HAPPY STARTUP SCHOOL : HAPPY TIPIS
HAPPY START UP SCHOOL
Going back to school might not be something that many of us relish, however having a career change is now becoming a lot more desirable; There is no such thing as a ‘normal’ career path and many people only realise they are stuck in a rut, when they meet others who inspire them to get out.
If you have no idea what else you could do – or where to start, the worst thing to do is to judge yourself by everyone else’s definition of success, chasing money and not your dream. After all, in the grand scheme of things, job satisfaction is a lot healthier than a string of noughts in your bank account and no time to enjoy them. Money is no fun on your own, and as social creatures, we need to feel part of something bigger to develop a deep, lasting happiness.
The Happy Startup School is an initiative started seven years ago to help individuals who were feeling unfulfilled and wanted to make a difference to someone or something. Founded by a community of entrepreneurs, creatives and change makers committed to building a life and business rich with purpose, the scheme has mushroomed into a phenomenon where like-minded individuals are on hand for support and guidance across for all kinds of budding entrepreneurs, career changers, small business owners, freelancers, creatives, technologists, coaches, consultants, teachers, practitioners and the curious.
With money being a narrow view of the term success, individuals are much more consciously awareness, and are actively trying to improve their environment, and the HSS is a hub of like-minded folk who are happy to share and inspire their knowledge.
This year’s Summer Camp was sold out, and we provided two of our tipis for the festival experience in the stunning grounds of Frickley Lake in East Sussex. Along with glamping bell tents, visitors had access to inspirational speakers, woodland workshops, idea pitches, yoga, wellbeing and massage, hot tubs, karaoke, disco, delicious food and live music.
However, the main outcome was meeting a likeminded group of friendly people who understand the potential of working together to make the world a better place.
The Happy Startup School are big believers in that you don’t need an ego to survive and making an impact on the world comes from within. We were happy to be part of that journey and hope we can continue to share the love and ride the wave with our fellow entrepreneurs.
