My name is Andee Flynn and I am an author, a speaker, a teacher and a personal coach. I believe in living a joyful life. When I was a little girl I always made the same wish upon a star. I wished that I could be happy. I grew up with a great mom and dad who did amazing things to raise me. But along the way, stuff happened. I saw things little kids shouldn’t see, I went places kids shouldn’t have to go and I experienced some pretty big challenges. That’s probably why I was wishing on every star I could.
As I grew up, my choices began affecting every area of my life. And they weren’t affecting it too well. I had this inner sense that something wasn’t right. I was having troubles setting healthy boundaries with people, I had challenges with dating, and even though I had a stellar education, I just never felt good enough.
On my journey, I found a lot of self-help books and seminars that would tell me to just change the way I was thinking. Sounds easy enough. I would read a book, get inspired, but I stayed stuck. I had no idea how to change my life.
In 2000, I made a clear decision that I was done. I started using specific tools and techniques to get me out of the rut I was in. I began to see real and lasting differences in my life. I had better friendships. I gained a real sense of self-worth. I came to intuitively know how to handle situations that used to baffle me.
After many years of teaching, I began to branch out. In 2009, I started speaking. Since then, I have shared my story and spoken to thousands, teaching, inspiring, and empowering them to make lasting change in their lives. Today, I teach smaller classes and speak to large groups. But I also work one-one one, coaching people to make changes on the specifics in their lives. At present, I am focusing much of my energy on loving my family and raising our little one. I am still available for private coaching. Although you will not read about it as much as before, if you are interested, e-mail me here for details.
I started Joyful Project because I want to share what I have. I am here to give you practical tips, tools, and inspiration for daily living. I share from the truth of who I am and where I am. When you come to visit me here you’ll get a little bit of my family life, a little bit of my recovery journey and a lot about the faith that got me here. I’m all about making it real. And I’m all about helping you live a joyful life.
