I'm turning 30 this year : Here's my 30 before 30 list

When it came time to update my 1, 3, 5 year goals, I began to think about the fact that I am turning 30 this year. My 1 year goals quickly became a "30 things to do before I turn 30" list. I wanted to keep them as obtainable as possible. This list is less of a "bucket list" and more of a "stop putting this shit off" type of list. Below you'll find descriptions of each item above. I will be updating them with my progress throughout the year.

One Year With Instagram

REVIEW : Moo Business Cards

About.me recently offered 50 free business cards from Moo.
