Listen to the Latest Episode of Joy Economics


"I have this faith that I'm here for a greater purpose." Toyin Adon-Abel Jr of MeddlingMinds Agency operates from this core belief and thinks all businesses should also have a higher purpose. Tune into the latest episode of Joy Economics as we unpack the intersection of marketing and cause and how brands can use their influence for the greater good.

"So I started this podcast as a challenge to Corporate America to rethink how we’re letting our employees live, work, and play every day in the workplace. Our hope and intention is that by doing so, we’ll be able to create healthier organizations and healthier bottom lines that are fueled by healthier people. And in the end, everyone wins."
