As 2011 comes to a close, I hope that the good things about your year outweigh the bad. It seems to me like the perfect time to say thank you for the great things, move on from the bad things, and dream of future things.

I have gone back through the comments on all the 2011 blogs to compile a list of requested topics and videos that I have not done yet. I hope to attend more event/show venues to network with some more of you in person this year. If you have any requests for topics, videos, etc., let me know.
Have a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!!
In all of our pasts lay our futures. By our own hands and decisions we will be damned and we will be saved. Whatever you do, put forth your best effort even if all you're doing is chasing a never-ending rainbow. You might never reach the end of it, but along the way you will meet people who will mean the world to you and make memories that will keep you warm on even the coldest nights. — Soteria
