Our 2016 Resolutions

Yeah yeah, New Year’s resolutions are a bit cliche. Lose weight, get smarter, all of that jazz. However, these are more than just resolutions (though they include losing weight and getting smarter) they are also goals. Very achievable goals we have thought about for the last 2 weeks. We want these goals to better serve ourselves and better serve all of you.
