On a scale of 1-10, how grateful would you say that you are every day, in each moment, and how present are you for all that you have to be grateful for?

Personally, I believe that GRATITUDE is the key to true and lasting happiness, and I would humbly rate myself at a “9” on the gratitude scale. But that wasn’t always the case for me. In fact, quite the opposite.

Just ask my mom. She’ll tell you that, growing up, gratitude was definitely NOT one of my strengths. It wasn’t until I learned the power that gratitude has in determining the quality of our lives that I made it a priority and the quality of my life my life has been radically transformed as a result.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, I was immediately grateful (literally). For what you might be wondering? For the extraordinary adversity that I believed would provide me the opportunity to learn, grow, and become a better version of myself.

On today’s podcast episode, you’ll meet one of the most genuinely grateful people I have ever met – someone whom I deeply admire – Ryland Engelhart. Ryland is the Mission Fulfillment Officer and co-owner of my absolutely favorite restaurant in the world – one that is changing the world – Café Gratitude!

Today, he joins the podcast to share how to amplify gratitude and happiness in your life every single day, and how humanity can live regeneratively in relation to nature.


  • How Ryland’s parents viewed business as a force for good – and how doing good, and adding value to people’s lives, and being mindful can naturally lead you to profits.
  • Why fulfillment doesn’t come to Ryland from stuff – and how he finds extraordinary power from surrendering, being present, and living in the moment.
  • How we as a species commoditized our relationship with nature – and how we can consume with reverence, consciousness, and recognition to allow for continued life for generations to come.
  • What Ryland does to ground himself when he feels low.
