The Goal

I will read at least 3 articles a day for 5 days (recent articles related to online business topics) by making/following a daily schedule that reserves 2 hours each day for finding reliable sources online and reading the articles. This will help me stay up-to-date with current information related to the online business world by 11/3/23.
