We are only a few months away from the new year. I can’t believe it!  If you are anything like me you still have a few goals left to accomplish before the ball drops in Time Square.

Maybe you’ve stayed focused all year and are sure to check everything off your list in the time remaining. 

Or maybe you are like the millions of others who started strong, but at some point during the year, just lost your momentum.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s easy to fall behind with all of the other responsibilities you probably have. It’s not too late though. Yes, we’ve had more than eight months go by, but you still have time left to get a few things done. 

My guest today knows a thing or two about getting things done. She shares how she went beyond having bright ideas and zero follow through to writing a series of children’s book!
