That’s why I am going to regularly—once a week at least—provide a link to other websites that are helping to increase the quality of my life, others lives, and make a difference on the planet. In other words, I believe visiting these websites on a regular basis (just like this one!) can help you create a SMART Life 365. Continue reading →
