Today we're talking about curiosity. (Huzzah!) Buzzword or not, there's a lot that goes into this word. In today's episode, we define curiosity as being connected to comfort zones, our willingness to try new things, facing fears, and putting ourselves in the position where we are open to growing, learning, and experiencing. We even go so far as to say that curiosity is the keystone for evolving in our lives. So sit back, take a listen, and embrace curiosity in your life.

We want to hear from you!

Are you a curious person? Where has that way of showing up in the world benefited you and/or pushed you out of your comfort zone?
