Crissy Butts is a Happiness Coach at YourChooseYourPath.com and associate of the Safety Institute. I help companies realize that Happy Workers are Safer Workers which makes P.R.IM.E. Teams! (Productive, Resilient, Involved, More committed and Engaged.)
As a professional speaker and trainer, I teach people how to elevate their happiness, strengthen their relationships, increase their positive interactions and find a sense of greater purpose and meaning in every day life.
The Workplace Power Hour is one of five programs that I’ve developed and is coupled with The Family Power Hour. Books I have written include, You Choose Your Path, 50 Ways to Strengthen Family in 50 Days, and coming soon, Happier Connected.
I have worked with Microsoft, Fathers and Families Coalition of America, written for International Focus Magazine and been endorsed by leaders from JetBlue, BlueZones, and Child and Protective Services.
I got into happiness coaching concerned for the increase of divorce, depression, addictions and the tragedy of losing 4 family members to suicide; these factors affect the family unit, the workplace, communities, national security and the economy.
My husband and I have been married 30 years, we have 5 children, 15 grandchildren, a cat, 2 parakeets and have lived in the Alaska Tundra and the Costa Rica Jungle. See video link for book promo: https://youtu.be/qV9tXBrHYxY
