INTRODUCTION for new subscribers
(prior subscribers – skip down to the “Happiness Facts” section)

The purpose of this newsletter is to provide a regular and consistent supplement to the action-oriented process found within my website - - and in my book, BeHappy!

It is intended to make a powerful contribution to the amount of joy and fulfillment in your daily life by providing regular tools, reminders, and strategies to: This is far beyond a “How To” concept. It is rather a “Do” system, which, when used in conjunction with the BeHappy! book and The Happiness Academy (coming in mid-2013), helps create your own personal “Happiness Plan” for your life. If you want a template or “blueprint” for this Happiness Plan, click here and you can get it free.

Since my goal is to help make people happier, however, it is best to get the book, BeHappy! to use along with the website to achieve maximum benefit from the plan (yes, that’s partly a sales pitch — but it’s true).

Follow Up from the Last Edition of
The BeHappy! Newsletter

The February edition of this newsletter ended our 3-part series on “relationships” – and how to improve them for a happier life. I hope you got a lot out of it and improved all your relationships with the information and strategies provided.

I hope you changed your “rules” and created a plan to contribute to those people who represent your closest and dearest relationships. Perhaps most importantly, though (for many reasons) I hope you took steps to be happier – which is one of the first steps in having great relationships (remember the relationship “Happiness Loop”. Go back and review the October, December, and February editions of the newsletter if you need more help in the area of relationships. You can also click here to go to the main relationship section of to explore all the great information and resources there.

Now, though, on to the topic for this edition of The BeHappy! Newsletter...

As indicated in the red "Warning" box at the top of the page, this edition of the BeHappy! newsletter is different from all the others. I had already written the first installment of this "money and happiness series" when I was introduced to an exciting and time-sensitive opportunity I want to share with all my subscribers. So, I changed the main focus of the newsletter (still related to money, though) and am providing this opportunity to you. Read on to find out more and see why this edition of the newsletter is different than the rest. The next edition of the newsletter (in June) will get back to the original format and will get deeper into the philosophy of "money and happiness" - and how to live a happier, "richer" life.

Money and Happiness (Special "Opportunity" Edition)

Money and wealth are certainly areas where many people feel they can create more happiness in their lives. Other people believe money cannot "buy" happiness.

Actually, in my opinion both are true (more on this in the June edition).

For now, though, first - as I have suggested throughout the BeHappy! system and at - true and total happiness for any of us is dependent partly on our ability to live consistent with our own personal Definition of Happiness - which is different for everyone. So, if your Definition of Happiness includes money and wealth as one of the components, then money will be more important to your overall happiness than someone who does not have money or wealth as part of their definition.

In addition, regardless of our personal Definition of Happiness, looking at it from the opposite perspective, research indicates that happy people make more money and are more financially successful than unhappy people. Again, we will get more into this in the next few editions of the newsletter.

Finally, research also shows that - for almost all of us - there is an income level, below which we are generally less happy and above which we are generally happier (which we will also get into in the June edition).

So, regardless of what you believe about income or wealth, there is a proven link between money and happiness - which for many people is quite strong.

Now, as mentioned in the box above, I was going to focus on a different theme for this introduction to the "money and happiness" series, but over the past week I was provided an opportunity from a mutual Tony Robbins contact - a potential income opportunity - that is time-sensitive and could prove to be very interesting. It's related to money, so let's talk about...

A Possible Opportunity For More Money

We all know about Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+ ...
but have you ever heard of Rippln?

Most people haven't ... yet. But you probably will within the next few months.

That's because Rippln hasn't been released fully to the public yet - but when it does, it could end up getting bigger than all those other social media sites, including Facebook, which has a BILLION members.

The people involved in Rippln are a very successful group of internet marketers and they say it will be released to the masses within the next few weeks - and once it is, they expect it to go "viral".

Interestingly, it is a possible opportunity for everyone - people like you and me - to generate money, perhaps even a significant supplemental income, from the world of social networking.

Just check out this quick 2-minute video to get a glimpse of what it is:

The Opportunity

So, really, this appears to be similar to the early stages of Facebook and Twitter, when they were just getting started. At first, it was introduced to a relatively small group of people who began to create a "community". Then, it began to spread to the general public when we started to tell other people about it.

Well, the difference here is that, with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, for example, only the guys who started it (like Mark Zuckerberg, who started Facebook) made money - a lot of money!!

Well, according to the business model Rippln is setting up, through the same process of inviting people to join the community, the people inviting their friends (you and I) can make an income from the process. Also, once the community starts getting really big - into the millions, tens of millions, and even hundreds of millions of people - the apps, products and services people purchase within the community become part of the income stream for the users (us) as well.

So, if you are interested in learning more about this potential money-making opportunity (which is totally free for right now - and is available by invitation only), click here to get more information. It could be exactly what you have been seeking if you want or need additional income. So, take the action below to learn more...


Like everything in life, the old saying, “practice makes perfect” applies to happiness, too. By using the tools and concepts in the book, BeHappy! - and applying the principles found at and in this bi-monthly newsletter - you'll get the coaching and the “practice” you need to lead the happiest possible life.

It takes daily action to get “perfect” at it, though.

So, if you have read previous editions of The BeHappy! Newsletter you know that every issue provides some simple action-oriented exercises for the next two months (until the next edition of the newsletter) which relate to the main subject of this edition of the newsletter to help make happiness a habit.

Just a few minutes of focus every day and you’ll be laying the foundation for the happiest possible life - both for yourself and for those you love.

If you do these things, I can promise you’ll notice a big difference in the quality of your life.

You will BeHappy!

Actions for the next 60 days:

Take these actions over the next sixty days and by the time you receive the next edition of the BeHappy! Newsletter (in June), you will have a head start into this "money and happiness" concept which we'll be exploring for most of the rest of the year in a series on how money can make you happier, how to make more money, and how happiness can help.
