Good episode? Give it some love!
Hey, what’s going on, everyone!

You may have noticed, but the Daily New Year’s podcast disappeared unexpectedly last July. Sorry to leave you hanging!

Last year I decided to write my first ever book, Crush Your Goals!, and to do that, I decided to put the blog and podcast on hold. You can read a little bit about my adventures since then in this blog post. The whole process was only supposed to take about 90 days, but I put so much effort into this book that it took far longer.

Anyway, I’m back now, and I’m reviving the podcast. I was digging through my files and realized that I had recorded an episode with my good friend and mastermind group member, Stephen Schott, last year right before putting everything on hold.

So, I wanted to publish that post. Stephen and I both enjoy reading about personal development, psychology, health, and mindset (among dozens of other things), so this is a wide-ranging conversation with a little something for everyone.

Enjoy! I’ll see you on the inside.
