How To Be A Better Person with Kate Hanley

By Kate Hanley

Start your day with one simple thing you can do in the next 24 hours to grow into your best self. More people than ever admit that they want to be a better person (in fact, it has recently topped the list of most popular New Year's resolution--a first!). The How to Be a Better Person podcast with Kate Hanley is based on my book of the same name, breaks this big, amorphous goal into doable daily bites. My mission is to give you one year's worth of small but mighty ways to consciously evolve into the person you know you're capable of being. Let's do this, together!
