  1. Hello Brandon,

    I listened to this episode this morning and it had some really good points. The reality of death certainly caught my attention. It’s true, death is the ultimate fear so placing other fears next to it should really help to put things into perspective.

    This episode actually runs parallel to an episode on another podcast episode from Blogcast FMthat I listened to earlier this week. It featured an interview with Shawn Achor, the author of The Happiness Advantage. I’m curious if you’ve read this book as it’s on my tentative reading list.

    Keep up the great work, I’m looking forward to hearing more from you.


    • Piotr,

      Thanks for the great comments! So glad that the Happiness episode resonated with you. Everything I cover are things I’ve dealt with in my life, so in many ways it is like you are walking alongside of my journey. 🙂

      Yes, Shawn Achor is one person I am currently researching on Happiness. A LOT of great stuff from him on this topic. I reached out to him for a possible interview, but he is incredibly booked right now. Hopefully in the future.

      What sort of things did he say that really resonated with you?
