In short, this is the program we wish had existed for us back when we were stuck in a rut and feeling our lives pass us by while trying to figure out how to get unstuck and rediscover our purpose, our thing, our "this is why I'm here" reason to leap out of bed in the morning. Ever feel that way? You're about to change everything. You're in the right place…
When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we’re older, and the older we get, the harder we make things for ourselves.
You see, when we were young we saw the world through simple, hopeful eyes. We knew what we wanted and we had no biases or concealed agendas. We liked people who smiled. We avoided people who frowned. We ate when we were hungry, drank when we were thirsty, and slept when we were tired.
As we grew older our minds became gradually disillusioned by negative external influences. At some point we began to hesitate and question our instincts. When a new obstacle or growing pain arose, we stumbled and fell down. This happened several times. Eventually we decided we didn’t want to fall again, but rather than solving the problem that caused us to fall, we avoided it all together.
As a result, we ate comfort food and drank alcohol to numb our wounds and fill our voids. We worked late nights on purpose to avoid unresolved conflicts at home. We started holding grudges, playing mind games, and subtly deceiving others and ourselves to get ahead. And when it didn’t work out, we lived above our means, used lies to cover up lies, and ate and drank some more just to make ourselves feel better again.
Over the course of time, we made our lives harder and harder, and we started losing touch with who we really are and what we really need.
If you’re nodding your head, then you understand the need for Getting Back to Happy.
Effective. Confident. Energetic. Successful. Connected. Clear-headed. Courageous. Attractive. Comfortable in your skin. Free from addictions and habits that hold you back. Free from toxic relationships. Propelled by a sense of purpose. Secure in your zone of inner, creative genius. Driven by your true potential to the point of realizing your dreams. Awakened to the positive changes you're making in your life and the lives around you on a major scale. Slim, trim, and uninterested in french fries.
Seriously, how many times have you wished these qualities would just wash over you, and that you'd wake up one day as an unstoppable version of YOU?
If you're like we were, you've lost count.
Marc and I wandered around aimlessly for years, individually, not knowing what to do, or how to get back on track. And we just wanted a program to help us feel alive and powerfully human (without the need for alcohol, pills and junk food), and show how to serve ourselves and the people we love in the biggest and best way possible.
Today that program exists! So can you promise us something?
We know you have a big purpose and lots of potential to bring to the world. Let's promise: No more wishing. No more reading self-help books and listening to inspiring podcasts and never taking action. No more days, weeks and months flying by while you stay stuck in the same exact uncomfortable place you've been for years. This is your time, and Getting Back to Happy is your turning point.
Getting Back to Happy is the go-to course for anyone serious about taking action to reclaim their happiness and realize their potential. It will help you wake up every day and live with a full sense of purpose, even if you've tried everything else. If you've been wanting a way to work with Marc and me, this is it: It's the result of a decade of study and one-on-one coaching with thousands of people just like you from all over the world. It's a proven system that works time and time again to bust people out of long ruts and get them back on track to living a life they are excited about.
From proven ways to foster stronger relationships to actions engineered to help you let go of painful emotions, the learning modules in this course will inspire and equip you to become your best self.
But now you're wondering what your life will look like after you complete the course, right? That's the whole idea here—what YOU will come away with and how your life will change.
To start, here's what some of our current Getting Back to Happy members told us:
As you can tell, what each person gets out of Getting Back to Happy is unique and personal. The same will be true for you. But one thing is certain…
Other programs? Those old self-improvement books you've read? They didn't work for you because they were filled with ideas that weren't backed by time-tested action steps and a supportive community to push you forward when the going gets tough. So they were ultimately a step back. Back to hoping and dreaming and wishing for a fix. Back to the drawing board of "if only I could_____" and "maybe someday when_____."
Does that sound about right? And maybe that has left you feeling doubtful, like this probably won't work either. Like, "It might work for other people, but not me."
We know how you feel. We were let down by other training programs and and self-improvement resources too. Time and time again, we put our hopes and money and energy into expensive courses, books, audio programs, and even live events that didn't work out. Some provided decent insight, but all of those insights came with the assumption that we could somehow put them into action ourselves… rather than providing the tools, action steps, and support to actually do it.
