Well, 2018 has now been and gone. Some would say good riddance. And isn't it weird that whenever a year draws to a close the phrase you hear most is something along the lines of "Here's to an even better 2019"? It's difficult to say what would make 2019 better than 2018, but by looking… Continue reading Happy New Year! Here’s how 2019 can be better.
