Brief Conversation...with BIG WINS!

Some days it is the QUICK CONVERSATIONS that give us the BIGGEST BANG.
Too many people believe they have to do a ton of work or spend a lot of time in search of guidance.

'What Makes You Happy' podcast host Jake Pearson and I spent just under 7 minutes together...and dropped nugget after nugget to help YOU to 'see' the opportunities to put more happiness, joy, kindness, love, visualization, etc into your day.

Like I said: less than 7 minutes.
You've got time.

My recommendation: Stack them up and binge-listen to as many episodes as you can fit into your schedule.

This show is THAT GOOD!
