The best advice I ever got

Never stop learning, because things are constantly changing. And let go of perfection and just get it done!

My three goals for 2018

1. Raise the level of awareness of the importance of good, old-fashioned play.

2. Extend the reach of ASTRA to additional markets that recognize and value the importance of toys and play.

3. Stay focused in a world full of distractions.
