47. My husband’s take on setting vision and goals together

Want to live life with more purpose? 5 years ago we stumbled upon our first ‘life on purpose’ conversation and since then we spend time each New Year to talk about how the year went and what we want in the year to come.  

I asked Conor if we could have some of this conversation in front of the microphone and share it on the podcast. . . .