This time is different, because Getting Back to Happy is different. It's whole purpose is to rewire your brain so you feel the strength that's already within you, and then, with a supportive community behind you, you're able to take precise, life-changing action.
I’ve never really looked to online communities for help, let alone bought into an online course, but a friend who saw that I had been really struggling suggested your site to me. I swear, I think you’ve saved my life. Especially right at this moment more than ever, after a few rough years with a failing marriage, your advice perfectly describes the absolute messed up situation I’m in, and gave me a clear path back to feeling better and doing better. Thank you so much for totally changing my life these past few months.
People just like you—our private coaching clients—all over the world are choosing to get back to happy. You have permission to make the same choice. We hope you do because we’re rooting for you.

Marc and Angel, I just want to say thanks for our coaching sessions. You have helped me on my journey from a very dark place. You guys are wonderful/amazing people with a job with so much purpose. I feel I am in a pretty strong mindset now and I'm ready to go to court tomorrow to fight the good fight for my children. It was a privilege to speak with you both and work through your happiness course material. I look forward to continuing my personal growth journey with you.
If so, we’d love to welcome you into our exclusive Getting Back to Happy community. Together, we are the force for the positive change we hope to see in the world.
Or keep reading to make sure this program is the right fit for YOU…
1You feel that Marc and I are writing directly to you on our blog.
That’s a good sign that our principles for happiness really resonate with you. And it’s a positive indicator that right now may be the optimal time to dig deeper into those ideas.
2You are committed to positive change, but you don’t know where to start.
First of all, congratulations! Committing is the first step. Getting started comes next and can be confusing. Thankfully, with Getting Back to Happy, starting is easy.
3Your friends and family tell you that they want to see you happier.
Your genuine friends and family have your best interests at heart. They’re also going to tell you what you need to hear. Listen to their advice and start getting back to happy.
4Your personal and career growth has stalled and you’re left treading water.
No one likes hitting a plateau in their growth. A boost of happiness may be just the thing you need to reignite your pursuit of the work and life goals that matter to you.
5You find yourself in tense situations that leave you confused and guessing.
Chaos is often confusing. You’re not alone when that happens. Get the upper hand on the situation(s) by seeking renewed clarity of conviction, emotion, and purpose.
6You’re content with your life, but don’t want to become a victim of complacency.
Happiness can quickly sour if you stop seeking your true potential. The pursuit of happiness requires consistent choices and actions that leave you feeling fulfilled.
7You want people to understand you better and value you more.
We all want to be appreciated for who we are and what we can do. Happiness fuels confidence, which then fuels the strength you need to project yourself to your fullest.
8You’ve false started with becoming happier in the past, and want to try again.
Sometimes people fall off the bandwagon. If that happens, the best thing to do is to get right back on. Our course is here to help you get going again, and for the long haul.
9You’re struggling to forgive someone, or want to receive forgiveness yourself.
Giving and receiving forgiveness is a very strong factor in our happiness. We all make mistakes from time to time. How we handle forgiveness in those moments makes a world of difference.
10You sense more is possible and are excited to seize the opportunity.
Part of the magic of happiness is that it enables you to achieve things you never thought you could. You don’t know unless you try. Happiness will show you the way.
In the Goals and Growth module of your Getting Back to Happy course, I feel, literally, like you are speaking to me about a big career decision I’m in the middle of making. Your wisdom hits home like a grand slam. You are helping me live a life that feels right to me, not one that looks right to others. You are helping me make life-changing promises to myself, and keep them. Thank you for your wonderful offerings from your course, website, newsletters, and book.
Bottom line: If you're not serious about taking your life, career or business to the next level, this course is not for you.
This course really can change your life and get you back on the fast track to happiness and success... but only for those who are willing to invest their time, money and a few afternoons to get ahead and get back on track.
Now you might be wondering what the cost is. Before we get to that, let's figure this out first...
That's a question you have to ask yourself. The way we see it, Getting Back to Happy is an investment. An investment in YOU. An investment in a happier, simpler, more fulfilling future. An investment in living your life at an exceptional level from this moment forward.
Which means it's not some generic, run-of-the-mill program. We're literally condensing a decade of knowledge gathered from one-on-one coaching with thousands of people just like you, from all over the world, into a single self-paced course. We're giving you EVERYTHING.
