My Goals for 2018

When Doug Purnel (blog) and I became accountability partners, we had to define our goals and share them in order to keep each other accountable.  I wrote out my goals, but hadnt shared them until now (its March).  One of my goals was to find a new job and when I submitted 1 application in January, I didnt expect it to be the job I accepted (and then move out of state and start my new job all within 1 month)!

Now that things have calmed down, I am publishing my goals to everyone.  I will update this main post with links to the other blog posts I create as I complete these goals.
