Hello. My name is Lou Blaser.

I'm the host of Second Breaks and the founder of the AndThriving Network. My professional career spans over two decades with a focus on change strategy and implementation. So you might say that making change happen — whether by necessity or intention, whether for organizations or individuals — is in my DNA.

I believe that in a world like ours, we all should have the opportunity to grow and thrive in our work. With everything that technology has now made possible, there's no reason to feel and remain stuck. My personal mission is to see a world where fewer people are unhappy at work and more of us engaged in our highest contribution.
