Weekly Challenge #2: Un-Brand It

A new weekly challenge will be revealed on Mondays. This month’s challenges will be devoted to Savings. *** Labels tend to be a focal point in our society.

The thought of transforming or improving one’s self is overwhelming. So much to do – where to begin? Where to find the time? There’s no immediate all-encompassing solution. This is where the phrase “baby steps” comes in handy. Each week I will pick one “Weekly Challenge” (or as I like to call them, “Weakly Challenges”) [...] Go to Post
