07: Jim Estill: Being Grateful And The Syrian Project

“Gratitude for me is the root and the key to happiness. So the simplest exercise is to have gratitude journal and every morning, just write a few lines of the things I’m grateful for. And I will tell you anything that is causing problems pales by comparison to what I could be grateful for.” Jim Estill is the CEO at Danby Appliance and ShipperBee, but most importantly he’s a compassionate human being that loves to help others. One of his biggest and most impactful projects consisted of sponsoring hundreds of Syrian refugees to come to Canada.

  • His personal and professional path that has led him to where he is now
