086: Mark Victor Hansen – How Asking Helped the Co-Author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” Achieve His Destiny

Episode 086 – Mark Victor Hansen, Author of “Ask! The Bridge Between Your Dreams and Your Destiny”

Our guest, on this episode, is the co-author of the wildly successful Chicken Soup for the Soul book series.

He recently cowrote the book “Ask! The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny,” which is a self-help journey about learning the art and science of asking questions and how it can completely transform your life. With all of the challenges we face, we oftentimes give up on our dreams. This book opens a door to rekindling those dreams and actively pursuing them—using a simple tool that everyone has at their disposal.

Our guest has soothed millions of souls through Chicken Soup for the Soul, and now is aiming to immerse readers in the wondrous potential of their own lives, by simply learning to ask.
