It's Christmas Day! We've finally made it to the end of 2020 so I wanted to take a moment to recap what a year it's been on the show. We've had so many great guests sharing their "And"–from rollerblading to NASCAR to ju-jitsu and even two volunteer firefighters! 

Thank you for subscribing to this podcast to hear about the "And" of other professionals and how that applies to their work. If you or someone you know has an "And"–that hobby or passion or interest outside of work–please reach out because I'd love to share this with everyone listening. 

There will be a slight change in format going forward with a little more of me sharing what I've learned from the research sprinkled with some more follow-ups about how the book has impacted workplace cultures.

Speaking of the book, What's Your "And"?, the audio version will be coming in the first half of 2021! The exact date is pending–just like everything else in the world. If you prefer the paperback or e-reader version, the links are at WhatsYourAnd.com. And if you have the book, please take a minute to leave a few sentences as an Amazon review.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
