Oh, hey. This is awkward.

You came here to listen to a podcast, only to be rudely interrupted by a popup. 

I won’t blame you for grunting in annoyance, clicking the little x in the corner and getting back to the business of listening to a great conversation with an interesting guest (or me rambling about something).

But while I have your attention, I’d love to give you my Ultimate Guide to Gratitude

Why? Because it’s been scientifically proven that a gratitude practice has a tremendous amount of benefit. Emotionally, mentally, physically. Improved relationships and job performance. Increased satisfaction and joy. You know, important stuff. And I happen to be on a mission to help people thrive, so giving you this only makes sense.

Anyway, grab a copy if you’re inclined. You won’t see this particular popup again. Because the only thing more annoying than a popup, is seeing the same damn one over and over again.
