creating a better world together


the power of change is in your hands

Think You Can’t Change the World?

Think again! I never set out to run a business. No, I just wanted to change the world. But everybody said that’s not possible, so I set out to change myself instead. Along the way I traveled the world to learn everything I could - from NLP, Ericksonian hypnosis, NVC, expressive arts and storytelling, to immersion in native cultures. I soaked it all in.

I wanted to help others, but mostly I needed to help myself - I was one of the unhappiest people I knew. I had a lot of skills & tools, but no easy way to put the power of change in everyone's hands. That was my wish.

That all changed in a turning point moment, when the Happiness Aim model came pouring through me. In the span of three days, a lifetime of wisdom, knowledge & personal experience distilled into a user-friendly method that anyone could use. I knew it would work because it was everything I had already used on myself. 

You CAN change the world and make it a better place. You just need a way. Let me show you how.

Community BIG Dream Incubator

dream ~ incubate ~ actualize

When we come together in partnership, we create something more together than we can on our own. By activating the power of our collaborative intelligence, we can turn BIG dreams into reality and do our part in creating a better world.

Any intelligent fool can make things more complex. It takes courage & genius to move in the opposite direction.

Annie Hart

At nine months of age, I nearly scared my mother half to death when I attempted to walk off the edge of a stairway. Fortunately she caught me just in time and I’ve been going beyond life’s edges ever since.

I spent my early years reading stories, climbing trees and dreaming of adventures to foreign lands. Later I realized those dreams and have lived in and traveled to wonderful places including Italy, England, Egypt and India.

I honed my novel approach to human transformation in the fields of business, education, healthcare, nonprofit and youth-at-risk. The opportunity to change people’s lives shows me that we truly can create a better world.

I love everything that makes life rich & lovely – the French call it joie de vivre, the Italians la dolce vita. I enjoy drinking fine tea, eating dark chocolate (not the cheap kind), telling stories and speaking Italian.

I still climb trees, love standing on my head, try to break a few needless rules every day and live life as a grand adventure. I’m always ready to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice. I enjoy meeting wonderful people wherever I go.

I live in the natural paradise of Santa Cruz, California.

Our greatness lies not in being able to remake the world, but being in able to remake ourselves.

Annie is a leader. The trends of the fads of the crowds do not phase Annie.
She abides by her own set of rules and is not easily swayed.
Equal to her leadership is her ability to get along with many kinds of people.
She doesn’t judge others on trivialities, she looks for character.

Annie Hart’s crystal-clear glimpse on the world today is simple, tender, human and accurate. It’s what we need to have the courage and strength to go beyond.

My administrative staff felt invigorated and energized by the retreat. Now we know how to keep up the energy & synergy at work.

Your work is so inspiring, effective and compelling. You have an infectious energy that makes people want to follow you wherever you go.

Annie designed a program for my administrative team to develop teamwork. Six months later we work together effortlessly, even around tough issues. Now we function more as a group than as a collection of individuals.

I see a huge difference in how I live at home and at work.

I’ve always believed that anything you want to do, you will do.
