This has been a crazy year for me, lots of ups and downs emotionally but most interesting in the work world. I am, if anything, cliche so I thought I would do a quick year in review and talk about my goals for 2012. Why should you care about my goals in 2012, why wouldn’t you?

This is where you and your wife need to have a plan and work together.
