While everyone else fights over whether this year or next is the beginning of a new decade, we’ll help you focus your attention on the REAL issue: how awesome you’ll plan to be in 2020 and beyond. Bestselling author and TED speaker Neil Pasricha joins us today to tell us stories about his amazing mother’s search for awesome, his own lessons from past failures, and best of all, the history of the ellipses. They’re hopefully the inspiration you’ll need to kick off the Roaring 20’s with a bang.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions? We’ll share some that were recently featured in a top publication during our first headline, plus some ideas from our team about how you can make them actionable (the most important part of any plan).
Of course, we’ll save time to throw out the Haven Life Line AND save some time for Doug’s incredible Roaring 20’s trivia.
We all hope you’re as excited about a great New Year as we are here in the basement! Mom sends her love!
