About Claire

Claire Booth was a successful but stressed-out market research entrepreneur and executive suffering from what she calls “achiever fever”— constant striving coupled with chronic feelings of inadequacy. Sick and tired of feeling miserable, self-help skeptic Booth decides to try anything that might bring relief, from mindfulness to martial arts, from spending ten days in silence to “smiling” at her spleen. At first, Booth is fearful that slowing down and softening up will mean losing her professional edge. Instead, she discovers a more joyful and purposeful life, one that also turns out to be good for business.

Claire Booth is an entrepreneur, author, and speaker. She is the founder and CEO of market research firm Lux Insights, with two decades of experience serving some of the world’s most recognized brands.
