Curious and Curiouser Podcast


Dec 19, 2017

Oh hey! This week’s episode will be the last one of 2017.

 

What? I know! But Tracey and Cayly need a little vacation. Plus, this gives you time to catch up on all the episodes you missed these past several months so that you’re all ready for the new season starting on January 3rd of 2018.

 

To wrap up the year, Tracey and Cayly are talking all about New Year’s resolutions. Should you make them? Do they make them? Are resolutions actually helpful?

 

In this conversation, the ladies offer some advice on entering into next year on a positive note, explore some of the reasons resolutions don’t stick, and explore what you can do instead of setting resolutions that might actually set you up for success in the coming months.

 

As always, reviews and 5-star ratings are appreciated, so please hop over to the show page in iTunes and tell the world how much you love the show!

 

Thanks, friends! Happy Holidays! We’ll see you again on January 3rd!
