I Wish You Happiness: In pursuit of professional peace
Coming Full Circle...
One of the things I learned during the writing my book, Powered by Happy, is that there are some things, no matter their abundance, that simply won’t bring the happiness we seek.
It’s hard not to be lulled into thinking otherwise. We envy the pictures in our social media feeds…of exotic vacations, lovely homes with beautiful furnishings, covetous social lives taking place at only the trendiest establishments. As humans, we are wired to be strivers. That we want what others have, or envision a bigger, better life is both understandable and exciting. The question is…at what cost?
"Now the board is involved"...
I will never forget my first European business trip. I was in my 20s and it was such a monumental trip for me for so many reasons. First, I was able to travel to London, England. I was in complete awe of the beauty, the historic architecture, the quaintness of the cobblestone walks, double decker buses and the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. It was love at first sight. It fueled my passion for traveling all over Europe even since!

What is the board getting involved in? Company culture. That’s right. They are starting to care about more than just the strategy, innovation and the bottom line. What do I have to say about that? It’s about time!
