LinkedIn Speaker Series

This LinkedIn Speakers Series guest aligned perfectly with our “wellness” inDay theme that month. After all, what says wellness more than improving your happiness, adopting positive habits, and breaking bad ones?
We’re fortunate to host one of our top LinkedIn Influencers Gretchen Rubin, author of the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, Happier at Home and The Happiness Project. Gretchen currently has over 310,000 followers on LinkedIn, and we’re delighted that she’s joining us live in Mountain View to give us a preview of her forthcoming book, Before and After.
In the book, Gretchen shares a framework that she’s developed about the making and breaking of habits. This framework will help you understand yourself much better, how to motivate yourself -- and other people as well. 
To get a better sense of what to expect from Gretchen’s talk, check out her blog (, where you can also sign up to receive a daily “Moment of Happiness” quote by email, her monthly newsletter, or her monthly Book Club recommendations.
More About Gretchen
A graduate of Yale and Yale Law School, Gretchen started her career in law, and was clerking for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor when she realized she wanted to be a writer. She has written several books, including three novels safely locked in a desk drawer.
Her blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, Happier at Home and The Happiness Project, are accounts of her experiences test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific studies, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. On her popular blog, she reports on her daily adventures in pursuit of happiness.
Response to Gretchen’s practical approach to achieving happiness has been overwhelming. The Happiness Project is more than a book, it’s a movement—a way of life. Psychiatrists suggest it to their patients, professors assign it to their students, book groups read it, families pass it around, and groups have sprung up across the world where people do Happiness Projects together.
She lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.
