Take time to create a robust vision for your New Year. As January 1, 2020, rapidly approaches, it's important to look toward what's just around the corner. Now is a perfect time to not only examine yourself but also your businesses and your clients. We're not just talking about goals. Today, we invite you to go deeper into your calling. Not just the "what" but "how" to go about it. Plus, "who" you need to become in the New Year. So start w/ clean slate. And approach New Year's goals a bit differently.

 

Let God take His Divine Paintbrush and paint a new vision!

  • Dare to dream differently about not only what He wants for you, but also what he wants for the people you are called to serve.
  • Take time to think through what you need to stop doing, so you'll have time and mental space to do what you are called to well.
  • Dare to do different things as you uncover how your vision can be realized.
  • Redefine who you are and who you need to become, so the vision can come to fruition.
