I took a little time off podcasting at the end of 2022 to spend time with family and reflect on the upcoming year. It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else around us is doing, so it’s important to me to think about how I can share and empower you going forwards. I always pick a word to focus on for the year, to serve as an anchor for my goals. Typically I’ve picked words that channeled what I wanted to achieve professionally, but this time I wanted to focus on something a little different. I thought about what I truly need to create my “best life” and one word kept coming up again and again: connection. Here’s to finding new, better ways to connect with each other in 2023.
