Summer is Here!

Who's with me? I am so excited for summer! I'm looking forward to hanging out with my two-year-old and not having to wake up super early. This is this first summer that I will not be attending any conferences, but that doesn't mean that I will not be learning. Summer is a great time to reflect and get rejuvenated for next year. Here are a few free ways to stay relevant and to keep learning this summer. I have more, but I thought 3 ideas would be enough. If we can just tackle one. #summergoals
