Kristi and Greg are the people behind The Latest by Greg Ott. I've been on their podcast recently and I got to meet some amazing people. Been wanting to explore the power humor has in creating moments of ease and gratitude. When stress is high, when we're tense, it's harder to feel grateful, but humor gives us this release that helps us experience gratitude much easier. This is the topic of our discussion, and I believe it's the best way to end this year, with humor and some great ideas on how we can enjoy 2021 from our two guests. Best wishes for next year, don't forget to keep seeking and spreading gratitude!Resources:

Laura K Roe is a veteran journalist and editor, who, as a newspaper reporter and magazine writer, interviewed murderers, rapists, politicians, scientists, and CEOs.By her late twenties, she had also survived and witnessed PTSD-triggering violence and abuse. Even though she wrote one murder mystery novel and garnered an agent, between all her reporting deadlines, Laura could never find the time to get it published or write another. It’s no wonder that, by her mid-thirties, Laura had devolved into an anxious cynic with declining health and a propensity to over-indulge in coffee and vino.Laura hit rock bottom at 39 when her husband left. She had an eight-month-old baby and a seven-year-old to care for. Her job as a parenting & pregnancy editor vanished. Her mother was dying. And she had just moved back from London to Los Angeles. Little did she know that her journey to wholeness had just begun.Resources:Laura's website: https://www.laurakroe.comFrom Lack To Abundance:

John Lee Dumas is the founder and host of Entrepreneur on Fire. He interviewed inspiring entrepreneurs 7 days a week (wow) and has won a Best of iTunes award in 2013.     He is himself a very successful entrepreneur and a very successful one, earning millions per year. He and his girlfriend Kate Erickson (an inspiring woman that has been a guest on The Gratitude Podcast), publish a monthly income report, being very transparent about their expenses and income, which I find amazing.  He developed the concept of a daily podcast that would feature the story of successful entrepreneurs which he launched on September 22, 2012. Since then, his podcast has been listened to by millions of people every month, mostly entrepreneurs looking for inspiration, and he's had guests like Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferris, Brian Tracy, Anthony Robbins and so many more.    What I love about John Lee Dumas is the fact that he is very transparent, he manages to appreciate the journey and he's a really great authentic teacher. I love his quote about comparing ourselves with others. He always tells his community: "Compare and despair" and I found this short quote very useful in my gratitude practice. There's always someone better or more prosperous than you are and by comparing, you end up despairing and not using your time and energy creatively, with gratitude in your heart.    Please feel free to SUBSCRIBE RATE AND REVIEW ON APPLE PODCASTS.
