I’ve Decided: Host Andy Thornton & guest Ben Watt – Ebullient

July 13, 2022 | 0 Comments

It is no secret that we live in the age of technology and information. Albeit there are many pros about having this data at our fingertips, there are also many cons. One major downside to “news at the click of a button” is our human brain is not equipped to absorb and successfully process at the levels we are exposed to. Facts and opinions start to intermingle and suddenly, we don’t even know what is true or what to believe anymore. This situation breeds low morale, zaps our energy, and causes even the most positive people to be more negative. This is a serious issue because the world does not need more negative things or negative people. The world needs more ebullient people to make a positive impact.

Tune in now to listen to our host Andy Thornton, CEO of the Greater Peoria Family YMCA and his guest Ben Watt, Founder of Next Step as they talk about the weekly winning word ebullient.
