Part of the Cool Sites weekly series!
It’s that time of year when we reflect upon what we have achieved personally and professionally. The first week of January is when I usually begin mapping out these goals and delineating my plan of action for achieving these goals. In a later post, I will share with you how I try to accomplish my goals and what I find works best for me. This is the first year I am adding social media goals. If you are still planning your goals, then these sites and resources may provide you with some food for thought.