How much do you think this knowledge is worth? What if I told you...
You can get exactly what you want for yourself starting today. You can get back to exciting, invigorating times in your professional life. You can get back to happier, simpler times in your personal life. You can fix your broken relationships, let go of your painful past, and make real, lasting progress on your biggest dreams.
But you can’t do it alone. None of us can. Just like the most accomplished athletes, actors, singers, CEOs, and entrepreneurs need the guidance of an experienced coach, so do you. The price tag for an experienced coach, however, is not cheap.
The cost of personal, professional, and relationship coaching by an experienced coach or counselor in the United States varies widely, dictated by geographical location and a client’s needs. In terms of dollars and cents, fees on average will be a couple hundred dollars per hour, which quietly adds up to over $15,000 per year. Here's how it breaks down...
Let’s assume you get an incredible deal and find an experienced coach for $150 per hour, and you see her two afternoons a week for a year.
($150 an hour) x (2 hours of coaching a week) x (52 weeks in a year) = $15,600 for a year’s worth of coaching
BUT… here comes the really great news…
Let's assume that you substitute that 2 hours a week of coaching for mastering the proven strategies and techniques in Getting Back to Happy – the same exact strategies and techniques Marc and I have used in our coaching practice to help tens of thousands of people over the past decade.
Now, as a training program that solves one of the modern day's biggest problems – achieving lasting happiness and success in our personal and professional lives – this information is worth thousands of dollars. NO QUESTION.
Our private coaching clients have paid tens of thousands of dollars for the same information and access to us. All the people we consulted with in the making of this program told us we should be charging $4,000-$5,000 for it. If we offered all of these life-changing strategies as a live training or seminar, it would be a month-long event and we would charge at least $5,000 for it. Probably more.
But because we can offer this program to you in an online, at-home format, we're going to make this program available to you at a price that's affordable.
Instead of charging thousands of dollars for this valuable information and training, we're going to offer it to you at the low investment of only $497.
As you can calculate yourself, even if you only decide to study this program for one hour a week, at the end of the year you will have received over $7,500 worth of valuable coaching and training. In other words, this program will pay for itself 10x over in just a few months. Imagine the value and benefits of the investment over your lifetime... it's a no-brainer.
In fact, it's likely that this program could be the single best financial investment you've ever made in your life (and we're 100% sure that it will be).
So you spend 1 or 2 hours a week mastering the precise strategies and techniques you would get from a highly experienced coach (or two coaches in this case), but rather than spending $7,500-$15,600, you get the same life-changing benefits and time-tested lessons from Getting Back to Happy for over 90% off.
And honestly, as the community grows and we add even more value into the program, the price will gradually go up (for new members) to reflect this added value. But right now, we want everyone to get grandfathered in to the current price point so they can experience the increase in happiness, success, productivity, and freedom that comes from effectively managing your life.
So to sweeten the pot even more, we're going to make things even more ridiculously valuable by also giving you...
To celebrate the release of Getting Back to Happy, for a limited time we're bundling the program with two valuable bonuses well worth $1,400... for FREE.
Normally we would offer these as extra add-ons that you could purchase separately, but we want to give you the best bang for your buck and show you our appreciation for getting in early.
This is to give people like you an edge above anyone else when you're one of the first to start Getting Back to Happy. These bonuses include...
1A full year of email and phone support by Marc and me
To make sure you’re getting the daily support you need to get the most out of Getting Back to Happy, to successfully create a life you love. (regularly priced at $1,000 by itself)
2Audio versions of all Getting Back to Happy course lessons
So you can listen and re-listen and master these life-changing techniques and strategies on the go. (regularly priced at $397 by itself)
Within the first 30 days, if you don’t see significant progress in your life, let us know and we will refund 100% of your money.
It really is that simple: join the program today and try it for yourself. If the powerful strategies and techniques don't increase your happiness and help improve your life in 30 days, just email us and we'll give you your money back. No questions asked.
In addition to our 100% money-back guarantee, here's our promise to you:
We've designed Getting Back to Happy from the ground-up to work for YOU. Believe me, we have spent the past decade studying the psychology of happiness and coaching thousands of people just like you. We know the program will change your life because it contains the same strategies and techniques we’ve used to change thousands of lives already.
