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

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.

Just when you think you know someone, you realize you don't. We all thought that Katie Fehlinger was the woman who had it all. Fame, beauty, family and happiness. Well she didn't. She tells us about her struggles, and what it cost her along the way. But more importantly she shows us all how to get out of the trap that lifestyle can sometimes create. In an incredible one on one style she teaches us all how to finally be truly happy with our lives and ourselves. A truely fantastic read that you will not put down.

Katie's raw, open way of writing made this a very easy read. It was almost like I was sitting and talking with her over a cup of coffee. Although this book is not a "self help" book, I found it truly inspirational. I could relate to so many circumstances in her life. Through her book, Katie ignited a spark inside me to take my own journey towards change for the better. I feel empowered and motivated to find my own happy place!
