The Bliss-Happiness Solution

Amanda Willett - The SHINE Factor Success Coach


  • Are you lacking the clarity you need in your life to be able to accomplish the goals and dreams you hold for yourself?
  • Are you struggling to find a sense of peace, balance, wellbeing and happiness?
  • Isn't it time to leave indecision, procrastination and overwhelm at the door?
  • To SHINE you have to dare to be even more of who you really are!

On my journey I have been lucky to meet many different people over the course of my life. Women who inspire me with their unique brilliance who continually propel their lives (personally and professionally), while other equally talented women make choices that set them up for repeated drama and dysfunction. I've seen beautiful, remarkable women act like insecure, little girls, while other gifted, soul-satisfying women can be observed giving up on their dreams, expecting nothing or no one to believe in them because they feel selfish or unworthy.

If you're like most people chances are you've let your roles, responsibilities and the need to feel safe weigh you down. You're most likely playing by the rules, the rules someone else has written, you know the ones society dictate as what's normal and what's deemed to be right. Perhaps you've settled into a job you don't love, relationships that rob you of your being your best self, and habits and limiting beliefs that hold you back?

My personal journey has led me to experience all of these circumstances, while each comes with its own challenges they all require the need to revisit our purpose and truth of why we are here.

During this webinar you will learn; The straightforward but profound shifts I made in the past few years to; turn my chaotic, stressful, unbalanced life - into one that has allowed me to step fully into my true power giving me the freedom, time, resources and gift to be who I really am and do what I really love. On this call, I will reveal;
  • The 3 gifts that made it all possible.
  • The 3 things that pivoted my world of struggle into a world of purpose.
  • The 3 principles that I used — and still use every single day — to live a life beyond what I could have imagined.

I'm going to gift you my "Bliss Blueprint for Success Workbook."Were going to walk through and jam about the 3 step process for activating your vision now and I'll share proven strategies that will help you create a plan and take action.You're going to learn; how to transcend the limiting beliefs that are holding you back from enjoying the rich life you deserve.


Known as the SHINE Factor Success Coach, Amanda has supported and presented to woman's groups, corporations and non­profits such as; POWE, Amazing Woman's Day, Defeyneurs, The YWCA, United Way, Up with Women, WIN, The Dove Campaign for Real Beauty and Dress for Success.
