ABOUT THE HAPPY STARTUP SCHOOL
Whilst building our own business and working with dozens of entrepreneurs, we’ve learnt a little along the way.
Firstly that passion & purpose go a long way
Also we’ve seen that companies that delight their customers tend to be more successful
Brands that are honest, authentic and transparent build loyal followers of passionate customers
And happy teams make better products (positive people are contagious and produce better work)
A new happier era beckons?
We’re seeing a movement of people that want to start businesses firstly as a lifestyle choice, and secondly to make money. Working with people you like on a business you believe in, means everyone can work together towards a common, meaningful goal.If you’re leaving a well–paid job to set out on your own then surely you’re not doing it purely to bring in more cash. More often than not you can do this quicker by sticking with what you know. No, many new business owners are choosing to work differently – reasons can include:
Spending more time doing what they love
Wanting more time with their family
Having the flexibility to make better life choices
Working with people they like
Solving problems they see that need fixing
Making a difference in the world
We see that a new breed of entrepreneur is choosing happiness above profits. Although it needn’t be either one or the other. Study after study proves that happy teams make more money. Just think about it for a second. Happy employees are nicer to be around, like making their customers happy and work harder. And also happy customers spend more money, are more loyal and like spreading the word to their friends and family. What’s not to like?
