So Money - Episode 712

Dan Harris

Co-Anchor ABC News and Author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics

Can meditation improve our finances and career? I’ve never tried it but our guest today says, in some ways, yes.  You may know Dan Harris as the co-anchor of ABC News’ “Nightline” and the weekend edition of “Good Morning America.” He’s also the bestselling author of 10% Happier and the newly released Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics.

He’s been very vocal about once having a panic attack in front of millions of people. It was that experience ten years ago that set Dan on a path to find out why he had a panic attack, and begin his path to self-discovery and eventually, meditation.

Now, Dan admits he was the title of his book. He was the fidgety skeptic who learned how to meditate. What’s his practice like? How did it transform his life and how can meditation benefit our bottom lines?

To learn more about Dan, you can listen to his podcast 10% Happier, visit his website or follow him on Twitter @DanBHarris.
