Description

Something Significant is an interview show about ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the world. We define “significance” as ‘doing work you love, with people you love, in places you love, AND creating something of value for others while you’re at it.’

The host, Matt Gersper (a.k.a. Mr. Happy Living) explores the life journey that brought his inspiring guests to the moment of discovering their unique and distinct reason for being on this planet. Matt likes to explore their road to significance through the equation he calls The Happy Formula: Capacity x Purpose x Giving = Happy!
