshop with Rosie Molinary, Visions SPARKS. It was a wonderful and creative way to set new business goals for that year. In her work shop we created a 'Vision Board', something I had never done. For those of you not familiar with a vision board, it is an actual foam board with cut out pictures and words that represent your goals for the coming year. Now you might think it sounds a little crazy and time consuming which I did until I actually started working on it. The process really makes you think about yourself and what you would like to accomplish. It also makes you really think about your WORD for the year.

I have decided to keep my original 'vision board' and add to it every year. I feel like these original words describe me, goals an whats important to me in life.
