I recorded this episode with special recurring guest, Rhonda Thain, way back in December when Josh took off for his LA trip. But for some odd reason I've never gotten around to releasing it (that reason could be because I am a master procrastinator).

So a thousand apologies to you for withholding this episode! But you're in for a treat because this one is JAM-PACKED with helpful words from Rhonda. We hit on some topics related to how to work better like:

  • Keeping the creative juices flowing when battling exhaustion
