Happiness coach Jo said:- "For me this award means the world, because when
we use the phrase health and beauty generally, the 1st thing people think
about, is physical health and beauty.
There is much more to be being happy than just physical appearances. Your
confidence, wellbeing and energy levels can all be affected by your mental state
We work with our clients to achieve happiness on all levels, but in particular we
focus on achieving a positive mindset and I am absolutely over the moon that
mental health and beauty has been recognised in this way; it shows there has
been a real shift in thinking in today's world."
Jo admits she was up against a tough line up of businesses in the health and
beauty category and didn't expect to win. She added:- "There were so many
inspirational women shortlisted for this award, so to win it feels incredible.
Being recognised by my peers for the work that I do is amazing."
Jo set up The Happiness Club two years ago.
Members of the club receive a daily message from Jo to help them approach life
with a more positive attitude. She also runs a live monthly webinar on different
themes and uses social media in particular Facebook to give members direct
access.Winning the Bizmums award has now prompted Jo to think about the future of the
business. She said:- "I'm amazed with how successful The Happiness Club
has become over the last 2 years. We already have members from across all areas
of the UK and my next step is to take the club global.
It's an online club, which means it's not confined to any one particular
geographical boundary so I'm currently working on ways and methods to achieve a
more global following. I'll also be continuing to build my career as an
inspirational speaker and author."
