Happy New Year's Eve. It's that time of year of looking back, reflecting and most importanly looking forward. To look forward I took a look back at some of the highlights of 40:20 Vision this year. I won't call this a best of ...but here are twelve 40-something words of wisdom to provide perspective!
1. Have You Looked At All Your Options?

First of all, sorry for my English but I'm writing from Paris (France). I'm 26. I still live with my parents due to a lack of money as I have been working on my own business for the past year. I love my business idea, doing marketing and learning new skills. Professionals in the in industry I have met are excited about my business model and I already have some clients willing to work ... keep reading...
