Probably the best way to describe the author of this book is to say that he is “an average, everyday kind of guy”. He does not hold any advanced degrees or grand spiritual credentials. Randy Petersen was quietly pulled from a background in business into his current spiritual avocation. His business background is in retail general management and he is the co-founder of Alta Labs, a company that produces and markets innovative natural remedies. Their flagship product "Motioneaze" is an all natural motion sickness remedy that can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Bass Pro Shops and other fine retailers.
Today we are talking with Randy Petersen, the author of the new book "The Happiness Principle". Tell us a little about your background. Are you an author by profession?
I come from a business background. I won't bore you with my résumé here but most of my experience is in corporate retail general management. I am not an author by profession. This is a relatively new line of work for me.
It's obvious that you wrote The Happiness Principle in order to share an incredibly interesting personal experience, but did you have other reasons for wanting to write the book?
My reasons for writing the book surpass the mere desire to entertain with a remarkable story. First of all, I felt a real inspiration to write the book; but I also felt a great personal need to share what was learned from these experiences with others. So aside from an entertaining and fascinating read, the concepts found in the book can literally change your life.
What would you do if you were approached by an Angel? What would you say? Which questions would you ask? This is the true story of a little angel named Lilly Ann, who made her presence known during a spiritual blessing. She carried with her the most powerful teaching in existence. One principle that when applied guarantees real and lasting personal peace, happiness and abundance.
