No, he’s not the father of happiness. But I would definitely say Andy is a cousin or a relative of it. After working selling products for a company online and learning about their mission to bring out the science of happiness, Andy went on a personal mission to discover the truths behind happiness.
His journey took him to studying positive psychology, and he learned that happiness is really a skillset. One that can be learned. If certain principles were applied, one could be happy. He’s studied some of the world's leading experts on happiness, flow, empathy, connection, human flourishing, etc. Now he has a powerful message to share and is currently the CMO of the Cook Center, whose mission it is to help children find happiness in their own lives and see that they have lives of incredible value.
Andy and I met earlier this year, and we’ve had many amazing conversations about the truths he’s learning. We’ve had a great time sharing insights and stories with each other on this podcast. Hope you enjoy!
