30-Day Challenge, RB Style
In this episode, I give the low-down on starting my own 30-day challenge. The idea of this challenge is to follow the day-by-day plan of others who described what they would do if they suddenly lost everything ... and of how they would rebuild themself and their business in 30 days. So follow me every day as I go through this challenge ... the GO! Day is Thursday. I'm going to buckle up in a 4-point restraint system and prepare for the wild ride that is ahead of me. You are invited to come along for the ride ....

I will keep everyone in the loop as I know it, but it may take until tomorrow to know any more. ~ RB
