Because now I’m only getting older and I feel like 30 is around the corner… (only other twenty two year olds probably agrees)  But now that I’m getting older, I’m hopefully more wiser, and I thought why not share twenty two things I’ve learned over the past few years.   1 LIVE FOR NOW!

And if that does not make you extremely excited and nervous at the same time then I don’t know because as much as I like sales I can’t stand the chaos that comes with it.

I decided to ask the ladies to give…
