About this ebook

The 2:45 A.M. alarm was always going to have a shelf life.

Katie had an existence that looked great on paper with a big market on-air TV career. But out of the public view, she was miserable.

No one else was going to fix her situation.

In My Happy Place, Katie lays out her DIY roadmap to authentic personal bliss: how she self-audited and beat down roadblocks to actualize her most joyous path, plus her practical steps to ensure the good times keep rolling. A relatable, hopeful memoir/how-to hybrid, My Happy Place is for all the people-pleasers trying to take back control of their own lives.

“Katie’s writing is so authentic, you don’t even feel like you’re reading. You feel like you’re part of a great conversation. Be ready to cry a little and laugh a LOT. My Happy Place is both painful and uplifting, and filled with practical advice to find your own joy.”- Chris Jansen, Head of U.S. News and Publishing, Google

“My Happy Place is an entertaining, fun, and relatable read that shows what can happen when you bet on yourself and conquer the self-doubt nonsense that holds you back.” - Christine Hunsicker, Founder and CEO of CaaStle and Gwynnie Bee, star of Project Runway: Fashion Startup

“Success is so much more than a paycheck. For each of us to be truly happy, our work and lives need to strike a better balance. Katie’s powerful story proves the mainstream American concept of living the dream isn’t necessarily everyone’s ideal.” - Alejandro Bedoya, Professional Soccer Player, Philadelphia Union Captain, U.S. Men’s National Team

“Katie’s book is inspiring, relatable, humorous and a breath of fresh air! This is a wonderful book that will motivate you as well!” - Dr. Jennifer Caudle, Family Physician, TV Health Expert, Associate Professor, Rowan University

Taking a leap of faith isn't a simple decision when it comes to your career, financial security, and overall well being, but Katie showed us anything is possible if only you believe! In Katie's new book, My Happy Place: How I DIY'd My Own Bliss, you see her journey through the different stages of her career and at the same time get tid bits of personal growth motivation. Her fun, easy to read book, made this an enjoyable time that inspires one to reflect on their own life as well. It’s like talking to a great friend about your next move in life.

I finished My Happy Place in two days! My favorite books are always biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs and this book certainly did not disappoint. I’m sure many threads in this book will resonate with each reader. Some of the “aha” moments for me were how the author and I share a mutual respect for several individuals who have done much to empower women. She also highlighted the challenges of being a people pleaser and the “weakness” of being a perfectionist. The book has also made me more aware of the little things like noticing quotes that that make me smile! The how-to component of this book will definitely inspire everyone to work toward taking control of their own lives. I finally found my own Happy Place after my recent retirement. I learned so much from Katie and the path she took. My only regret is that I didn’t read this book earlier in my career! Please read and enjoy finding your Happy Place.

Katie Fehlinger has the right balance in this book. The author’s personality shines through as she shares her highs and lows. An easy read, “My Happy Place” is written in Katie’s voice, telling it like it is. Katie shares the methods used to realize what it really takes to bring personal happiness and how to apply them. This gives the reader the confidence to reevaluate and take the steps to find their own happy place. I have no doubt each reader's life will be touched in a personal way. After a break I'll be rereading and making notes, to help myself take an honest look at my life and what changes I want to make.
