Friday Finds — That’s a wrap!

Sponsored by iSpring

“New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as new chances come your way.” 
— Oscar Auliq-Ice

Happy Friday! I hope this year end newsletter finds you well and that you’re feeling good as we wrap up another year.

I enjoy looking back on the previous year and considering how to do better. To achieve that with this newsletter, I need your feedback on how I’m doing.

I’d really appreciate it if instead of reading this newsletter as usual this week, you would take the time to respond to the survey below (Feedback is truly a gift so consider it a belated Christmas present to me.)

Thanks in advance for your help. I hope you have a fantastic New Year’s holiday and an even better 2023!

As always, thanks for reading.

What I’m Listening To: I’ve never been a big fan of New Years Eve parties, so today I’m listening to this nice “New Years Chill” playlist which kicks off with one of the best songs ever while I stay home and skip the “crazies” out there running around tonight.
