Ready or not, 2017 is here and if it is anything like 2016, at the blink of an eye it will be over and done with. So that means it is time for us to “Boss up” and lead! Now when I say lead, I don’t necessarily mean leading a group of people or a team of individuals. While that is also a component of leading, we are focusing on being a leader of your own life. In fact, one of the key elements to being a successful and effective leader of a team of individuals is first knowing how to effectively lead your own life.
