Reflecting on 2017 while moving into 2018

If we were to list the many things we would like to accomplish in 2018 the words would spill off the page into an endless listing of dreams and goals. However, we will attempt to put our thought into one phrase. In 2018 we would like to see more dreams and goals come to fruition thus overflowing with success, health, wealth, and prosperity along with inspiring a mass of many through our work in arts, entertainment, and education. We would also like to see more love being honestly displayed and distributed towards individuals including oneself, from creating time and developing itineraries that encompass self-care, meditation, embracing fearless giving and transparent communication skills.

The most important lesson that we learned this year was how to cultivate a high functioning support system that yields to resilience and facilitates constructive outcomes. We were grateful for having the opportunity to start new ventures in 2017, however, we were on the road every weekend which left little time for relaxation. Nonetheless, through our traveling trials came various triumphs comprised of the research Lauretta engaged in and therefore compiled her family history of doctors that thrived in the eighteen and nineteen hundreds, Civil War, and Reconstruction period. LeeAnet maintained a busy schedule also working for a Broadway production company that won three Tony Awards this season, and finishing her book “Momager: What it takes.”

We are heading into 2018 with books, tv projects, theatre productions and more on deck. Meditation, prayer, and building an excellent support network will allow us to find a superlative work-life balance. Happy New Year!
