Meet Greg Jacobson, who built a $100,000,000 business with $0 start-up capital. Hear Greg's insights on how the U.S. can raise our ranking from the 13th happiest country in the world to a happier position. Greg will also share 10 things happy people do that unhappy people don't do. How do you match up? And he'll discuss research findings that happy people make more money, even if they aren’t as productive as people who earn less. How can you get there? Greg has appeared on ABC, CNN, FOX, NBC, Bloomberg Business, CBS, at Sotheby's and Christie's. Greg is the author of Think Yourself Happy: Five Changes in Thinking That Will Immediately Improve Your Life.  HappilyAchieving.com   We welcome back Susanna Janssen, foreign language educator and author on all topics related to words, to discuss: Recent research with London cabbies and Swedish military translators demonstrated how parts of the brain increase in size with the mastering of a new language, providing a significant buffer against Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases. – The U.S. is the only country that attempts to teach foreign languages using English, and we wonder why  students don’t speaking other languages fluently. Can this broken system be fixed?  – If body language is a "tell" that someone is lying, can word choice and delivery style also give them way? Susanna is the author of Wordstruck: The Fun and Fascination of Language. www.SusannaJanssen.com
