Having a meaningful life is to choose to be happy. It doesn’t matter what is there or what is not there; it’s a choice.- Jo Formosa

Do you wonder what really go behind mega online launches and why yours don’t get the same results?

About Tom Morkes  

In today’s episode 58 of Meaningful Work, Meaningful Life podcast, I have the great pleasure to discuss with Tom Morkes, one of the brilliant minds behind some of the most successful and profitable marketing and sales campaigns in the past decade. Tom has helped more than 100 brands and businesses grow their traffic, leads, and sales using his Launch to Profit Methodology.

Some of the campaigns he managed include a record-setting Kickstarter campaign that generated almost half a million US dollars in 33 days. He also ran book launches that have landed his authors on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists and much more. 

Tom is also a past mentor of mine who encouraged me to start this podcast back in 2018.
