In 2007, after working for some of the top creative companies around the world, and starting successful companies of my own, including unconventional brand communications agency 86 the onions, I was unfulfilled and feeling like I had become someone else.
Like many others, I truly believed that the enormous amount of stress that many of my peers and I were under and the constant emotional highs and lows experienced in our industry were simply a job hazard that came with territory.
From the age of 16, every career and business decision I made was based on finding my happy place in the world of art and commerce. And while I was happy some of the time, the unhappy, frustrating moments eventually took their toll on both my business and personal life. Whatever I was doing—even if it was working for others—wasn’t working for me.
I needed some guidance from someone who understood exactly what I was going through and I found it in four amazing individuals who dramatically changed my life for the better and continue to influence my practice on a daily basis.
Transformational coach Debbie Robins, M.A. not only helped me understand how I was wired, allowing me to design a career where I could be happy, but also took me under her wings and taught me how to coach others just as we had both been coached.
Through the wealth of knowledge and support of Patricia McDade and Susan James, Founder/President and COO of The Entrepreneurial Edge respectfully, I have been able to successfully work through the challenges that all businesses and entrepreneurs face, continually growing my businesses and core competencies.
Tom Knowles, world-renown meditation instructor and founder of the Vedic Meditation Center, personally taught me how, with very little effort, I can experience more harmony, synchronicity, and apparent coincidences in life—as if the whole universe has risen up to support my ideas and creative impulses.
With my rich life experiences and the combined tools passed down from these experts in their respective fields, I have developed a proven process to help you create your happy and live your life stress-free and on purpose.
I look forward to working with you and passing on this amazing gift that has been passed down to me.
With great pleasure,

I went into this program with some serious skepticism, but it took no time at all for me to realize just how powerful Chad's insights and guidance truly were. He helped me find real clarity about my ambitions and gave me practical tools for making the right decisions to reach them. Those decisions have been paying dividends ever since.
Working with Chad brings new meaning to the saying, "If I only knew then what I know now". It's liberating to know there's someone out there who gets what this is all about and can challenge you in ways that are practical, professional and encouraging. I'm feeling as confident as I ever have and I know The Chad has a lot to do with it.
Doing the Create Your Happy process as I stepped into a new career path helped me sharpen my focus and identify my personal vision; it also helped me chart a map for where I wanted to go and gave me pragmatic navigational tools for steering a steady course. These tools were things I came back to again and again, whenever I hit the rocky waters of doubt. They boosted my resolve and my belief in my capabilities. Throughout the process, Chad's warmth, humor, and insight gave me the confidence I needed to step into my new role.
Chad/CYH helped me broaden my horizons while sharpening my focus. That might sound scientifically impossible, but once you've been through this eye- opening experience for yourself, it all makes perfect sense. I found that the direction and answers and I'd been seeking were right in front of my face; I just needed someone to help me recognize them and go after them!
Create Your Happy gave me renewed hope that I could create a career for myself based on what I love doing. The program helped me define those "non- negotiables" that I need in a job to be truly happy and fulfilled. Chad kept me focused and motivated. I recommend this to anyone who is soul searching for a career that is fulfilling.
Chad is contagiously inspirational. When you speak with him you can't help but get charged up about making your dreams a reality. Not to mention, he's pretty much the wisest, funniest, most experienced and connected dude I've ever met.
When I decided to work with Chad I knew that I wasn't satisfied with my current job and career. I felt stuck. Create Your Happy helped me rethink what I was doing and what really made me feel good in the work place. It was the catalyst to start me down the path towards the things that really interest me. And it gave me a set of tools to use to help reach those goals. It has been four months since I completed the Create Your Happy course. In that time, I have become a freelancer. I work fewer hours and I make my own schedule. Additionally, I have free time to work on my own projects. It's one day at a time, but I have my eye on the prize.
Working with Chad through the "Create Your Happy" was a great experience. It happened for me at exactly the right time in my life when I was questioning a lot of things about my choices at work and some things that are clearly my passion, but didn't know how to get to. I figured these were questions I would just always wrestle with internally, but Chad helped me focus on what I wanted and through our discussions we came up with a great plan for getting there. Chad has a vast amount of experiences in the creative world and he drew on those insights, but he also really listened to me and was engaged in my questions. I was impressed with Chad's humor and lightness and ability to help me around what is something I have been of two minds about for a long time. I constantly come back to the things we created to make decisions around and that is very useful. We need more Chad's in the world.
