Change Is In The Air (originally posted 30 July 2013)
*Originally posted on Justin's blog on 30 July 2013* It's been awhile since I've been on this thing.  For the past couple months I've had a sever case of writers block that not only extended itself to this, but it's also crept into my ability to write creatively....

One of the things that we are passionate about is that we never stop learning. One of Justin’s favorite ways to consume new knowledge is through reading. Here, you’ll find books that we have been helpful for personal or professional development as well as books that are just fun escapes.

Can’t read? Audible and books on audio are a great option and one that Shawna utilizes frequently.
