The Happy Venture

Looking Back, Going Forward.

This month marks a very special anniversary. The birth of The Happy Venture! It’s the 4th birthday of the blog that gave me the courage to start speaking my truth.

Start As You Mean To Go On: How Something Simple Changed the Way I Work

This “work” feels relaxed and organic. Simple, easy, and in the flow of creativity. Not so rigid, scheduled or, worse yet, forced. It feels playful! Grounded. May all my work feel this way. It feels like a good start.

How to Persistently Go With the Flow

Life happens. Things get interrupted, even when we set the best of intentions. So what keeps us going in the right direction when rocks show up just as we’re heading downstream and seem to throw us off course? Persistence.

Are You Living On Purpose?

Do you know in your heart that you're on the right path?

Is everything you do each day determined by you and your desires? 

Does your work allow you to express your talents instead of hiding them? 

Would you like your relationships to be fulfilling and supportive?

What's Next For You?

The Happy Venture is a website dedicated to exploring happiness, personal truth, and life purpose.

Since 2012 my mantra has been "1 Step, 1 Breath, and 1 Day at a Time".
It's reminds me to walk, breath, and live each day ON PURPOSE.

What started as a passion project sharing my journey, revealed my desire to become a Transformational Life Coach.

Since 1997 I have been exploring what my life could be,
away from what others told me I "should" do.

It's all led me here. I realized I wanted to help others on their journey, to be a guide.
Helping people find their PURPOSE in life is MY PASSION!

If you're ready to explore what YOUR LIFE COULD BE ON YOUR TERMS, FROM YOUR HEART than reach out. Let me give you a hand on your journey. You're not alone. I'd love to be your guide.

Sincerely,

Melissa A. Perry
Transformational Coach
