Factfulness: Why The World Is Better Than You Think

February 15, 2022

How often do you take the time to examine and understand the facts of your life and the world around you? 

Today I am joined by best-selling author and entrepreneur Anna Rosling Rønnlund, to discuss how to change your perspective, worldview, and life through Factfulness.

If you have ever wondered how you can enhance your comprehension and appreciation of the world around you then you are not going to want to miss this episode. As the co-founder of Gapminder.org and co-author of NY Times Bestselling book, Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About The World – And Why Things Are Better Than You Think, Anna shares expert insight about using facts to understand the world, interpret media, and establish context. 

How do you overcome fear of the unknown as a traveler? I'd love to hear what they are and hope you will share them by sending me an audio message.
