I’ve earned millions of dollars and I’ve done very well. But here’s the takeaway: I’m 59 years old. I’m not particularly good at social media and I’m worse at technology. And I’m at the top of my game. I am happier than I’ve ever been and more excited than I’ve ever been because one of the biggest successes in my life is the overabundance of awesome people that I have in my life.

As I enter into my sixties, I’ve realized that success is more about the inner game than the money. I’ve created a community to share the journey of my quest for the ultimate success – happiness – and hacks I learn along the way of Hacking happy. I’ll also be sharing the business tips and tactics that got me the financial success, but this is about more than money, it’s about fulfillment, joy, and creating a legacy.

If this sounds exciting to you, you’re invited to join the Hacking Happy Community. It’s free to join, but participation is what will get you results and growth.

I’m passionate about business but I’m obsessed with cooking. My greatest joy is in creating in the kitchen, preparing a meal my friends and family will enjoy. Being together, celebrating, conversing, that’s the experience of life and community. That’s the connections.

In the kitchen, I get to express my creativity, find time to relax, and enjoy conversations with my family. It’s food that brings us together and nourishes our bodies and hearts. A great meal brings people together, to share what’s happening in their lives, their hopes, and their dreams. Great meals bond us, inspire us, and heal us.

I’m excited to share this year’s Hacking Happy Holidays Cookbook with you. Inside you’ll find my favorite healthy, wholesome holiday recipes to enjoy with your family. Please share pictures of what you create and the experiences you enjoy!



Lisa has worked especially hard and been very fortunate. She’s consulted, helped start companies, taught and trained all over the world, and spoken on some of the most significant industry stages. It wasn’t always that way.

Lisa’s early success was in traditional business, but it was in a family business that she didn’t enjoy and eventually landed her in a prison camp (more to that story). When she left the family business, network marketing was a welcomed escape. After a few years, she’d replaced her traditional income and was earning a solid $200,000 a year.

Returning to network marketing, Lisa consulted for friends’ companies and in 2001 decided to start building a new team with one of those companies. Soon she was earning a 7-figure income and established herself as a thought leader within the space. This part of her journey took her all over the world, including Asia, where she lived off and on for 15 years.

In the early days, Lisa thought network marketing was “interesting,” and through the years she’s formed the belief that it is so much more – it is an opportunity to change the world in this space, to mentor, teach, and counsel others to create an income and a life they would never imagine. To do for others. Give to others. Make a difference to others. And what a journey it’s been.

At the top of the awesome people list is Lisa’s family. She and her husband Steve have been happily married for more than 30 years and are proud parents of two daughters, Hillary and Lauren. Hillary has followed in her mother’s footsteps and is in business for herself. Lauren recently returned from working as a marketing specialist for 5 years in Hong Kong. “I am so grateful to have the best husband on the planet. But the most important thing I’ve ever done is being a mom to my daughters. They are the joy of my life, and my family is the reason I do everything I do.”
