Look, Feel, Perform Better 2 Week Check In
We’re just about two weeks into the Look Feel and Perform Better Challenge. By now you should be finding your groove with some of the guidelines and hopefully realizing some of these things aren’t as hard as you would have anticipated. Below I’ve listed the basic parameters of the challenge. Please post to comments which components you’re doing the best with (and why) as well as which you’re struggling with (and why).
