Everybody knows that January is a big month for goals, but there's another secret month hidden in the calendar that's a powerful time to start a new goal. I call these months "slingshot months" because they fall during times of the year where there's already momentum building so they can launch your goals toward success. It took me 25 years to discover the hidden power of the second, less famous slingshot month, but you're about to learn all about it and how to make the most of it in 25 minutes.
