As we wrap up the year, it's that time again for our final episode of the year reflecting on all things 2020! I've got to be honest - I almost skipped this year's review episode because this year has been so wild, but after taking some time to reflect, I decided that this is one of the most important years to reflect on.

In this episode, I shared where I've been, what I did, how my business grew and shifted, my podcasting highlights for the year, my biggest challenges both personally and professionally this year, as well as a few of the things that I learned this year. I hope you enjoy it and I'll see you in 2021!
