2020 in a Nutshell: Who’s da boss now?

You may have seen it developing over the past months, but now the message is loud and clear.

There may be some new offers on the table, but look out for hidden clauses and added responsibilities.

2020 in a Nutshell: Bring it on!

You are ready to embrace the new and unexplored. Let’s face it, the ‘same old, same old’ really didn’t work for you in 2019, so what’s to lose?

2020 in a Nutshell: Build stronger foundations.

Yes, you thrive on change and variety, but at your inner core you understand that having a secure base to come back to is worth a million little escapades. This is your year to create that base, alone, or with a significant other. It may be a home, or your own project, or just a few pounds stashed away in the bank. Keep your focus and goals become reachable.

2020 in a Nutshell: Learn to loosen up a bit.

Much as your virtues of reliability and attention to detail are appreciated, you can be a tad boring to those who first meet you. Before you go into a flurry of denial, think of ways you can actually learn to kick back, get creative and have fun. Then see what happens. Singles may find romance in store for 2020.

2020 in a Nutshell: Family comes first.

Lessons learned in the past 12 months can be useful in 2020. Life isn’t always easy, or entertaining, and this year some responsibilities have to be faced.

2020 in a Nutshell: Communicate and win.

Your razor mind and insight are your trump card this year.
