What are you excited about for 2022? As we head into this next chapter, it’s a great time to learn from last year and set intentions for the future. 

The past year has been transformational for the world and it served as a wake up call for many people. The impact of the global pandemic has caused us to question the fulfillment of our careers, readjust our priorities, and ultimately look at life with a new perspective. Setting intentions for 2022 is a great way we can all maintain alignment with our authentic selves moving forward. 

In this episode, you will hear part 2 of a wonderful conversation with some of my closest girlfriends; Ann Marie Esparza Smith, Veronica Franco, and Diana Gallo. Last episode, we discussed the lessons we learned from 2021 and today we are talking about our intentions for 2022. Throughout this episode, you will learn each of our intentions for this next year, reflections on our personal development journeys, how we are living to serve others, and so much more. I hope this conversation inspires you to reassess the priorities in your life and set intentions for how you can best approach this year. Let’s handle our shit and set great intentions for 2022!
