No one really thinks of humor as a bad thing.
Most people think of it as a nice to-have: “Sure, I’d love to enjoy my life and work more."
But in today’s overworked, underappreciated, stress-filled, sleep-deprived world...
humor is a must-have.

The perception is that humor is somehow innate. As if it’s encoded in our DNA. That people are “naturally funny,” and if you’re not one of the lucky few, well then good luck ever pulling it off.

But the truth is far different; the truth is that humor can be learned.

I'll show you how.

real-world applications

I want to first acknowledge that, indeed, humor isn't the only way.

Common "wisdom" around productivity dictates that in order to achieve anything worth while is to wake up every morning at 4AM, do 7 shots of expresso, followed by 3 hours of high-intensity crossfit yoga training with just a little bit of LSD, and you will be 0.7% more productive.

Yeah, you could do all of that, OR you could laugh a little more.

What if the secret was, indeed, so simple, so... human?
It's almost as if we had this built-in system to help ourselves relieve stress. 🤔

expect to get:

(probably definitely, if you do the work)

personal growth

work satisfaction

+n other benefits that are so unique to you and your situation that it would be impossible for me to write about. Though that's never stopped me before, so here goes:

If you just turned dreamy eyed at the thought of obtaining one or all of the above...
Then you’re going to want to get your hands (or cursor) on this course!

why others like you have joined our courses

“I want to be able to captivate people when I talk. Too often I start to tell a story and get interrupted.

Deep down everyone wants to be listened to as well. Perhaps humor will add that edge that keeps them hanging.”


“I’m tired of thinking, “What I should have said was….” I believe laughter is the shortest distance between two hearts.

This is a soft skill I wish I had been born with – but since I wasn’t – I’m all about learning it.


“There appears to be a disconnect between my brain (which thinks it’s funny) and my mouth (which convolute the message into something lame) or my fingers (who freeze, stumble or mumble.)”


“I find it frustrating that I’m not able to connect with people at the level I’d like. 

Language is a structure of thoughts and humor is the penthouse.


“I want to learn more on how to change language for real change, to be funnier or more relatable, to make a case for those who are not being heard.”


“I am afraid to trust myself and speak up freely. But perhaps there is a tool to change it – the humor. This is what I’ve realized now. In humor I trust.


We take everything too seriously, especially at work.

Then I realized that the Megan in front of the PowerPoint was not at all like Megan chatting at the coffee machine and that both myself and my colleagues liked coffee Megan better.”


I work in dementia care. I see fear, pain, exhaustion, and depression every day.

I took it upon myself to greet everyone with a smile and a joke to help relieve that situation as best as I could. Over time I found it began to have an impact and people began to look forward to a daily joke.”


“I would like to transform the meetings in the company’s medical team area into a light, humorous, and yet full of content dialogues.

I believe that with humor and comedy, it is possible to take care of people… especially people who take care of other people.”


“I work in a serious business, but I want to incorporate humor in useful ways and to show my personality more without losing credibility.


I need more laughter and light in my life. Everything about the world is so serious. I need a break.”


“I want to be a more interesting person. Funny people are always fun to be around, and I want to be someone who others want to be around more.


and many many many many many many many… many more.
