Today's episode is all about gratitude. Today's guest is Andrew Horn, a serial social, entrepreneur, speaker, and writer and he's in Brooklyn, New York. He's a global shaper at the World Economic Forum. He was selected for startup Boosts 33 under-33 list for 2017. He received the mayor's community service award in Washington D.C. at the age of 23.

In 2014, Andrew launched Tribute.co which the New Yorker recently called Hallmark 2.0. Tribute is what we're really going to talk about today. Andrew is on a deep mission to spread gratitude and meaningful connection in the world and is responsible for over 50 thousand tributes since he launched.

I'm extremely grateful because Andrew offered all of you, all of my podcast listeners, 50 percent off their first tribute and the code is rwpodcast-all lowercase, no spaces and it's valid through December. Go ahead listen to the podcast. He gives the code on it, but I wanted to also note that there is a great code. 50 percent off and the cost is only $99 anyway, so it's relatively inexpensive.

So in today's interview, Andrew and I discuss how Tribute was formed, how it can be used in the workplace, the science behind gratitude, and some simple systems companies can put in place to foster gratitude. After our conversation, I just felt so good. I felt uplifted and I hope you are, too.

Today's interview was a new experiment, a panel! Today on the podcast, I have 3 past guests who are wellness consultants and speakers - Laura Putnam, Rosie Ward and Brian Passon.

When I was thinking of going out on my own, I wanted to hear from those who have already done it but I only had a couple people who had gone on their own in the wellness space.

Today I bring that advice to you. Today’s guests have been on their own for at least 6 years and talk about what it took to be where they are today.

They tell us what made them decide to go out on their own, their “oh crap” moments and what keeps them going. They leave us with advice for anyone out there who’s looking to make it on their own in the wellness industry. I honestly was surprised by one their answers.

If you go to You Tube and watch the video interview, you’ll meet Brian’s friend Wendy Wellness and see one of his daughters bring him iced coffee. Brian never fails to keep it interesting. It was awesome!
