Meaning and Impact Beyond Money—with Adam Hudson - EP 118
There is no correlation between happiness and money. And yet, many entrepreneurs are driven by the never-ending pursuit of more. What if we stopped to ask ourselves what we really need to live the life we want? What if we built businesses based on meaning and impact—not just profit?
Adam Hudson is a serial entrepreneur who has bought and sold several multimillion-dollar companies in the US and Australia. He is also a sought-after Amazon expert, sharing his experience building a seven-figure business on the platform through Reliable Education, a business education program for aspiring and established Amazon sellers that has reached 10K students in 36 countries. A passionate philanthropist, Adam has funded more than 6K interest-free microloans for entrepreneurs in third-world countries and given the gift of sight to 1K Indonesians in partnership with the John Fawcett Foundation.
