hey there


Many of us have goals and dreams that we’re passionate about pursuing (plus a lot of housework that needs to get done). So we put our heads down, create a to-do list, and try to make those goals happen.

But at what point does trying to be productive leave you on a hamster wheel of never-ending work that sacrifices your mental health and relationships?

While you may have started with drive and passion, the external pressure of trying to achieve it all can quickly turn into a chronic and unsustainable cycle of doing more – which can lead you to resent the work you once loved.

So how can you lead a peacefully productive life that leaves room for rest, relationships, and what matters most?

That’s what this episode of the SHE podcast explores! I talk to Jess Massey, the founder of Hustle Sanely, about how we can pursue productivity while still prioritizing our health and relationships.

Meet Jess Massey

If you’re not familiar with Jess, you should be! I love that she focuses on how to be productive, but still makes room for rest, relationships, and all the things that matter most. She has such a healthy approach toward productivity that I think all women need to hear!

Jess is the host of The Hustle Sanely Podcast, a planner creator, and the founder of the community-centered productivity brand Hustle Sanely. She teaches ambitious women how to release overwhelm and prioritize their mental health & relationships as they pursue their goals. Her approach is far from hustle culture – and I’m so excited for you to learn more from her in this episode!
