Who IsHappy Melly?an introductionversion 1
In November 2012, three guysgot together because they shared           a purpose.
We want to help peoplebecome happy workers, and     live better lives.
They were inspired by thefamous photo of Melly Shumwho hates her job.               http://www.flickr.com/photos/bertwerk/...
They realized only a happybusiness can help otherpeople be happy.
And so they named me   Happy Melly
My business is bringing great ideas to knowledge workers     and improve their lives.
In my day-to-day activities  this goal can take many      practical forms.
I can work with writers and designers to       produce inspiring content.
I can help to bring great games and courseware          to trainers and facilitators.
I can manage licensing programs and    the central storage of assets.
I can create apps, videos and websites        around popular topics.
I can help publish books and podcasts     and coordinate translations.
I can assist in the manufacturing and   distribution of cards and games.
I can support conferences, workshops,     seminars, and other events.
And I seek, collect, and share stories of happier people.
All these activities requirethat I am a business with     creative workers.
But I don’t want to bejust another traditionalhierarchical organization.
Instead, I am a networkof free creative people, just        like in a democracy.
Anyone who has the mind of an entrepreneur can join my      business, as a startup.
It’s just a matter oflaunching a legal entity and          offering a service.
Important decisionsconcerning the legal entities    are made in Gatherings.
Anyone with a creative    mind can also join mybusiness, as a stakeholder.
It’s just a matter of registering,        joining the network, and                getting involved.
The stakeholders vote on     who should be their        representatives.
Decisions for stakeholders aremade by the representatives in                     Huddles.
The CEO is appointed by,and represents, both legalentities and stakeholders.
The CEO may need helpfrom a Board, including a       CFO and a CMO.
The Board decides which services are central and offered to the business.
And all this managementstuff is properly documented      in a Constitution.
?Including a descriptionof the brands we use for      our products.
I am Happy Melly, andyou should see me as an      experiment.
I am an experimental organization,implemented as a business network.
Experiments enable learning, and wemust learn how to achieve happiness.
We should apply ideas for betterorganizations to our own business first.
By practicing what we preach we  can improve what we teach.
And we can only help others be happy  if we are happy ourselves first.
I am Happy Melly.I’m a different kind of business.
