My Zen Path

Dear reader,

This newsletter contains an interesting article - What makes life worthwhile? This article discusses how Chip Conley found Maslow's hierarchy of needs inspiring and useful not only for his employees, but also for his business profits.

This is the last monthly newsletter for this year and I wish you a very happy and purposeful new year! 

Thank you!
