Tired of feeling exhausted by life but overwhelmed
at the idea of working out what next?


What if there was a simple way to inject more of what makes you feel good
into each day NOW!

Introducing Start Simple, Be Happy


The place to start when you don’t know where to start!


Here’s what the tribe are saying about Start Simple, Be Happy


I’m in love with the idea of being an imperfect experimenter






I so appreciate the reinforcement that action breeds clarity and not the other way around




I didn’t appreciate or perhaps I simply forgot that happiness doesn’t come uninvited - it is a practice, and like everything if not exercised and repeated it doesn’t grow. Thank you Penny


Do you long to wake feeling energised and excited by life, but instead find yourself stuck on a hamster wheel and lacking the self-confidence and the time to get off and start thriving?


I feel you!

          I’m Penny -

Imperfect experimenter, yoga lover, recovering perfectionist and believer in possible.

I’m also a Happiness Hacker on a mission to teach 10 million humans how to find happiness on their terms by 2025. 

But it wasn’t always this way.

Back in 2014 I was exhausted, overwhelmed and longing for change. I knew I could be happier but had no idea where to begin. So, I did something crazy. I turned my whole life upside down in pursuit of happiness. I left a 16-year career as an executive in a global giant, relocated my family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship, and started my own company hackinghappy.co

My obsession with making the world a happier pIace led me to develop the Intentional Adaptability Quotient® (IAQ). A world-first Hacking Happiness toolkit that enables you to build the skill you need to start living your happiest life now.

I’ve now supported thousands around the world in ditching exhaustion and overwhelm in exchange for more of what feels good… and I’ve packaged up everything I’ve learnt to enable you to make a start on doing the same.


Start Simple, Be Happy

  • stop your inner perfectionist from holding you back

Here's what’s waiting for you inside…​

This session is designed to build your confidence in getting off the start line and into the role of imperfect experimenter when it comes to realising more of what you want from life. Together we will explore how action breeds clarity, why practice is powerful and how to lean into uncertainty to unlock possibility. Walk away with a simple plan to kick start your hacking happiness practice.

Getting started can feel overwhelming right? It’s not like there’s a perfect plan when it comes to hacking happiness or perhaps there is... we just need to look at it through a different lens. The Imperfect Plan is a simple step-by-step tool that enables you to let go of perfect and lean into experimental in order to get started. Walk away with a simple set of actions you can take now to move you closer to where you want to be.

Here’s a peak at what’s inside

Your environment has a direct impact on how you feel, which is why creating your very own happy space is critical to making the change you seek. This video lesson will teach you how to create the physical space that energises, motivates, and enables you to focus on more of what matters.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Most of us unconsciously activate a reactionary mode, checking email, sorting the kids, looking at social media. This video lesson will teach you how to take a proactive approach to the start of  your day enabling you to take back control of where your day goes and inject more of what matters to you into it!

How often do you use the word busy? Have you ever considered how the use of this word is impacting your mindset, your behaviour, your relationships, and ultimately your happiness? This video lesson will explore why busy = bullshit and how removing the word from your vocabulary can create the space for more of what lights you up.

How often do you get to the end of the day and feel crap because you’re looking at an incomplete To Do List? In this video lesson we will learn why progress matters more than perfection and how to create a visual practice to track your progress and feel good about yourself at the end of each day.

Did you know fear is the number one barrier to making the change we long for? In this video lesson you will explore why fear is one of the greatest levers you have to shape the change you seek. Learn how to build your courage muscle through micro bravery, amplifying your self-belief, your resilience, and unlocking possibility.

Are you ready to kick exhaustion and overwhelm to the curve and inject more of what feels good into each day?



Here’s what I’ve learnt about ready:

It’s rare that we ever feel fully ready to lean into change (especially the big, hard, life-changing change).


Ready is often an elusive future state that we believe we will magically arrive at when we’ve…


>> Become clear on the perfect plan (which doesn’t exist!) so that we can avoid failure.

>> Built the confidence to believe we can, and not care what others think.

>> Built the financial independence to ensure a backup plan for when it doesn’t work out.


The challenge is, the longer you wait the longer it will take. It’s the action that breeds the clarity and allows you to build the skills that you feel you need to be ready. Which is exactly what Start Simple, Be Happy is designed to do. Get you off the start line and into action that progresses you closer to where you long to be.

Now is your time!


I know I long to make change and that I could be happier but I’m not sure what that looks like. Is this still the right program for me?

How much time will I need to commit to my learning experience?

How do I get access to all the goodies in Start Simple, Be Happy?

Do you guarantee that this course will make me happier?

I have another question…​
