    2022 Year in Review

    2022 Year in Review

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! As the end of 2022 approaches, it's time to sit down and reflect on the last year and to share what's to come in 2023. This is one of my favorite podcast traditions and I'm excited to share with you how 2022 went for me, including what it was like being on maternity leave, how work has shifted for me since having a baby, the juggling act of mothering and running a business, some of the highlights of 2022, as well as the the biggest challenges and struggles that I faced. I also look ahead to 2023 to share some of the plans I'm most excited about, as well as some big changes happening with the podcast and in my business.
