Episode #52 // New Years Resolutions

"The more that I buffer the commitments I have, the easier it is for those things to get done."
- Paul Jarvis

Happy New Year! This is the 52nd episode of Being Boss, which means we’ve been podcasting for a whole year! Today we’re talking about New Years resolutions, what went well in 2015, what sucked, and what we’re looking forward to accomplishing in 2016. We decided to bring on our boss boyfriends, Paul Jarvis and Jason Zook, to chat with us about this topic!
