27 Quotes From Julien Smith on Life, People, and Happiness

These quotes are from Julien Smith’s blog 100 Tips About Life, People, and Happiness.  I loved them instantly and wanted to put something together to spread them to as many people as I could.

I’ve been following Julien for a while now.  I read his blog (inoveryourhead.net) regularly, he looks at the world differently and isn’t afraid to tell you want he really thinks.  That’s why I like him.  He co-wrote Trust Agents, the original bible on social media and more recently wrote one of my favorite books, The Flinch (free e-book).
