Attorney Suzanne ShinnOkay. So here we are. Another new year and many of us hear all the noise in our minds about what it’s going to take to make this year the most successful year ever!

Our minds bark out “if only I had done…” or “I can’t believe I didn’t…..” Or, even worse, I call them the “threatening three: woulda, shoulda, coulda”. You know what I’m talking about.
