2019 has flown by, hasn’t it?
As the year comes to a close I’ve been engaged in tracking my progress, my goals, and my stats from 2019 as well as looking ahead to determine what I want to accomplish and what I want to offer my readers and clients in 2020. You’ve most likely been reflecting upon your year and the year ahead, too. Tis the season, right?
If you’re anything like me and you aren’t even sure how December snuck up on us, you’re probably also wondering what you might’ve missed this past year that you didn’t have the time to take notice of. In that spirit, I decided to do a year-end roundup of all my best blog posts, resources, and free tools from 2019.
I can’t catch you up on everything that’s gone on in the world (or even our little nonprofit corner of it), but I CAN at least make sure you have a convenient place to get all the best articles and goodies from CNPS. Hopefully this will set you up for a wildly successful New Year!
