We are so excited to announce that we have a very special guest writer on this week's blog post, Tess Koman!

She's the distinguished author of The Best Damn Answers to Life's Hardest Questions (which has really made my life decisions so much easier to make T B H).

We had our Instagram followers ask Tess their Hardest Questions and Tess gave her Best Damn Answers which made me laugh so hard I snorted. Sorry co-workers. 

Check them out below and make sure to pick up a copy of The Best Damn Answers to Life's Hardest Questions ASAP. (Pssst, it makes a perfect holiday gift, wink wink, nudge nudge)

Q: How can I improve on myself other than just practicing what I would like to improve on? @sondos.elbershawi

A: You can read things written by people very different than you and listen to what they have to say. Otherwise, you can incorporate cheese into every meal. That might help.
