I DO, WE DO - EPISODE 26: 2019 Planning Retreat

Taking time away to plan for a new year is really important for us. But we understand that not everyone does it! That’s why in this episode, we’re sharing more about our 2019 planning retreat. We explain the decisions leading into us taking time away (versus staying home), our agenda for the 3 days, and how we turned goals into a timeline. It's was a time for us to relax, reflect on 2018, and set our goals and intentions for the new year.  Music “Sunny” by Bensound.com.
