Making 2019 the best year ever
Every year we get excited about doing complete 180 with ourselves. Lose weight, pay off debt, earn more money, sleep more and stress less, and every year we come up short. Not this year! This year we’re taking small steps to make 2019 the best year ever to make ourselves the best people ever.
Your best year ever will be 2019
Small and simple feel boring, doesn’t it? We want dramatic and large, grander than life. That’s exciting! That impresses people, but year after year . . . for most of us . . . that fails. So, we propose – GASP! – doing for small.
Because it increases the chances that we’ll succeed. Let’s take one small step. Then, when we accomplish it, let’s take another small step and so forth. Imagine if we took one small, financial step a month for the next 12 months? By the end of the year, that’s 12 steps to enhance and improve our money situation.
Imagine the compound effect on our financial lives with those 12 steps. That, in total, is huge and would make 2019 the best year ever.

8. Use the Fabulous Social Life Calendar
When we were finally independent and as out and proud as we could be, our gay social life was as full as the time-space continuum allowed. With dinners, happy-many-hours, dancing and traveling, we were out every day of the week, except Mondays. Mondays were for recovery – even 20-something dancing queens need to rest their wings.
Living fabulously for gay men means having a fabulously gay social life, but a fabulously gay social life can mean a fantastically small bank account. That is, until, you get this Fabulous Social Life Calendar.
9. Entertainment Book
