    Key idea 1 of 5

    Human connections, not cash, are what give value to your life. Seek to make your connections last!

    How do you feel after a long day at the office? Washed up, beat down, in need of some R&R?

    So many of us expect to feel satisfied by just earning a paycheck. But there’s no denying the old cliche that money alone can’t buy happiness.

    As a young IT entrepreneur, the author earned 22 times more than the national average salary. But did this fact make him 22 times happier, or 22 times healthier, than the average person?

    Not at all. In fact, he suffered from stress-related kidney problems, at just 23 years old.

    Sure, we all want a job that pays well. But a job that brings in six figures may actually be distracting you from what your true priorities are.

    While the author’s online ticket sales company was successful and brought in serious profits, the constant work and stress pulled the author further and further away from his original goal: to create a business that made him happy.

    Many people, especially entrepreneurs, lead a lonely work life. After another 12-hour day, the last thing on an entrepreneur’s mind is planning a get-together with friends. Often, daily stress and work travel make it difficult to connect with people, at work or even in the “real” world.

    But as any good businessperson knows, networking is vital in unlocking new opportunities. Building on this concept, the author created a successful business – and life – by hosting networking events such as mastermind dinners and mastermind talks.

    He discovered the personal benefits of human connection. And along the way, you will too. Want to find out more? Read on!

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
