I did it!!!!

That picture you see is me celebrating achieving my New Year's resolution for 2015. At the start of the year, I set myself the goal of working on average 20 hours a week building my business, EVERY WEEK, for the whole year (while still working a regular job).

As soon as I press that key it's done. I've metaphorically stepped out of my bedroom and into the world around me with a big sign saying, 'This is what I believe in. This is what I'm capable of. This is my dream.'
