Is Happiness Really a Choice? (The Truth About Depression and What You Can Do About It)

“HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE” Never before, in the history of the Internet, have I seen four words set off such a firestorm of debate. On one side, we have those who agree with the above statement and believe that happiness is indeed a choice (or an “inside job”, if you will), and on the other, we have those who vehemently disagree and believe that it is a result of external circumstances (or, in other words, what happens to...

YouTube is Dead (How Google Killed It and the Dreams of YouTubers Worldwide)

I USED TO BE BIG ON YOUTUBE Okay, well, not BIG big, like PewdiePie big, but pretty big, especially considering that I was working within the confines of what is colloquially known as “the YouTube fitness community”.
