Team Talroo Reflections and Resolutions

By

'Tis the season for reflections and resolutions. There is something so refreshing about a changing year. It's a blank slate, another opportunity to try something different or to better ourselves. This year, we asked some members of Team Talroo what their highlight of 2018 was, and what their resolutions for 2019 are. They also each shared a playlist for you to enjoy in the new year.
