If you're like 90% of the world, you are coming into this new year with ideas, plans, and goals....otherwise known as "resolutions".

Maybe it's because this is a leap year, giving us one extra day to be happy and successful. Or, maybe it's simply because the Steelers are playing the Browns and i love football. Who knows.

I am asking my friends and followers to visit these people, "like" their facebook pages, follow them on Twitter...whatever you can do. At the end of the month, I hope that I will have helped to somehow improve the lives and businesses of these people as they have done for me. So, without further adieu, here are the people I love:
