Giving is central for the peace of the soul, and Thanks is vital for the contentment of life. Yet it’s the first word, Happy, that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately.
Meet Matt Gersper
I live on Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina with my beautiful wife and our two daughters.
I graduated from the University of California – Davis where I studied Economics, ran track, and played football. I dedicated my first two years after college to becoming a professional athlete, only to come up short with the unique distinction of being cut from three different teams, in three different leagues: Canadian, USFL, and NFL.
Over the next 30 years, I focused on training myself to become a successful businessman. I was given many opportunities to learn and gain expertise in the various functions required to start, grow, and lead successful businesses.
I am shifting my focus from helping businesses to helping people. On January 16, 2014, I decided to sell my previous company and dedicate my time and resources to researching and sharing best practices for happy living. I write to inspire others to believe that a better self is always possible – today, every day, for the rest of their lives.
At Happy Living, we are on a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the world, one person at a time.
I hope you will join us!
