The Mission

The founder of positive psychology, Martin Seligman, challenged the positive psychology community to achieve the following:

By 2051 51% of the world population should be flourishing.

That means that half of the people in the world feel that they are using their potential and leading a meaningful life. Will you be one of them? I am committed to this mission because I feel this is a purpose that will contribute to peace in this world and is therefore worth dedicating my life to. I feel like a NASA engineer must have felt, when J.F. Kennedy said, that they should go to the moon before the decade is over.













Recently I attended a workshop on positive psychology coaching (hey one has to stay abreast of current developments) and in a coaching session the magician, err I mean coach, projected an image of a turtle onto the screen to describe me. I jumped out of my seat, no freaking way, who told you that I am the turtle?!? So henceforth I am known to the people who were there as ‘Turtle-Girl’. Now you might be thinking why on earth would I mention such an unflattering animal in my bio, am I actively trying to not get any clients? Well it’s true I move slowly through this world and I tend to think about things for a long time (the good news is, by the time we meet, I have already done a lot of thinking, so you won’t notice that). Sometimes I will disappear in my shell but in a frenzied world that’s precisely what people have come to like. Peace. Deliberation. Thoughts that are connected to deep reserves of both reflection and personal experience. People tell me again and again that they feel truly heard. I walk the talk, constantly being my own guinea turtle. But make no mistake. After all the ninja turtles are turtles.

So if you would like to experience what a more peaceful way of being in your skull-sized kingdom is like or you want to feel the benefits of realistic optimism and a strengths way of living schedule a call. No sleezeball tactics, just a call to figure out whether we are compatible or not. If you are on the fence check out my writing or my internet radio show. I have recorded over 90 episodes of free positive psychology content, designed to both educate and help you apply the research to your own life. The podcast has been downloaded over 75’000 times in over 120 countries and

was featured in Elle Magazine (considering that I have been dressing in a hoody and jeans since I was 12 years old you might understand how gleefully bamboozled this particular development made me).

Thanks for stopping by and all the best.

Dear Kristen,
After reading all the way down to the point that my subconscious is telling me to get in touch with you, I had to smile and do it! I love your podcast and have listened to just about every single one. You have, and continue to make, a positive difference in my life. I’m sure the same is true for many others. Thank you for that.
I was wondering if you could explore the area of “getting unstuck”, so to speak. Obviously, I’m stuck. What I mean by that is this: I’m sort of at a crossroad and can’t seem to figure out which way to go, or how. As a single working mom for over 15 years with no financial help, my challenge to raise my two ‘babies’ was difficult but infinitely rewarding. I did things I might never have done to provide for them and in doing so became so much stronger and confident. I felt the fear and did it anyway as they say. I took jobs I hated (not all), and worked for bosses from hell because of the higher paying salaries. It stretched me professionally and personally, so no sour grapes here. But now – for the first time in my life – I can choose just for myself. Yikes! NOW what do I do?
Hope I’m making sense here. If you have any thoughts on the subject, I would be grateful. It would be so cool to meet you. You’ve become a sort of friend that is wise, insightful, and I suspect a truly kind person. If you’re ever in Connecticut (close to New York City), I would love to meet you. So once again, thank you so much for your optimistic, non-judgemental, intelligent and thought-provoking podcasts. You are making a difference!
All the best, Janet
