touch millions" - Donna Lang, Business

Looking to learn some fast happiness before the book comes out? I publish weekly columns summarizing my most poignant findings in The Atlanta 100, an eNewsletter comprising of precisely 100-word articles.

ATL 100 Call-to-action



70 million working Millennials will define the future of business. Yet 63% of employers report struggling to hire and retain Millennial talent. Don’t be a statistic. I can help your members and staff become fluent in the millennial’s working mindset, and help your millennials maximize their potential at work. Happiness has a guaranteed return on investment.
