I recently had the honour of crossing paths with David Lee, a man who defied the odds to become a rocket scientist and inventor, author and psychotherapist, entrepreneur, humourist and most importantly, a happy person. And not just any rocket scientist, David supervised the engineering team that designed the rocket for the Lunar Module that saw the first US astronauts land on the moon, among other amazing things.
It means waking up feeling refreshed and eager to get started. It also means taking pleasure in the everyday things that happen all day long, especially the relationships you have with others.
For David True happiness means going to sleep at night pleased and content with the day’s activities. It means waking up feeling refreshed and eager to get started. It also means taking pleasure in the everyday things that happen all day long, especially the relationships you have with others. Author of the Happiness Handbook available FREE as a PDF or audio download the information in his book can change your life especially if you’re stressed out, unhappy, stuck, or feeling hopeless. Full of concrete, well-researched information as well as a touch of humor, The Happiness Handbook will give you the tools and encouragement needed to improve your life, not just for today, but for the rest of your life! On its own the book is a gift in every sense of the word, although beyond this there is so much more to David and his lifes work, all of which has led him to his latest venture and one that I have experienced and benefitted from.
True fortunes is David’s very first venture with no purpose, no redeeming value and no prospect of remuneration. Old enough to have given up saving for his old age, old enough to have more sense but not old enough to stop caring – he’s decided to have some fun! With a soulful commitment to bettering the lives of everyone he meets, both online and off, his purpose is simple; get people thinking deeply, communicating with connection and raising their consciousness to improve their quality of life.
David recently wrote the foreword to my new book and given his credentials, this is indeed an honour for me and one that I must say was most unexpected. I’m still pinching myself! Before writing the foreword, I’d been in touch with David over a period of about 6 to 8 months on a completely unrelated matter. Having first exchanged a couple of emails about his happiness handbook, he suggested I stay in touch and ask him anything which, to be honest, I assumed was simply a figure of speech.
Later, I did have a personal question for him and one that was completely unrelated to my book although I must admit, I assumed there’d not be much chance of a response. To my surprise, he did respond and in some considerable depth, I might add. So our correspondence and a professional relationship grew from there. The point I make is, when he said ask me anything, I didn’t believe him. When he said stay in touch I still didn’t believe him. When he said his only goal these days was to help others where he could, I still didn’t believe him, mainly because I’ve heard people say that before and they haven’t delivered on their promise.
When I say ask me anything, I mean it, when I say, stay in touch I mean it, when I say I’m happy to help and not always for a fee, I mean it. So it was a refreshing change to meet a true kindred spirit and one who has restored my faith in humankind.
I’m telling you about David Lee because it would be incredibly selfish of me to keep him a secret, so I say to you, look him up. Download his Happiness Handbook audio recordings and ask him anything, provided it’s relatable. I did and I still can’t believe the overall outcome. Not because I didn’t have faith in my book but because I must have lost faith in my fellow man along the way, although I’m happy to report he’s restored that now.
I must say this wasn’t a one-way street and we got to where we are now via reciprocity and collaboration which for me highlights the Harold Ramis quote, “Nothing reinforces a professional relationship more than enjoying success with someone.” Which just goes to show at the end of the day, in business and in life, it is and always has been about building relationships. It’s not rocket science, except in my case it is and please indulge me because I’ve been dying to say this …………………. Houston we have lift off!
I encourage you to take a few moments to find out more about David Lee. There’s nothing in it for me other than to know I shared this amazing find and there’s nothing in it for him other than the satisfaction of sharing his incredible wisdom, knowledge, and experience with you. Sign up for his short daily musings, they’re funny, intelligent and they make you think outside the box.

In the meantime here is the foreword to my book and written by David.
We all face challenges. One is to make enough money to support ourselves, perhaps even live well. Another, even more important, is to realize our potential, to become the unique, productive and very special person that is possible for all of us. In this unusual book, Dee Coxon tells us how to do both, and at the same time. Although written specifically for mature women, the principles and methods in this remarkable book apply to everyone. Even men.
I have worked with many, many people to help them become happier and more productive. First through my psychotherapy practice in Beverly Hills, later through my book “The Happiness Handbook” and website “True Fortunes”. During my checkerboard career, I have been instrumental in the growth of at least two companies, and have had my fair share of failures and disasters. It’s been an interesting life, one that enables me to truly appreciate the work that Dee Coxon is doing.
A great deal of the information in this book is a recounting of Dee Coxon’s personal experiences in developing her own business, and in learning the art of success. Perhaps the most useful parts are her accounts of her failures, of her dealings with people who seemed to be able to help but turned out to be of no assistance. In reading this book you will learn a great deal about what not to do. This is a lot faster and a lot less expensive than learning the hard way.
This book gives you a very precise guideline to starting your own business. It starts with the selection of a service or product and then goes on to spell out exactly what you have to do in order to be a success. It includes information on resources, people and places you can go to get help when necessary. It tells you what to expect along the road to success, and the pitfalls to avoid. This book is your blueprint to personal fulfillment and financial success.
