IAM1683 – Award-Winning Author and Speaker Shows People How to Use Positive Thinking and Humor Through Difficult Stuff

Podcast Interview with Allen Klein

Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Allen understands that life is not always ideal. The difference though is he finds and uses humor as a tool to change the way that we look at things. Our circumstances aren't changing but often our perspective changes. It was also awesome to hear how he uses the “red clown nose” and how that helps change his and others' days.
