Building While Flying

Feb 3, 2022

Tony Samadani is the Co-Owner and Head of Strategic Partnerships at The Good News Network, a platform founded in 1997 as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media. Tony joined the team in 2016 after a Google search for good news amidst a tumultuous, stressful time led him to the Good News Network website. The “plethora” of good news stories hooked him almost immediately. 

Tony’s conversation with Mickey touches on more than just the benefits of consuming good news. In this episode of Building While Flying, Tony dives deep into how passions, purpose, and time are all related: if something fits within one of your three passion categories, then it’s worth your time. He shares how purpose and passion can guide your life decisions, and discusses why time is the most important currency. 

There’s a lot coming down the Good News Network pipeline, too! Tony talks about Good Currency, a brand they’re launching soon to “gamify good” and help others experience the impacts of good news in whole new ways.
