February is all about love. We even have a day dedicated to it this month. So take a moment to tell the people you care about how much they mean to you. I’m not talking just romantic or familial love — it extends beyond that.

Most of you are probably wondering why on earth I have waited until the last week in January to post out a January newsletter. To be honest, most of you have been bombarded with the good will of New Year’s resolutions.
