A Year Together! All 2019 Tip Tuesdays in One So You Can Rehearse and Prepare for a Productive 2020!

Dear Amped Blog readers! Thanks for being here today, December 31st, the last day of this wonderful year. But most of all thanks for following our Tip Tuesday appointments throughout the year. We’ve shared 51 tips with you this year and we sincerely hope they’ve been useful to you. (We made an exception to the weekly schedule in March, when the great Amped Replay was launched, that’s why they’re not 52.) We had positive feedback from you all in terms of visits and messages, so I’m excited to announce that Tip Tuesdays will continue in 2020!
