Best Book Ever

Jul 26, 2021

Jasmine Vyas is an attorney, a privacy professional, a mother, and a serious bookworm. Which sounds like a Wonder Woman biography, doesn’t it? Interestingly, today she joined me to talk about laziness. Specifically, how toxic the “work harder” mentality can be, and how the book “Laziness Does Not Exist” changed her attitude toward work.
