It’s a new year and with that comes a fresh start, a chance to do things differently. We’ve spent the last several weeks welcoming some new members into our private Facebook group, and as always the discussion has been riveting.

And for some, they realize that pushing themselves to far too often is not sustainable.
So we wanted to share our top 5 tips for working smarter in 2018.
