This week was a great opportunity to recover from the holiday, reflect on the past year and plan for the year ahead. Hopefully you were able to take some time for yourselves and do the same. You’ve probably heard by now that we’ve got some big (and exciting) changes coming in early 2017. Thank you so much for your support and readership. All of you keep us motivated to work harder, be more creative and come up with fresh ideas. The best is yet to come. Have a happy and safe New Year’s.
