In today's episode, we continue our interview with Jodi Wellman about life, death, and living the best life we can. This is a 2 part interview and if you haven't heard the first part yet, do check that.


Jodi Wellman is a leading authority on living lives worth living. As a speaker and facilitator, she helps her clients live squander-free lives while they're lucky enough to still be above ground — while cleverly beginning with the "big end" in mind. She named her business Four Thousand Mondays because it shines the light on the finite number of weeks we have to live like we mean it.


Jodi holds a Master's of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, where she is also an Assistant Instructor. As a certified coach with 25 years of corporate leadership experience, she helps executives, teams, and high performers work well and live even better.
