I’m Randy. I am the Founder and CEO of Project Happiness, author, filmmaker and Certified High Performance Coach. For years, I have been on a quest to uncover authentic happiness - I wanted to know and share everything about it and have been blessed through my non-profit to reach people of every age around the globe.
Recently however, so many more of you have been asking about anxiety, anger, fear, loneliness... how to navigate the tough stuff. These are questions we are all facing in some form or other.
My newest book, Emotional Advantage explores how your emotions, when you know how to use them, can fuel you forward, give you more clarity, inner confidence and direction. Every feeling offers messages to guide you back to your core self - your true nature.
My mission is to help you create your best life; and through this book, Ignite Personal and Group Coaching, I know that together we can make your goals a reality.
Sitting across the kitchen table, my teenager whispered, "I want to be happy but I don’t know how." As the situation became more intense in school and at home, signs of depression became more evident and I had no idea what to do. It rocked me to the core to see my child suffering and I ached for a way to help. I asked myself, "Where were the resources, how many more were suffering, and why are we not talking about this?" This was the beginning of my journey, and the catalyst for starting the pro-purpose, non-profit, Project Happiness. Though the inspiration was personal, it was soon evident that the issue at hand was global. My vision in finding resources to help my own child soon expanded to the dream of World Happiness Cultivation! Now I am more than excited to bring you my brand new book, Emotional Advantage: Embracing All Your Feelings To Create A Life You Love.
