What People Are Saying…

This course has helped me to know what truly makes me happy. The themes of each month are perfect for exploring the many facets of a human life. I plan to take one of Gretchen’s suggestions and spend 2020 going through the course again with the goal of solidifying the habits that increase my happiness.

— Therese A.

This course really helped me get to know myself better and what REALLY makes me happy. Before I signed up, I didn’t feel like I was struggling with anything. But, now that I look back and compare myself now to where I was at the beginning of 2019, I’m living a better life. This course helped me have the courage to make a career change, solidify better eating, exercising, and sleeping habits, dejunk my house, spend more time outdoors, and partake of more joy in everyday life.

— Heather R.

I loved the friends I made in our small accountability group. It was great to have yearly and monthly goals to reflect on different areas of our lives. Having The Happiness Project on my mind for a full year has helped me recognize my tendencies and distinctions to understand why things aren’t working and make improvements that make me happier.

— Suzanne S.

Frequent Questions

Once I purchase the course, when will it start?

The minute you sign up, you’ll gain immediate access to the introductory videos and worksheets that provide an overview of the entire year. You’ll also gain access to all content for the month of January, so you can jump in right away to start brainstorming your January resolutions. The course officially begins on January 1, 2022. New content for the upcoming month unlocks on the 26th of the previous month.

What happens when the year is over?

When the year is over you will feel so proud of yourself for all you have accomplished—gold star for investing in yourself and your happiness! You have access to the course from the date you purchase through December 31, 2022. Your plan will not auto-renew. If you’re interested in maintaining access to the material and participating in the live calls and text messages in 2023, there will be an option to purchase an ongoing subscription next December.

I have already read your book, is this still for me?

Even if you’ve read my book The Happiness Project, this experience will help you implement all the ideas and tips through personalized, concrete, and manageable resolutions. The course also offers accountability that a book simply can’t, thanks to virtual coaching through SMS messages throughout the course, monthly live calls with me, and the opportunity to take the course alongside an accountability partner. If you haven’t read The Happiness Project, you don’t need to read it in order to participate in the course. If you want to get the book after you take the course to continue pondering the ideas, terrific, but not required.

What countries does this work for?

The course is available to anyone with an internet connection. Internet is required to watch the videos, download the worksheets, participate in live calls, and connect with the community. The SMS check-ins will be available for US/Canada phone numbers and via Whatsapp for international participants.

How long do I have access to the course content?

Purchasing the 2022 course grants you access to all the videos, worksheets, and live calls from now until December 31, 2022. If you’re interested in maintaining access to the material and continuing to participate in the live calls with Gretchen in 2022, there will be an option to subscribe next year. Your plan will not auto-renew if this is your first year.

What if I don’t want to receive text messages?

The SMS component of this course is completely optional. The primary course content is all available on the course website. You can choose to sign up for text message check-ins from Gretchen—but it’s not necessary in order to be a part of the course. The text messages from Gretchen are designed to nudge you, encourage you, and help you stay on track with your resolutions. If you’re going away or need to pause, you can stop and restart the text messages at any time. Don’t worry: we value your privacy and we will never share your number. The only messages you will receive are from Gretchen.

What are my payment options?

At this time, we only accept payment via credit card. We take privacy and protection of personal information very seriously. We do not view, save or store credit card information. Credit card information does not reside in our system in any way. To handle credit cards, we use Stripe, the same credit card processing platform used by millions of online retailers.
