BLISSONOMIC$ is the sweet spot between making a living and designing a life you love. A successful life to some might mean a life of joy and happiness, and to others it might mean wealth and options. I soulfully believe we can have both, by design. A blissful life rarely happens by chance. Happiness comes from the choices we make everyday. The value we place on our freedom and the people we chose to let in. Give yourself permission to design the life of your dreams.
BLISSONOMIC$ is the foundation to a sustainable, rewarding, joyful business and lifestyle. Too many people chase the money when developing their business, follow your bliss and the money will chase you. It is a lifestyle of simple pleasures enjoyed with financial piece of mind. We celebrate those who live the lifestyle and offer guidance and support to encourage those who dream of following their bliss. We do so through play, fun and complete alignment.

Seven years ago…sitting in our living room on a blustery fall morning, my husband and I started talking about bliss. The definition of bliss and what bliss or happiness had to do with money and career. I wondered what was more important to people, happiness or money? Why were so many people miserable in their careers and why so few did anything to change their situations. I wondered if it was fear or laziness, that kept them in that state, or maybe they just didn’t know where to start to make a change. I wondered if there was a magic formula, where one could calculate the exact amount of money they would need to be happy. I wondered how I could help people discover their passion and purpose. I know, lots of wondering. If you know me, you’re smiling just thinking about the glazed look on my face when I mentally leave the room to connect the many dots in my head.
After our long conversation, which went on for days, my husband coined the term Blissonomics to describe the sweet spot where bliss and money meet. In other words, the economics of bliss. Broken down, it looks like this:
Being happy + living your purpose + making a living = Blissonomics
Mind blown, and being the geek that I am, I ran to my laptop and bought the URL, Blissonomics.com
There were too many people around me that were miserable with their everyday lives, I knew there had to be a solution. In my case, I didn’t follow the money, it was much more important that I did what I loved, but it wasn’t always like that. Once upon a time I had a thriving career doing what I hated. This career path resulted in two burnouts by the age of 35. After my second one, I vowed to never compromise my happiness by doing something that did not ultimately fulfill me. Don’t get me wrong, I love money, the freedom it brings, the peace of mind it may allow me, but I loved my happiness more. That’s not to say that everyday is filled with unicorns and rainbows, but I found my calling, and continue to make a living at it. In doing what I love, the money always finds me.
So for the next seven years, I was on a mission to question everyone I could on the subject, friends, family, colleagues, students and even strangers. Do you love what you do for a living? I would ask. Does it make you happy? And if not, what would you do for a living? and What would it take for you to change?
For many it was the fear of starting over, not making the same amount of money, or not having any connections in a new industry. For others it was not knowing what their calling was.
While I was questioning everyone, I put my own life under a microscope and started analyzing every aspect of my life including my own career, my beliefs, my dreams, my accomplishments, my health, my relationships with others and my relationship with myself. I needed to measure my own bliss factor, if I was going to crack this code.
Little did I know that this conversation would set me on a path that would ultimately change my life….
