3 Things You Must Have in This Year’s LP Planner

Posted on 1/8/16 1:00 PM


I’m a fan of the somewhat arbitrary line of delineation between the old and the new year. There is a certain excitement in the possibility found in a fresh start and I approach my brand new planner with the exuberance that others approach a holiday feast.
