Little Happier: This Mother Knew Exactly What Career Advice to Give

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Rubin is HAPPIER, and she wants you to be happier too. The #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before gets more personal than ever as she brings her practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to this lively, thought-provoking podcast. Gretchen’s cohost and guinea pig is her younger sister, Elizabeth Craft, a TV writer and producer living in Los Angeles, who (lovingly) refers to Gretchen as her happiness bully. Part of the Cadence13 Network.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

I’m often wracked by indecision when I’m asked to give advice or take action. I love this example of a mother who knew exactly what career advice to give her daughter.
