If you’ve set a New Year’s resolution to break an old habit or start a new routine, today’s episode is for you. Habits are a bit different than goals and much harder to achieve. I’m going to explain why this is and share the steps you can take to start changing your habits, and your life, this year.

But before you listen, I’d love your help as we’re about to celebrate 100 episodes of Hustle & Flow!
