DALLAS, TX – April 10, 2014 – Live Happy LLC announces Kym Yancey as CEO and Co-Founder effective immediately. Previously Co-Founder, Chief Marketing Officer, and President of eWomenNetwork, North America’s premier women’s business network, Yancey will oversee Live Happy’s strategy development and business initiatives, which include Live Happy magazine and campaigns such as Acts of Happiness.
“Kym is recognized as one of the premier marketing and innovative thought leaders in North America, so his creativity, passion, and business savvy will be a valuable asset,” said Jeff Olson, Founder of Live Happy LLC. “As his previous venture was founded on the principles of ‘giving first and sharing always,’ his perspective aligns perfectly with that of Live Happy.”
As the benefits of increased happiness are scientifically proven – happy people live longer, earn more, are more productive, and are better citizens – Live Happy is dedicated to promoting and sharing authentic happiness through education, integrity, gratitude, and community awareness. Its magazine, Live Happy, continues to share information and resources to further the happiness movement, encouraging people embrace it, as well as help those who are struggling to define and choose their own happiness, inspiring readers to engage in living purpose-driven, healthy, meaningful lives. Live Happy also recently partnered with the United Nations for International Day of Happiness (March 20, 2014) with its Acts of Happiness campaign.
“I am thrilled to be part of this company that is not only dedicated to promoting and sharing happiness, but is committed to providing the most innovative, cutting-edge research in the context of real life, authentic issues and common-sense realities,” said Yancey. “Live Happy is unique in its mission to provide all the resources – magazine, website, leading experts, and research – in order to perpetuate the happiness movement that exists today.”
Prior to his role in the corporate world, Yancey launched one of the top multicultural advertising agencies in the U.S. He is also the recipient of more than 200 advertising and creative awards of excellence, the executive producer of the GLOW Project, and a finalist for Inc. Magazine's "Entrepreneur of the Year," as well as countless other top business achievement awards.
Live Happy also announced that Deborah Heisz, previously Senior Vice President, will assume the role of COO and Co-Founder where she will be responsible for the management and development of the Live Happy business and creative operations.
