Happy New Year!

Let me be one of the first to wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!

As I am writing this, I am looking forward to the new year. 2013 had it’s ups and downs – buying and selling homes, expanding my business, and seeing some work slowdown for my business as well.

For the new year, I am determined to push forward to expand my business further, hopefully picking up more clients and projects. My next goal is to do more with my YouTube channels – improving quality on my videos on both channels.

We have several projects we want to do for our new house. The first will be to build a deck or patio in our back yard. Right now we have nothing more than a small cement stoop to walk out on, and our grill is sitting to the side of that in the rock border around our lawn. Once we have that in place, we can build a better “doggie door” right into the wall of our living room for the dogs, rather than have one in our sliding door. It’ll be better insulated than the current one we have, which should help save on our heating bills too.

We’re also hoping to be able to fly to Europe next Summer. The plan is to fly into Munich, Germany and spend some time with my family, and then take a train to San Marino, Italy and stay a few days, and then continue on to Rome. Ultimately we’d like to fly back home from Rome (rather than make our way back up to Munich to fly home). We’ll see if we can get all that arranged or not.

What are your goals / plans for 2014? Anything exciting? Please share in the comments section below!
