2020 will be remembered for many reasons, many of which we wish we could forget. We will recall it more positively, though, at Dreams Abroad. For this was the year in which we launched our #WinningWednesday campaign, where we shared #WednesdayWisdom from friends and workmates on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter, and on our YouTube channel. Despite its name, spring cleaning can be done at any time of the year. So says Sarah Perkins Guebert. This Madrid teacher, translator, and writer covers personal growth and professional development.
