On a personal note, woohoo, it’s time for more #JOMO this weekend. The JOY of ‘missing out’ – really, I’m not missing out on anything. Ha! I’m unplugging from tech to plug in to nature. It’s so amazing; I find the more rigorous I am about taking time to nurture my personal life and self-care, the more successful my business efforts become. Love that!
