My fondest childhood gift memory was receiving a wooden art box with cubbies – I spent hours organizing all of my art supplies in that box. Is it coincidental that Santa gave my daughter an Art Box as well? I think not!!

I’m taking an online class by Lisa Sonora Beam called The Art of Strategy: Creating A Strategic Planner.
