2017 is nearly here, which means it time to make some goals! Most of us love a good resolution, but it can be easy to find ourselves totally overwhelmed. Here are 40 ideas to get the wheels spinning about how to tackle the new year!

Before you pop that champagne, make a plan and write it down. I have a feeling that you are going to do amazing things this year.

7. Join a mastermind. 

8. Budget for a business coach or class.

9. Create a new, totally rad opt in for your email list.
