EP 69: 2019 In Review

Happy New Year! 2019 was such a full and exciting year for Jeremy + Audrey. They traveled a ton,  celebrated the release of A Love Letter Life, Ember hit huge milestones, and so much more! AND there are a few surprises in this episode you may not have known. They are excited to take you BTS of their 2019! 

In case you missed it, the podcast is moving to a new schedule for the next few months, while Jeremy + Audrey enjoy some time off before and with their baby boy! You will hear from them every other week … but don’t worry it isn’t forever! They will back with weekly episodes before you know it. 

 

In this episode you’ll hear: 

  • How they track their goals and why they do a mid-year check in. 
  • The importance of having a word for the year, not only for yourself but also for your family. 
  • The highlights from 2019 for their family, the business, and themselves. 
  • BTS moments from book tour (did you know Jeremy was hit by a car??) 
  • SURPRISE! They have a new book coming out later this year! 
  • The new podcast schedule (for now) while Jeremy + Audrey settle into being a family of 4.
