Support The Happier Hour
The Happier Hour is on Patreon!
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a platform that allows you to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. In short, the creator is supported by the generosity of her or his patrons, just like the olden days! Except, instead of paying a lot of money, you have the option to donate the equivalent of a cup of coffee every month. There are several tiers based on how much the patrons are able to give and each tier comes with rewards so to speak. So, for example, this could be bonus content, monthly Q&A calls… there aren’t really any rules!
Season One of The Happier Hour was 100% ad free. But that doesn’t mean it was free to make! And after the episodes on money it became clear that The Happier Hour needs your help to keep going and growing. Those costs include the audio recording at the live events, podcast equipment, my editor, the website domain hosting, which have been coming out of pocket. While I believe deeply in the mission of The Happier Hour, I also believe it takes a village to bring creative and innovative endeavors into the world. And more importantly, I want you, the listener, to have the opportunity to be part of the change if you so choose!
