This is the journey of how one woman went from being a highly-paid attorney, to pursuing an entirely new — and unstable — career of writing. 

Gretchen Rubin (Twitter, LinkedIn) is the author of more than seven books, including biographies of Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy, as well as The Happiness Project, a No. 1 bestseller that has sold more than 3.5 million copies. She’s also the host of the Happier podcast, which has been downloaded more than 70 million times.
