About the Author
Speaking and entertaining since age eighteen, Lisa Broesch-Weeks’ twenty-five years “in the trenches” took her from Fortune 500 corporate executive to entrepreneur.
These experiences also helped her identify the overwhelming need for self-care and personal development that so many busy, overachieving people tend to sacrifice in the name of success.
After researching, experimenting, and finally discovering the real meaning of "happiness," and its nexus with personal fulfillment, she vowed to share what she had learned to make things easier for everyone who followed.
Lisa now lives with her husband and divides her time between Orlando, FL and Pittsburgh, PA, speaking, coaching, consulting, and leading Happiness Retreats.

I usually ignore books with the terms like “bliss” in them as my default reaction is one of incredulity. I prefer real world advice and more science based approach to self improvement. Happy to say this book met that criteria and still remained an easy read.
This is part workbook and thesis full of useful exercises designed to help you instill happy “bliss” moments in your day to day life. The author mentions in the intro that its not just another "airy fairy self help book" and makes her point throughout with a plethora of research from the field of positive psychology (the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals to thrive ) and heavily footnoted throughout. The book could be worth just based on it’s reference material.
I really enjoyed the many worksheets, checklists and illustrations throughout (I'm very visual and tactile) and it drives home the practical aspects of the book - happiness/ bliss is achievable but it's something you work for, not wait for. Highly recommended.
