Do you know in your heart you could be much happier in your life, but you aren't sure how to do it? You are not alone! This course will help.

A few years ago, I was in that place of being chronically unhappy and unsatisfied in my life. I was terrified of waking up in 20 years in the same spot, but I didn't know where to start to make a change. Then I found the very exercises I'm sharing now. Doing them over a few weeks changed my life. I understood what was missing, what I wanted, and how to get it.

I then shared these steps with others and they also had profound changes in their lives. We started a ripple of happiness.

This self-paced course consists of brief lectures about the topic along with a short workbook in each module. Simple and powerful. The modules include:

  • Preparing the foundation (life balance assessment)

  • Protecting your happy space (learning to set boundaries)

  • Connecting with who you ARE (core values)

  • Kicking unhelpful beliefs to the curb (limiting beliefs)

  • Releasing the past (forgiveness)

  • Envisioning your happier life (discovering your true passions)

  • Removing obstacles (facing your fears)

  • Action planning for a happy life (goal setting)

  • The daily habits of joy (how to be happy right now)

Whether you do the whole course in a weekend or spread it out, you will gain the clarity and confidence to take control of your life and live happy.

Who this course is for:
  • People in unfulfilling careers
  • People experiencing a big life transition (divorce, empty nest, etc)
  • People who are not happy in life
  • People who want a change, but don't know what it is
