Conversation with Kris Carr

This fun chat between New York Times best-selling author Kris Carr and entrepreneur and inspiration expert James Altucher takes you on an exciting ride to understanding the power of no. James explains that most people’s inclination to overuse yes comes from fear—fear of disappointing others, missing opportunities, and so on. But he stresses that this yes attitude can leave you feeling tired, resentful, and overwhelmed. By being selective in what you choose—only saying yes to those things that truly align with who you are—you can create the life of your dreams. After sharing his own ups and downs with starting nearly two dozen businesses, James lays out some simple steps to help you figure out how to use no to live in accordance with your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. With much humor and joy, James gives you your own magic formula for getting what you want in life!
