How To Buy Happiness (TEDx Talk)

The three key 'Money Shifts' we all need to know about!

Just as the smartphone has changed the world forever, so has the rules around money. To thrive in the 21st century, especially in terms of enhancing your financial well-being and happiness, it's crucial we need to understand what the new rules are.

Most of us are at the mercy of money rather than being the master of our money. How good would it be, improving your relationship with money and importantly, that money used correctly, can absolutely buy you happiness.

In this motivational talk, Marc's audience will see:

  • The rules have changed for the 21st century
  • Money equals Emotions, it was never about maths
  • We all have Goals and Dreams, what makes you go WILD?

Imagine a world where instead of wasting so much time and energy stressing over money, this could be re-focused instead on connecting better with each other, to giving back and making this world a better place, well that's a world Marc is committed to creating.

Surviving Burnout

Since COVID, Australia has gone from one disaster to the next, cost of living increases, interest rate rises - it's no surprise that burnout, fatigue and stress, especially financial stress, is making us all far less productive, and happiness levels at an all-time low. Understanding the signs and symptoms of this widespread issue is the crucial first step towards reclaiming control over our work, our finances, and ultimately, our lives.

In Marc's captivating new talk he empowers his audiences to work, not out of necessity, but with passion and purpose, and to live a life worth living. His audience will:

  • Uncover the root of burnout, understanding why it has taken hold in our lives.
