We here at Inc. give tons of good suggestions about how to make yourself happier. We had “10 Easy Ways to Make Yourself Happy in 2016,” “5 Secrets to a Balanced, Happy Life,” and “5 Daily Habits of Remarkably Happy People,” all within the past few weeks. These articles are all fabulous, but what if we want to make other people happy? How can we do that?
