by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
There will never be more than 24 hours in a day. No matter how much we hope, wish or pray, it just can’t happen. The issue with casually brushing something off to do “later,” at an undetermined “better time,” is that it often becomes assurance it won’t get done at all.

This is also true when considering having a social media presence for business and personal.
