The Happy When Syndrome is the belief that you’ll be happy when you achieve something or get this or that. And the truth is, you are. For one fleeting moment you’re sitting on top of the world, untouchable, unstoppable, and then . . . the realization that you need more settles in. We’ve all fallen into this trap and many of us struggle to get out of this behavioral pattern—until now. Listen in, as life-coaches Amanda Kaufman and Carolyn Barsky guide you to creating the life you really, truly want.

Amanda’s an executive coach, speaker, wife, mother, productivity/performance nerd, and sincere advocate in helping you crush your performance goals. Prior to formally launching her coaching practice, Amanda spent a decade as a strategist, mentor, and leader, traveling all over North America to serve her high-end profile clients all while raising a young family and pursuing several personal goals at the same time. Carolyn’s a certified life/career coach and the owner of Compass Maven, a company that helps women in their 20s and early 30s gain the clarity and confidence they need to get unstuck and turn the lives and careers of their dreams into reality.

Whatever life stage you’re in, release yourself from the pressure of having to have it all figured out and be open to what lies ahead!
