As a stylist who explores what makes women feel beautiful, entrepreneur and Instagram favorite @HilaryRushford brings her witty, winsome, and wise voice to honest conversations on how to have an extraordinary life (without being exhausted): More joy and less overwhelm in your style, business, and life. You’re welcome (wink), in advance.
Ever see someone at a fab resort you cannot afford? I love a good travel daydream, and heck a good resort! But often I find myself wistful for one day, instead of empowering and inspired for what I can make happen with my budget and family as they are today.
In a culture permeated with so much productivity guilt, hustle narrative, so many options, ideas, and opportunities…
My constant undercurrent is to feel guilty that I’m perhaps not working hard enough.
I loathe that this is true! Because I know it’s zero percent helpful, and only harmful.
And on paper I know the facts: I’ve built a successful business and been running it for 11 years. I’m the only boss I’m accountable to, so clearl...
I was jealous of her, before I saw how our stories played out. I imagine you’ve had the same happen? But maybe forget when the next instance of jealousy arises subtly or swiftly?

In our home we’ve been making a lot of big decisions lately.

How can you welcome more people into your life, without excluding, yet also without compromising or editing your beliefs and experiences?
Today’s listener Q is a great one whether an entrepreneur speaking to your audience on Instagram, or simply wanting to connect with more people in your personal life.
A more personal part 2, as I felt compelled to be more vulnerable around a topic that, along with many of my colleagues, feels so rife with criticism and judgement.
Mentioned in this episode:
A personal chat for any stage or feelings on being or having a mother. A few days after Mother's Day and with some articles that came across my IG feed as of late, I’ve been pondering:
How we respond, trigger, idolize, yearn for and celebrate this complex topic that applies to every single one of us.

What’s your big question in life? The one you keep seeking to answer, coming at from different angles. The one that shows you what you’re really longing for, or envision as the key to happiness.
Your favorite books just might be a clue. Here are mine, or at least those mentioned in today’s episode:
A self-help author recently made some problematic posts, and my thoughts on the controversy was the most requested topic this week.
In full disclosure: in this episode I neither mention her name, nor analyze her posts.
This conversation isn’t about her as I’m far less interested in the missteps of individuals than the bigger picture of how we want to act and react ourselves in and around these situations.
What does it look like to ...
Is being so hard on yourself exhausting? Why do we feel crazy all the time!?
Good news. There’s some practical explanations for why some of us struggle extra with this question of when we have accomplished enough.
Whatever your occupation, this will give you insight and empathy, whether for yourself or others. Plus freedom, whether that’s gratitude or more grace for your own story.
I’m opening up my personal journal to read you my own questions on enoughness in my business and my body/beauty.
Listen in to hear the breakthrough that comes when we truly explore where our fears are coming from, the lies we’re believing, and the truth that would actually bring us more peace and joy.
Then use these 10 Q’s for your own questions:
Am I doing enough?
What will be enough?
At what point can I rest without feeling guilty I should be doing more?
I keep noticing this word in your questions, or the subtext beneath them.
I feel it too. I ask it too. I chase it too.
When we haven’t found the answer, it’s because the question is complex.
Which means exploring multiple angles, peeling back layers, going deeper.
Today launches a 3-week series on enoughness.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.
