One of the biggest lessons I’m learning this year is the importance of completion, of finishing what you start. Creating new things is a type of high all its own. The thinking, the planning, the moment when everything comes together and it’s better than you ever imagined – that’s the exciting part, at least for me.

Some of you may remember it took me years to even share my real name, so it’s been quite a long journey towards this modest goal.
