I'll show you how to get the life you want
and love the life you've got!
There, it’s out there. I’ve said it.
… looking for my professional bio. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page.
You know when people find out I write about happiness and getting the most out of life, the first thing they always ask is, ‘but are you happy… do you really do what it says in your books?’ When I say, ‘yes’, they always look at me with an odd expression and say, ‘really?’
This puzzled me for a long time. I couldn’t understand why people were so surprised. I mean if I didn’t walk my talk, I’d be a fraud wouldn’t I?
And then I realised that when they looked at me, they weren’t seeing what they expected to see from someone who was openly making a declaration of happiness. I’m fit and healthy, but I’m not a perfect size eight. I live a very comfortable life, but there’s no squillion-dollar bank account, mega-mansion or Maserati in the drive. And while I might think my kids are perfect, they cry and scream and fuss just like everyone else’s.
And therein lies the cause of their confusion…
You see, most people are looking for happiness in all the wrong places. They think they’ll be happy when they’ve done this or got that; a promotion, a pay rise, a partner, a perfect figure, perfect kids, the perfect home. But true happiness is not a state of doing or having… it’s a state of being.
If you want to know more about how to be really happy; how to feel good about who you are and the life you live, then you’ve come to the right place.
I’m Domonique Bertolucci and I’m happy… and if you hang out with me, I’ll teach you how to be happy too.
I used to think there was nothing more important than achieving your goals. But now I know that loving the life you have right now is just as important.
My early life had the same ups and downs as most people, a friendship squabble here, a broken heart there, oh, and a car accident that nearly killed me. But it wasn’t until I hit my quarter life crisis – when I realised that although my life looked good on paper: well paying job, nice boyfriend, great clothes and a cool car, it was empty and unfulfilling to me – that I realised what it was really going to take to have a happy and fulfilling life.
I remember crying to my best friend that I thought my life would’ve been fabulous by now, and although my life was just fine, fine just wasn’t good enough.
I wanted a life that had meaning and purpose, and felt like the life I was supposed to be living. I wanted to enjoy my work, feel a deep connection to my partner and spend my time doing things I loved doing, with people I loved doing it with. I wanted a life that felt fabulous to me.
After transforming myself into a corporate high-flyer, I decided it was time to set out on my own and instead of working with companies that needed to change, I started coaching people who wanted to.
I’ve worked with some of the country’s most successful people, helping them to achieve the ambitions they have for their professional life, without giving up or losing sight of what matters in the rest of their life. I show them how to be successful AND happy.
All through my school years, my teachers told me to stop talking; that my constant urge to communicate was going to stop me from achieving my potential.
Just. A. Little. Bit. Wrong.
I’ve written six books, been interviewed hundreds of times and spoken to huge live audiences. In fact a media monitoring company dug up the snappy little fact that more than 10 million people have seen, read or heard my advice.
Hello, Mr Plummer, talking IS my potential!
To sum it all up, I’d have to say that being happy is my life’s work. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it ;-)
I’m Domonique Bertolucci… and I’m happy.
Domonique Bertolucci is the best-selling author of The Happiness Code: 10 keys to being the best you can be, and the closely guarded secret behind some of the country’s most successful people.
Born in Australia, Domonique’s first career as a fashion model took her to London at 22 where, realising she was never going to be a ‘waif’, she underwent a life makeover; from model to corporate high-flyer. After ten years in the corporate sector, where she earned a reputation for turning around under-performing teams, Domonique knew it was time for another makeover. In 2003 she completed her Diploma of Life and Executive coaching and established her consultancy, the Domonique Bertolucci Company (DBC Global) where she continues to offer a range of personal and professional leadership programs as well as a range of keynotes, seminars and workshops collectively known as Life+.
Domonique is passionate about the importance of getting the life you want and loving the life you’ve got. She has a client list that reads like a who’s who of CEOs and business identities, award-winning entrepreneurs and celebrities, and her workshops and online courses are attended by people from all walks of life, from all around the world. Domonique helps her clients define their personal happiness prescription and then shows them exactly how to make it their reality.
Since writing her first book, Your Best Life, in 2006, Domonique has become Australia’s most popular life strategist and happiness coach. More than ten million people have seen, read or heard her advice.
Domonique has gone on to write three more best-selling books: The Happiness Code (Jan 2012), Love Your Life (Jan 2013), One Hundred Days Happier (Oct 2013) and Less is More (March 2014), The Kindness Pact (Jan 2015). Her seventh book, The Daily Promise is scheduled for release in September 2016. Her books are available throughout the English speaking world and her weekly email Love Your Life is read in more than 60 countries. Domonique divides her time between London and Sydney, but her reach is truly global. In addition to her Australian clients, she has coached people in London, Amsterdam, Paris, New York, Toronto, Singapore and Hong Kong.
When she is not working, Domonique’s favourite ways to spend her time are with her husband and two children, reading a good book, and keeping up the great Italian tradition of feeding the people that you love.
