In 2024, I am leveling up my planning game – no time for second best. This year, it’s all about goals and executing them. My big move is launching my mobile app, and my strategy is breaking it down into 12-week goals. Finances are a different ball game now, so I’m meticulously tracking and budgeting. Working with a designer for the app has been a game-changer, and implementing the designs has been a grind, but it’s been a fun grind. And hey, NYC in winter is actually pretty peaceful and productive. Cheers to making things happen! 🚀📱💰

Breaking down my yearly goal of launching my app into manageable 12-week goals has been the secret to my success.
