Make your New Year’s resolution stick

As some of you may know, I have just completed a post-grad certificate in IT Business Analysis (told you I don’t just travel!). I love it when I can take things that I learned in the classroom and apply them directly to everyday life.

Keep reading if you like to spice up your little corner too.
