Spam is not bliss, so don't worry about that happening here. We just need permission to stay in touch with you.

We are building a unique family of portfolio clients at Bliss Champions. It is comprised of individuals that we identified through our Incubators and Retreats that we feel have the attributes necessary to win at their BLISS.

Our mission is to help bring secret and unrealized ambitions to life. We do this by helping people get clear on their next blissful move, be inspired and encouraged to commit to their unrealized ambition (or play bigger at it), and provide the support needed to champion their dreams.


If we see an opportunity to help you better MONETIZE YOUR BLISS, that is when we make an additional investment of capital.

WE ARE ATTRIBUTE INVESTORS, which means we invest in people with specific attributes, not business ideas. The only way to be considered for an investment is to participate in one of our Incubators or Retreats.

We might be the only personal development company in the world that IS investing large sums of money (from $10,000 – $400,000) into its members’ ambitions. We are looking for extraordinary talent to invest in and we are not playing small.


We are specifically on the lookout for people who have secret or unrealized ambitions that need help identifying ways to better monetize their Bliss (business, ambitions, dreams, etc.). We are not Angel Investors or Venture Capitalists looking for the next big Unicorn. In fact, fancy business plans and big ideas are not a consideration in our investment decisions.


We created our first fund, BLISS INVESTMENT FUND I, in Q4-2017 with $750,000 of investment capital. After just our first two retreats, we invested all of that capital in six participants. In Q4 of 2018, we created our second fund, BLISS INVESTMENT FUND II, with $1,100,000 of investment capital it acquired FUND I and invested an additional $250,000 in six of our 2019 participants. Over 10% of our participants have received investment capital to date.


We are currently raising BLISS INVESTMENT FUND III with the goal of doubling our fund size to $2,000,000.
