2018: A Year In Review | 27 Years & 82 Days

There was once a time in my life when I prayed to be where I’m at now. The older I get the more I see, life is about the journey and not the destination. Life comes with a lot of ups and downs and I saw my fair share of both this year. 2018 has been an up and down rollercoaster ride and through all the twist and turns i’m still here able to write my last blog of the year.

This year has been nothing short of phenomenal, professionally. Personally i’ve dealt with a lot. I’ve lost two people i’ve cared about deeply my entire life. I didn’t know how strong I was until I had no other choice. I had to pick myself up and be the calm in a storm for my clients, while dealing with my own storms internally.

I really can’t thank each and everyone of my clients enough for allowing my team and I to be apart of your day. I sincerely thank you all. All the smiles, the tears, and the laughs, thank you for allowing me to document it. It means the world to me.

Keep your Family and Loved ones close. Happy New Year

-Will
