How to Go From Burnout to Happy

Garrett Carlson

Garrett followed his passion to teach. But that passion ended shortly after he experienced burnout. Garrett was dealing with addictions. He was tired. Exhausted. Overweight. 

He had enough. 

One day, he decided to make a change. 

Garrett founded, a men’s magazine that champions introspection and vulnerability in men. 

If you are feeling overwhelmed and burnt out, maybe it’s time to reconsider your life too. 

Listen to this conversation about lifestyle and business design. You may find inspiration.
