Tuesdays With Ryz – What Are You Willing to Do?

Resolutions are made. Some are kept. Most are broken. But if you truly set a resolution, you would have resolved to do it, regardless of a holiday, date, or time of year.  But don’t beat yourself up over a resolution that may have not made it. The year hasn’t ended, has it?  You see, the great thing about resolutions is that your …
