About the Founder
Hi! I’m Natalie Britt.
I founded Big Happy Life because, as my life got bigger and more successful, I actually started feeling worse. I felt stressed and overwhelmed, I developed poor self-care habits and, over time, I became more and more depressed.
The point at which my life tipped into that “too big to cope” stage was when my husband and I adopted our two children (then aged 7 and 17 months). I had such high expectations about the kind of parent I was going to be and the kind of life I was going to create for them but the parent I was in reality bore no resemblance to the parent I expected I’d be.
Other parents kept telling me it was normal – “nobody’s perfect. We’re all too hard on ourselves,” and other similar advice and, although it’s true – we are hard on ourselves – I was sure I could do better. I wanted to do better.
I worked as a corporate coach and my work involved examining habits and identifying how teams got the results they got – what were they doing without ever really thinking about it and how did those things affect their results? I decided to take the same approach in my own life and discovered there were literally DOZENS of ways I could help myself feel better and therefore help myself do better.
Since starting down this road, I’ve become more like the parent I envisaged. I’m still a work in progress but I continue to make progress and the results are evident in my relationships with my children.
Along with that, I’ve seen improvements in my health, I’ve lost weight, I’ve managed to start a second company and build it up from the ground. I’m not afraid of trying new things anymore and I know I can trust myself to keep going when things are tough.
Big Happy Life is my way of sharing what I’ve learned so that you can have the same.
If you’re feeling stuck or lost but you know you are capable of great things, I believe Big Happy Life can help.
I’m quite practical and goal-driven so I like things that work and I like to understand why they work. I’m not very ‘woo woo’ so, although I’ll help you explore your beliefs and values, I’ll always do so from a practical perspective so we’re able to DO something useful with that information.
With Big Happy Life, you’ll learn about yourself at a deeper level and you’ll gain strategies that will help you feel better so you can do better and, ultimately, achieve what you’ know you’re capable of achieving.
