Happiness at Home and Work: What Dogs Would Tell Us

It’s a Dog’s life, and Man’s Best Friend has a lot to teach you about being happy at home and your small business.  A place where you and employees look forward to going and meeting new customers and clients.

Host Mary McCarthy and Co-Host Sharon DeLay talk to Garry McDaniel about his book, “The Dog’s Guide to Your Happiness: Seven Secrets for a Better Life From Man’s Best Friend.” Garry is a University Professor with expertise in Human Resource Management, Business, and Leadership. He has spent the last 20 years researching how to make organizations more productive. And he’s found some of the key qualities to a successful and happy working life such as Loyalty, Play, Forgiveness, and Unconditional Love.

“The reason we like those qualities is because they are important to us as well. And if you could incorporate those same qualities into your own life and your workplace, then you are a step ahead of your competition.” ~ Garry McDaniel

Host Mary McCarthy is the President of YMT Consultants, an entrepreneurial consulting and training firm. It focuses on one-on-one work with microbusiness owners (business with 20 or fewer employees, including the solopreneur), assisting them to monetize and create systems for their small businesses.

Sharon DeLay is the Founder and President of GO-HR, a full-service HR consulting business. It works mainly with microbusinesses, doing everything from hiring to firing employees, and all Human Resource Management services that fall in between.
