Writer Cheryl Reid-Simons reports on Cathy Haffner of BetterBecause and her vision to "find happiness in the everyday". It's a terrifc article for Seattle University's magazine.
Click blog title above to read the entire story which starts, "Cathy Haffner, ’83, traded in the stress and demands of corporate life and started a movement that is rooted in happiness—finding joy and contentment in everyday life. Plenty of people daydream about rebooting their lives, but it's rare to find someone who actually does it. It's rarer still to find someone who does it while perched on one of the highest rungs of the corporate ladder.
But that's exactly what Cathy Haffner, '83, did two years ago, quitting her job as senior vice president..., co-writing a book and launching an inspirational movement to promote the little and big things that make life better. In the process she traded boardroom presentations to executives for workshops in women's shelters and book club meetings. And she says her life is better because of it."
