At first blush, entrepreneur and New York University Stern School of Business Professor of Marketing Scott Galloway would not seem to be the ideal person to provide advice about happiness. By his own admission, he has spent large swaths of his life angry and unhappy. He grew up without economic security and got into college (against his father's advice) only by convincing UCLA to take a chance on a middling high school student. He repaid them by again under-performing. Somehow he talked his way into a job in investment banking. A theme emerged: he did just enough work to make it plausible for an impressive institution to take a chance on him, and then he did less with the opportunity than he should.
