144: Let Go of FOMO & Embrace the JOMO

I am truly ecstatic for this season of the podcast, which goes along with my book, The Joy of Missing Out. In season 12, we’ll be doing something that we’ve never done before: a call-in style episode where you’ll get to hear from women from all walks of life about finding their JOMO. Today, I preface the season by diving into the word “joy” and what it truly means. I chat about letting go of two of life’s biggest hurdles: busy and worry. I dive into savoring the moments in life that bring you joy, taking the time to find yourself and exploring who you are and what you love to do.
