It’s so lovely to meet you!

When I couldn’t find any blogs I could relate to, I decided to start Smart Twenties! What began back in 2013 as an outlet for my personal development obsession is now a leading blog and go-to resource for hundreds of thousands of women in their twenties.


My name is Sam Brown, I’m 27 years old and I live with my boyfriend Steve in our home in Brisbane, Australia (we’ve been together since we were 16).

I’m an infj which means I’m a dreamer, I’m creative and I always look for the good in others. It also means I’m a perfectionist and tend to burn out easily, which is what brought me to the world of personal development (along with my love for Oprah, of course).

In July 2015, I graduated from the University of Queensland with a dual degree of Law and Commerce and a Diploma of French. Basically, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and thought I should at least do something smart. I then worked at a big accounting firm for two years before mustering up the courage to go full-time with blogging (you can read all about that journey here.

I now spend the majority of my time helping women like you make the most of their twenties!


Smart Twenties is a personal growth and lifestyle blog designed to help you become your best self. Alongside my online course, podcast and weekly blog posts, I share the ups and downs of navigating my twenties on Instagram and Youtube.

If you’d like to say hello, please do! I’d love to hear from you.

Talk soon,
Sam xx
