  • 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!

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 tens of thousands of people from over 145 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!

Lead Instructors & Coaches

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. 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.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
