This year, I’m doing something I don’t normally do over the Christmas holidays.
I’m taking a two-week hiatus from training clients, teaching classes, designing programs and creating new blog content. Two-weeks to recharge and relax and recover from a super busy and fulfilling fall.
I want to take a moment and thank you for visiting and commenting and sharing my content. It may sound cliche, but it really does make me happy when you tell me I’ve written something that inspires and motivates and educates you.
Since they’ll be no new blog posts until January the 6th, I leave you with my favourite posts of 2014. Regardless of whether you’re a new reader or a long-time supporter of this site, you’re sure to find something worth reading (or re-reading) below.
Something in the list tickle your fancy? Use the ‘sharing’ buttons at the bottom of the post to email, Tweet or share on social media with your own friends and followers.
