USEFUL WEBSITES

Amanda suggests asking yourself “What do I want to accomplish this week?” She says not to stress if what you set out to accomplish does not happen that day, just make sure to fit it into your week. Ideally you need to go with with the flow and do what works for you.

If you have questions or would like more information, Amanda would love to hear from you. Please contact us to request her e-mail address.
