Oh my god you guys, I am so excited about this week’s podcast guest. I have the one and only Gretchen Rubin on the show and I could not feel more privileged. Gretchen is the author of the number one New York Times bestseller, The Happiness Project, which is just one of her many books that I love.
She is quite the expert on habits and shares so much knowledge around consistency and decision making that will make your brain explode with a-ha moments throughout our chat. We covered countless topics and I know you’re going to be wowed by her, just like I was.
Join me this week for a mind-blowing conversation with Gretchen Rubin. If you’re ready for 2019 to be the year of ultimate happiness, health, productivity, and creativity, this is the episode for you.
