My good mate Ed Wischer and I sit down for another discussion. Almost 12 months after we first discussed his 'Human Happiness Project'.

Today's chat is centred around a common theme of Purpose and Meaning. With the Human Happiness Project now renamed Moments of Meaning, we talked all things happiness, purpose, meaning and managed to spend a little bit of time discussing the marketing juggernaut that is the Kardashians.

After 7 weeks apart Host Lachie Wallace gets together with Simon Cooper to discuss the happenings of the past month and a half. With Lachie off galavanting around South America, Coop and Team Virtus was left to pick up the slack. 

We discussed all things growth, learning and lessons and discussed the contrasts of our world and South America and shared a few uneducated opinions of the future of the human race, global equality, blockchain, money and the need for borders.

Jess is a rad human. Think of someone who is bubbly, always up and about, the drive of someone possessed and a genuine person who cares immensely about those around her...

That's JR. 

Jess is Head of Operations and Performance Coach at Virtus Human Performance. We first came across Jess when she was an intern at Virtus and we couldn't get rid of her (not that we would want to).

Her energy is infectious and she is continuously on the journey of self-improvement. 


This conversation was heaps of fun and I hope you get as much out of it that I did.
