To inspire people everywhere to always be Creating Happiness.
The idea of Creating Happiness came to me at the lowest of low points in my life. I was at a turning point and I was completely alone. There I stood in my darkest hours with stones being thrown at me from all directions. I had a decision to make on how I was going to respond. There was only one choice in my mind because sinking to anyone else’s level wasn’t an option I would take. I wanted to be a positive force in the world around me.
Instead of falling even deeper into despair and letting all of that awful stuff into my head and my heart, I decided to soar.
I set out to develop new behavior patterns where I actively created my reality.
I joined a mastermind group to breathe new life into my business, turning it into a money making machine. I read every book on positive psychology, emotional & social intelligence, happiness, leadership and positive thinking I could get my hands on to enlist all of my mental, spiritual and physical resources into creating my best life.
Within a short period of time I made some major shifts in my business, my family and for myself that brought more courage, positivity and joy than I’d ever experienced before. I began writing, teaching and speaking to make the kind of impact I always knew was within me.
That was when I stepped into my life’s purpose.
That was when Creating Happiness called to me. This was what I mastered in my personal and professional life and it was a gift that wasn’t only for me, it was for the world. Drawing upon my foundation in marketing and hospitality, my direction was clear.
I pitched the idea of The Business of Creating Happiness for a presentation at a conference I had spoken at for several years. I knew from the moment my feet hit the stage, I had found the message I needed to share with the world. I wasn’t the only person who felt it…everyone who was there did too.
This vision of mine, inspiring the world to always be Creating Happiness, has bloomed in ways beyond my imagination.
