In our business and in our personal lives we need to think about what and who we want to represent on our own social platforms from Facebook to LinkedIn, Instagram to TikTok.

In this hyper-connected world, when we may have hundreds or even thousands of Facebook “friends” why do so many of us feel so lonely?

This week’s episode is the second in the Get Happy series which is all about un...

In this episode, we're going to open up your perspective on judgment and shine a new light on these idea...
We have become a divided and heightened society.
Whether it’s the way we view politics or our beliefs around COVID or thoughts around virtual learning or the Black Lives Matter movement the world has gotten excessively more divisive with opinions becoming polar opposites.
