I’m Kelly Rudyk.
Family and relationships are the most important things in my world. My wife and I have nurtured our two children and grown a very close-knit family built on trust and mutual support.
Every day I am grateful to see how the many tools we’ve given our children help them to grow and succeed.
I am a University of Alberta graduate—a major in Economics and a Local Government Certificate inspired my career at Strathcona County, to which I dedicated nearly 30 years. As Director of Corporate Planning, I received a Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) Award for the implementation of Priority Based Budgeting, a tool I now use as an independent consultant to help improve the lives of families and the operations of organizations and communities.
But my life wasn’t always like it is today. I have overcome many obstacles and gained great strength in doing so.
As one of four children raised by a single mother on the run from an emotionally and physically abusive husband, my childhood was one of constant upheaval and difficulty. When my mother finally remarried, she did so for security, and the torment of another abusive relationship degraded any hope for a normal life. I have since lost her to cancer, and a sister to suicide.
I believe I am so exceptionally committed to my family’s success because I watched my mother’s constant struggle to find happiness. She fought so hard for it her entire life.
She gave so much love and fought so hard for me and for my siblings, and for that, I fight for and cherish happiness every day.
Why I created the Happiness Blueprint.
The Happiness Blueprint comes from an enormous desire to share the passion I have for strong families.
I know firsthand what an intentional focus to bring joy into our lives can do for both immediate and long-term happiness. Too often we think it is in the end, when we reach our goals, that we will find happiness. We work long and hard to finally achieve it, when in fact, intentionally finding joy in all we do means finding happiness now.
I invite you to embark with me on the Happiness Blueprint, a journey to uncovering your greatest power as an individual and as a family. I will walk beside you as your coach, through all the ups and downs, because I know what struggle is and what it takes to surpass it. I sincerely want to share this process with you, because it is my life’s mission to add as much value as I can in as many ways as I can.
The Happiness Blueprint will help you to experience life on the other side of your obstacles and fears. As your coach I will help you to climb over them, just as I have, to reach the life that you and your family deserve. You can be your best self, and you can live a genuine and authentic life fueled by continuous improvement and connection—and above all, happiness.
