JH Podcast 16: How to Bring More Awesome into Your Life, with Neil Pasricha

—  found in  Well-being  —

We interviewed Neil Pasricha, a New York Times Bestselling author and award-winning blogger of 1000 Awesome Things. When his marriage fell apart and his best friend took his own life 10 years ago, his life was quickly turned upside down. But, everything he did following these traumatic events has transformed him into the person he is today.
