Smarter Happier is all about developing a better work-life balance. It says it right in the header, working smarter for a happier life! We’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what this balance should look like and have been wrestling with the tough decisions related to the hours we work and what we do as a family.

Nigel Marsh is an author, speaker, husband and father who has spoken powerfully on the topic of the work-life balance, too. You may even have heard his often-quoted: “You’re slogging away in a job you don’t enjoy to buy things you don’t need to impress people you don’t like.”

Marsh also spoke at TEDx Sydney in 2010 about the work-life balance and the video of his talk has been viewed more than 2 million times! It’s insightful, funny and really on point. The story about his afternoon spent with his son really hit home for me – I totally know the feeling.
