Learn a little more about Jeff’s journey from his book, Beyond Success: Redefining the Meaning of Prosperity. He went from having nothing to everything he’d ever wanted in the space of about two years – what at the time was the life of his dreams – only to discover that success wasn’t what he thought it was.

He couldn’t identify it, but there was still something missing. Implicit in the statement money won’t buy us happiness is the idea that something else will, even if we don’t know what that something else is. This is what led him to his beyond success story – the search for what lies beyond the things he thought would make him happy.
