#54: Mads Friis: TAGTalk – Hacks for a meaningful life

by | Jul 22, 2020 | Personal Development

I had the pleasure of being invited to share some of my key takeaways from Growth Island for the wonderful people from TalentGarden and their audience. 


The episode delivers some of the simplest and easiest things you can try out in your own life to find more meaning and happiness.
My goal with the talk is that after you listen to this, you will take away at least one concrete thing that you will try to implement in your life.


I hope you enjoy the episode 🙂
