Efforts to grow as an individual or a company can be painstaking and arduous if done alone and without external input. This is because one may be blind to one’s gaps and areas for improvement. The help, therefore, of coaches and self-growth experts is very much needed, and in the area of personal growth and organizational wellness, no one could be more fitting to have as a source of guidance than Alice Inoue.
Alice, a life expert and founder of Happiness U., has helped both companies and individuals develop positive mindsets in order to live more inspired in both their personal and professional lives.
Born in San Francisco, she was raised in Taiwan from the age of eight and entered the University of California as a pre-med student. After earning a degree in Biology, she opted to travel to Japan to teach English instead of pursuing medical school. Already fluent in English and Mandarin, she added Japanese to her linguistic skills.
In an unprecedented move, Alice then jumped into the world of media, first debuting as a TV show host and then spending a few years as a bilingual news anchor and host of her own weekly Japanese TV shows. At the same time, Alice served as a spokesperson for a multitude of companies.
Drawing inspiration from her long-standing interest in spiritually, Alice once again made a dramatic shift to become an ordained minister. Within months, she began rigorous self-study, as well as intensive training with respected masters of feng shui and astrology.
And now, Alice has established herself as a huge name in the industry, inspiring positivity, mindfulness, and purpose in individuals and institutions. As an award-winning author of eight books on self-growth and happiness, Alice shares insights and life wisdom that help both companies and individuals worldwide reach new heights of awareness. Her presentations, keynotes, training, and workshops have been widely recognized for their upbeat, inspiring, dynamic, and insightful nature.
In 2013, Alice established Happiness U, an organization in Honolulu that is passionate about guiding people and companies toward growth and empowerment. She serves as the corporate presenter, as well as the primary teacher, covering topics about the advancement of mind, body, and spirit.
Happiness U has helped over one hundred fifty companies, and over ten thousand people transform into a better version of themselves. As a one-of-a-kind educational establishment, it offers both corporate programs as well as in-house and online classes and events. It is composed of inspired facilitators who lead dozens of classes each month that focuses on personal growth, self-development, and finding meaning in life.
Alice, as the founder and Chief Happiness Officer of Happiness U, has consistently demonstrated success in inspiring personal empowerment through self-exploration. She has helped numerous people and organizations actualize their potential and address the gaps in the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of their lives.
Her wide range of knowledge has led her to speak and train on virtually any topic, including decluttering, Feng shui, environmental dynamics, goal setting, self-care, avoiding distractions, productivity, relationship-building, and much more.
Alice’s guidance in the optimization of people’s potential has never been more needed than during this trying pandemic-laden time. And she wants to make it known that, as the world swirls in uncertainty, she is ready to make growth a guarantee for others.
