      Hi Marcin! Thanks for dropping by! Do you have your blog set up? I must be in module 3 also but these days I’m really overwhelmed. I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew: full-time day job, household with three children AND these goals of mine… I fully agree, its not easy. What’s difficult for you?
