It’s the second Friday of 2014 everyone! Time to accept that the holiday season is over (don’t worry, Santa will be back again in December!) These first few weeks are all about setting goals you can start working towards, so you’ll be one step closer to living your dream this time next year.
To kick start 2014, we’ve planned our first meet up in London on the 20th January, claiming Blue Monday as Happy Monday, where we can all share ways we can bring a little more happiness to business and life… because Blue Monday is so 2013.
We’ll be joined by our friends Action for Happiness on the night, so come along if you love pizza, beer and happiness as much as we do.
