Today’s episode features international best-selling author and award-winning film producer, Chris Gardner. Gardner’s autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness became a New York Times #1 bestseller and is also the inspiration for the critically acclaimed film “The Pursuit of Happyness” for which Will Smith received the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Academy Award nominations for his performance. Chris has a fascinating story and was a huge inspiration behind the start of Wes’ research on the relationship between money and happiness.
Wes and Chris discuss how bringing his book to life on the big screen with Will Smith changed his life, why he thinks many people are afraid to realize their dreams, the three most important decisions you can make, the concept of Atomic Time, and the inspiration behind his newest book, ‘Permission to Dream’.
