January 15, 2020 - Vol 2, Issue 1
Welcome, year 2020!

Just like the year is beginning, I would like to ask Are You Ready to Begin too?
If you want a fresh start, why not do it now as the year starts?

Remember, the first step to start fresh is to do things differently. If you know you have to do it, then JUST DO IT!

Events are only a small part in your development, from a new insight to making a new connection, sometimes they help you make the next move.
Bienvenido sea el año 2020!

¿Estas listo para empezar igual que empieza el año? Si buscas un nuevo comienzo, ¿porque no comenzar ahora junto con el inicio del año?

Recuerda que el primer paso para cambiar es cambiar lo que hacemos. Si sabes que tienes que hacerlo, simplemente HAZLO.

Los eventos solo son una pequeña parte del crecimiento, de obtener nuevas ideas hasta crear conexiones, aveces estos te ayudan a dar el siguiente paso.
Let's start fresh,
Ana Patiño
