About Beth Bongar: The Happiest Workshop Leader in the World

Welcome! I’m Beth Bongar

I’m here to share the gifts i have learned on how to be happy and stay relaxed,  no matter what happens or how  you feel . 

Even if….

If…I don’t get the job, if  he or she doesn’t loves me,  if my health doesn’t  gets better , i don’t ; loose 10 Ibs (insert your own if here)…


I know because I spent much of life doing just that –  thinking about Happiness as Conditional

I wanted to use the things I learned at California Institute Of the Arts in the drama Dept. and In India with Dr, Madan Kataria . heir own brilliant light. Living a grateful , Relaxed Happy fearless life. Connecting with anyone, – these are skills that benefit all of us.

So for the last five years, I’ve been doing just that. 

I teach CEOs, private clients, online students, and huge companies how to connect – through video, sales-making pitches, engaging presentations, and small talk conversations people actually enjoy.

While much of my work helps people  Regain their inner Joy , at the heart of it, I help people feel their greatness.

 I help them unearth the thing they’ve always wanted to do and then find the courage to actually start. I crystalize why they want it, who they are meant to serve and how to articulate it easily.  With that, they light up and the world takes notice.

When I’m not helping people tell their stories, I’m heading to a spin class. or swimming or walking with my 2 doggies. .

Even a large corporate convention audience manages to stand up, stretch, smile and breath under her direction; becomes willing to make contact with people at their side. Beth Bongar exudes happiness, which is contageous. A talented speaker who knows how to share the gift of happiness with the world, Beth is one of the true pioneers spreading her original recipe of Laughter and Happiness.
