Ep 135 How To Find Your Cloud Nine Life | Jordan Gross

July 8, 2019

Jordan Gross is a two-time startup founder, a TEDx speaker, and a #1 best-selling author of a book called Getting COMFY: Your Morning Guide to Daily Happiness. He has another book on the way titled Your Journey To Cloud Nine. I guess I should mention that Jordan is an ancient 24 years old.

As some of you will know I love talking about happiness (it’s been at the core of my life philosophy for more than 30 years now). In preparing for this interview I was ready to take on this young expert, almost 40 years younger than me. Partly because the way we experience happiness definitely changes over time. So I’m thinking this youngster has a lot to learn. It turns out that I’m the one who did the learning. This was such an enjoyable conversation.

In this episode Jordan shares with us the process he’s using to write his next book. This includes asking people of all ages and all walks of life to share when they last felt free and electrifying joy, or in his vocabulary a “cloud nine” moment. He even sat down with homeless people and asked them to describe the happiest part of their day. Their answers may surprise you. 

Near the end I ask Jordan where he would be in ten years. He flips the question and focuses on what he hopes to achieve. For me, and likely for you, it was a spine tingling moment. Learn from this episode and key am eye on Jordan. He won’t disappoint. Enjoy.
