Why Happiness?

Because it’s a choice and a gift we can give to ourselves and clients! It will not only benefit our clients' well being, it will increase the positive outcome of whatever else they are trying to achieve through life coaching.

Many studies have demonstrated that happiness:

  • Doubles your critical thinking skills, problem solving ability, and creativity
  • Boosts your immune system and cardiovascular health
  • Extends life expectancy
  • Creates more fulfilling and longer lasting relationships
  • Creates more balance in life
  • Even helps individuals receive work promotions more often
  • And many more positive side effects!

Do you want to help your clients feel inspired with life? Help them stop letting stress and other people zap their joy! This course will give you the 6 simple, proven keys to helping your clients experience TRUE happiness in their daily life, no matter what’s going on around them. You’ve heard that true happiness comes from within… so, are you ready to help others UNLEASH it? Instructor Joeel A. Rivera, M.Ed. is finishing a study about happiness (for his Ph.D. in Psychology) and wants to share his powerful findings and experience with you!

“Throughout my youth I had the opportunity to see life through many different lenses. Moving every six months, I saw and lived in two worlds—a world of poverty and a world of wealth. I found that regardless of what world we each live in, we all want to experience the same thing—happiness. After failing my first year of college, my brother passed away, and I was reawakened with a new purpose to discover what creates true happiness—internal peace and joy—regardless of what we are experiencing in our life. This led me back to school, where I successfully received my Bachelor, Masters, and now Ph.D. in psychology. My co-instructor Natalie and I have dedicated more than 18 years, combined, academically and professionally to understanding what creates true happiness and teaching others how to create it in their lives. Our life purpose it to help you and others experience more happiness and joy on a daily bases, which is what lead us to create Transformation Services, Inc., Transformation Magazine, and our courses, programs, and life coaching which have reached over 300,000 thousand people from over 195 countries. The information in this course is not just based on life experience; it is based on what research from around the world has demonstrated to be the keys to experiencing true happiness.”

This course will help your clients: 

  • Experience more joy and happiness on a daily bases, no matter what!
  • Help them let go of old patterns and belief systems and replace them with empowering ones!
  • Help them to stop living everyone else’ dreams and embrace their true path!
  • Help them control their emotions (so they can feel good NOW) instead of their emotions controlling them!
  • Help them to live a life of purpose and be their authentic self!

About the Instructor

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are a dynamic duo, as a husband-and-wife team, partners in crime, and BFFs! They are freedom junkies and prolific content creators who have been coaching, speaking, writing, and teaching for more than a decade.

Joeel is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education and is currently completing his dissertation on eudaemonic happiness for his Ph.D. in Psychology. Using the science of psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs, leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their mind and create their destiny.


Joeel & Natalie have started more than a dozen businesses, including (in chronological order) imports, photography, non-profit teen center, life coaching, t-shirts, magazine, book publishing, professional speaking, conferences and workshops, holistic virtual office center, online directory, life coach training, online course publishing AND MORE!

They’ve taken what they’ve learned through their successes and (most importantly) failures, and today they run a powerhouse education and publishing company.


JOEEL’S BEGINNINGS: From an early age, Joeel faced adversity, including failing his first year of college and losing his brother to a car accident at the age of 19. This experience transformed his life and instilled a deep sense of purpose by inspiring him to give his brother Daniel’s name a meaning by helping others find their true path.

In 2009, he fulfilled his dream of opening a youth center in honor of his brother. Shortly thereafter, life called him a different direction and Natalie answered a Craigslist ad and took over his position of co-founder of this business.

NATALIE’S BEGINNINGS: After a decade of living a life that wasn’t authentically hers, and developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as a result, Natalie let go of everything and completely transformed. Through her journey to healing, she rediscovered her true self and greater purpose—to be an entrepreneur and inspire others to transform their lives. Natalie “retired” from the rat race at 24, put herself through school as a freelance designer. Days before graduating college (finally) she answered an ad for a business partner running a non-profit teen center.

JOINING FORCES: While Joeel & Natalie met for only 30 minutes during this transition of ownership, two years later they reconnected and recognized how synchronistically the stars had aligned to bring them together. They joke of the irony of how they “starting the same business, just not at the same time” and they’ve been co-creating in life and business ever since.

JOINING THE INFORMATION AGE: Joeel & Natalie joined the information age and became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they went “green” and transitioned their print magazine into digital format. They found they could reach an exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost—and they were hooked! They closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person workshops and training programs into information products and online courses.

THE NIGHTMARE/BLESSING: Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go “all-in” to the online world when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Natalie became his full-time caretaker and their businesses crumbled down around them. They decided they never wanted to be in that situation again, so they dedicated themselves to converting their training, coaching and speaking programs into online courses that would outlive them. Their new business model is based on investing in “the new real estate”, which is creating passive income through building a portfolio of educational content.

Today they have 300,000+ students from 195 countries. They are passionate about sharing their story and inspiring entrepreneurs to monetize their passion and knowledge in this new digital education economy.
