Be Happy NOW! combines two unique voices to share an inspiring story of transformation and life lessons intended to guide others on how to attain authentic happiness and a true understanding of self.

On September 11, 2001, Alison Lanza Falls had a great career as a Wall Street banker, a caring and supportive family, and an enormous secret. She was silently and profoundly unhappy. After surviving 9/11, Alison realized she had been given another chance to really live.  However, she was still searching for solutions nearly nine years later, when she met David Prudhomme, founder of Mederi Wellness. David became Alison’s guide and mind coach, helping her to learn to look within, rather than looking to others and the trappings of success.  His seven-step process was a life-changing breakthrough.

If you or someone you know is seeking personal growth, or if you’re stuck, dissatisfied, or longing, and telling yourself that to be happy, you need to have this or be that, Be Happy NOW! is for you. You’ll learn how to choose your emotions, let go of past negative beliefs and feel free, practice forgiveness, release deep-seated fears, and learn to finally love yourself and others unconditionally.

Your true happiness is here, just waiting to be discovered by you. It is time for you to be happy. Not tomorrow, not someday. Be Happy NOW!
