The Business of Happiness
After a jarring experience on an airplane early in his career, Ted Leonsis reached a hard truth: he was successful, but not necessarily happy.
Thus began a decades-long exploration of the relationship between success and happiness and the conclusion that happiness drives success – not the other way around.
In his book, The Business of Happiness, Leonsis describes six important factors that have a vital impact on both.
From developing higher levels of empathy and self-awareness to pursuing a higher calling, he asks audiences to not pour all their energy into one person, place, or thing, and to instead live with greater purpose and intention.