No prior knowledge or reading is required to get the most out of Getting Back to Happy. In fact, because it is built almost entirely of universal happiness and success principles, you will be able to take any concept that you learn and "plug it" into your existing self-improvement system if you already have one. And if you don't, once you've gone through Getting Back to Happy, you will have all the building blocks to build a highly effective and efficient system that is custom-tailored to your personality and lifestyle.
Once you've gone through Getting Back to Happy and implemented the strategies and techniques your brain will be re-wired to be happier—it will be a physical impossibility NOT to be happier. If you aren't living a more fulfilling life after you've gone through the course for 30 days, just let us know and we'll stick by our claims and refund you immediately.
Again, as veteran life and business coaches, we routinely charge clients thousands of dollars for our proven happiness and success secrets. We love those in-person, hand-in-hand relationships, but we felt something was missing in our work. What we discovered was that we missed not being able to make those proven methods available to you. Until now.
Marc and Angel, your Getting Back to Happy course has really been a perfect launching pad for getting me back on track in my life. It's exactly what I needed to help implement the principles you discuss on your blog and in your book. In fact, my wife and I both find your advice insightful and inspiring. You've really helped us think about our life and relationship more effectively. Your course has helped us see the positives in some pretty darn tough situations life has thrown at us in the past few months. And I love that your course is structured in such a way that we can dive in and out of lessons at any time for just the specific guidance we need. Thank you for everything.
Even if you agree with everything you've read here, you still have to commit to the ideas and techniques in this course. We worked very hard to provide you with every tool you need to elevate your happiness and return to the life you want. This stuff works, but only if you let it. If you do, it will change your life for the better—and for forever. We created Getting Back to Happy as the happy medium between our free blog and our premium life coaching. At a fraction of our coaching prices, you can gain access to the same life-changing methods that we help our clients understand and implement.
Remember: Everyone deserves to be happy, including you. Inside Getting Back to Happy, you’ll discover what it takes to get back to a happier, simpler life worth celebrating .
It all comes down to a choice—your choice. Will you choose to stay the course and accept the status quo? Or will you choose to take control of your circumstances and find true happiness? Positive change is possible, if you choose it. You can do this. Let’s do it together.
Q: How does the course work?
A: Getting Back to Happy is an online, self-paced course. You can log into the course anytime, anywhere so long as you have an Internet connection. Simply launch a web browser, visit the course website, and log in.
Q: How long will I have access to the course?
A: Although the course is a one-time payment, you’ll have access to the course forever! It’s lifetime access. We want you to return to Getting Back to Happy time and again—to learn more, to sharpen your skills, to engage in the community, to ask Marc and me questions.
Q: Are the videos in this course live, or is there a live video component?
A: Marc and I spent a lot of time planning, recording, and editing the videos in the course. They’re all pre-recorded. And there is no live video component to the program. That said, all of the engagement is live among us and the other members of Getting Back to Happy.
Q: Will this course work for me?
A: Yes, if you let it. We believe not only in the power of bold ideas but also in the magic of decisive action. To gain the most value possible from this course, you must unite both—the ideas with the action. We’re here to help you do it, but it begins by helping yourself.
Q: How is Getting Back to Happy different from your blog or book?
A: Our blog and book are both fantastic resources to living a happier and more fulfilling life. If you’re just getting started with your journey of understanding the forces of happiness and what all it takes to maximize your potential, then the blog and book are nice starting points. The course is the next step beyond the blog and book. We made this course for those ready to dig deep into the concepts that underpin the blog and book. It’s for people ready to act.
Q: Will you be adding more content into the course over time?
A: Yes, but to be honest, the course is already bursting at the seams with learning modules and action plans. So we don't want to add more too soon. We want to be careful not to overwhelm our community members. When it makes sense to add more material into the course, we absolutely will. We will, however, be sharing lots of fresh strategies and tips in the discussion forums for each lesson on a weekly basis.
Q: I read this whole page and am still confused about how to get started. Help!
A: It’s okay! This is a long web page. If you’re serious about choosing to overcome the struggles and obstacles life has thrown in your path, then all you need to do is click here to get started. Easy-peasy!
