My goal is to change our societal metrics of success to focus on wellbeing. I believe that all the world's problems are rooted in the fact that our economy is built upon the wrong metrics. As a result, we grow up focused on money as the end goal and we don't realize that real success is equivalent with having a deeply meaningful life. So it is my mission to educate the world on what wellbeing truly means & how to attain it in a methodical way, and embed wellbeing metrics at every level of society until it becomes as mainstream as GDP.
