The Best You Project was started by Scott back in 2013 as a way to share useful tips that he learned on how to live a happier life and find success. As the years went past and the following grew Scott decided to add some other authors and coaches to the team and asked experienced coach and business woman Hazel to join the team in 2016. This shortly followed with Scott’s close friend Julie who joined in January 2017.

We want to lead and inspire people but most importantly we want to help people live happier lives. We want to help people feel happier about themselves, make the most of what they have and set themselves up to build a life they love, not just tolerate. That is the whole reason we do this, to get people focusing on the good things that are all around them instead of the bad. That is a choice, though many don’t realise yet.

Everyone has their troubles and challenges in life, some more than others. A lot of the time though people dwell on their problems and negativity rather than appreciating all the good things they have and maintaining a positive outlook. Most of our blogs are just basic tips on how to appreciate what you have, make you feel happier about yourself, and set yourself up for success.

If this doesn’t sound like anything of interest to you then you must be doing well for yourself and be well on top of your insecurities … we congratulate you on that and thank you for stopping by. For everyone else, thank you very much for taking the time to visit and we hope you find something useful at the Best You Project. If anyone has any questions or constructive feedback we’d love to hear it. 

The BYP Team

Scott J

Scott is the Founder of the Best You Project and also a freelance writer, singer and coach. He started the BYP in 2013 to share valuable life lesson he had learned through years of research and coaching others. As the BYP grew and he learned more ways to help others so he decided to write a book on the subject, which will be published hopefully later this year.

Hazel H

It’s been a few years now since Hazel started her journey on the road to true happiness. Hazel is all about personal development that involves action, not just reading words, nor hoping or believing that good will just automatically happen. She is all about taking action which creates positive change in my life. We can all read a million words full of inspirational advice, but if we don’t act we don’t get.

Julie B

Julie is our latest contributor to the Best You Project. She joined this team because it embodies the real-life, run-of-the mill everyday struggles that we can all relate to in some way and how with some support we are all capable of change. The biggest realisation Julie had was that there were many things in life that she couldn’t control and had to accept that in the end she could only be responsible for her own thoughts and actions.

  13. I absolutely love what your blog is about! My mom raised me with a ‘lessons learned through experience and shared experience’ mentality. I try to take as many positive lessons out of things out of life and learn from the experience of others as much as possible because I don’t believe that one can learn (or should learn) everything through first-hand experience. Happiness true starts with contentment. Oh, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
