Matt: Read The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. It includes scientific data about why people are happy in life. Most people say they will find happiness when they achieve something. Then, they achieve it and are happy for a short period of time, before they feel the need to achieve something else to be happy. If you’re happy with where you are in life now, you’ll always be happy. I read it seven years ago and it changed my life.

Mark: If you’re serious about starting a franchise, don’t go it alone. Learn from someone who’s done it and knows the ins and outs. Go to And get the ebook,, that will teach you the five best industries to invest in.
