Leah’s Weekly Round-Up // January 3, 2013

Happy New Year! Did you set any goals for 2013, personally or professionally? I’ll share a couple of my goals with you.

1. Attend at least one industry event each month.

2. Do one informational interview with someone each month.

3. Continue to use this blog as a place to share information and write about what I’m learning as I try to navigate life as a busy young professional.
