On Purpose Show show

Summary: Are you experiencing confusion, uncertainty, and stress as you seek new clarity of purpose? Looking for a way to get a new perspective, lift your spirits and enjoy the journey more? Consider an unexpected source of enlightenment: HUMOR. Listen to our conversation with Jollytologist, Allen Klein – author of Mom’s the Word and The Art of Living Joyfully. Through his books and his presentations, Klein shows people worldwide how to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies. Allen got into this unique line of work after his wife died of a rare liver disease at the age of 34. He saw how humor helped her, and those around her, cope. He also saw how humor helped him get through that loss. After her death, left his business, went back to school and got a Master’s Degree in Human Development, after writing a thesis on the therapeutic value of humor. He now teaches others, around the world, how to access humor in trying times, and get a new perspective on their situation to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies.
