Work From Your Happy Place Podcast

What does your happy place look like?

Do you wake up every morning energized or dreading the day in front of you?

Are you overwhelmed, constantly juggling demands, or do you work from a place of joy and gratitude?

What would it look like if you created a life that made you happy every day?

Work from Your Happy Place aims to EMPOWER you to take a leap toward the happy and fulfilled life you’ve always imagined by sharing stories of successful people who have done the same.

Our featured mentors will model their stories of failure, success, and perseverance.  What key tools and resources do you need to create a better lifestyle? Listeners will learn what “Happy Place” means for each guest and get lasting advice from the people who are living their dreams.

Being able to create a life that balances quality time and prosperity, in both your personal and professional life is one of the keys to true happiness.

Would working from your Happy Place be a laptop on the beach or in an office in the business you’ve always dreamed to own?

Join us each week so we can help you stay there with confidence and the resources to make it your reality each day!

Your Happy Place is waiting…

Meet your host!

The reason that I started Work From Your Happy Place is because I truly work from mine every single day. Working from my happy place means knowing that I can make a difference in someone else’s life, from the thousands I’ve though through my training, but most importantly, my family. Running my business from my home has allowed me to spend time with my family whenever I please. But when I do travel for speaking engagements, I am able to take them with me across the world. Working for myself meant that I was able to work hard for something I was passionate about. Being an entrepreneur has allowed me to experience many exciting things. I have obtained a tremendous amount of confidence that has carried over into every aspect of my life.

Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig joined forces, to found Zingerman’s Delicatessen, and opened the doors on March 15, 1982. All they wanted at that time was a great corned beef sandwich and an organization with soul.

Zingerman’s started as 1300 square feet of combined restaurant and specialty food retail space, run solely by Paul, Ari, and two employees. The Zingerman’s Community of Businesses now has 23 partners, employs over 750 people and generates over $60 million in annual sales from ten separate businesses: Zingerman’s Delicatessen (including Zingerman’s Catering), Zingerman’s Mail Order, Zingerman’s Bakehouse, Zingerman’s Training Inc., Zingerman’s Coffee Company, Zingerman’s Roadhouse, Zingerman’s Creamery, Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, and Miss Kim.

Paul believes that he has been successful in spite of the fact that he has limited natural talent and abilities because he has always thought that the only real limits are those of vision.
