DEAN STREET SOCIETY AND @HILARYRUSHFORD INVITE YOU TO ...
FINISH THIS SENTENCE:
I wish …
... for a full night of sleep ... I had less anxiety ... there were more hours in a day ... my business made more money ... I could travel more (at all!)... I was a better boss ... I could slow down ... I was happier ...
I KNOW. I’VE BEEN THERE
Yes, you need a financially profitable business for it to survive. But you also need to be mentally healthy, highly self-aware, with deep emotional wellness as a CEO and boss ... for YOU to be able to survive the first or next 5 years.
I have no TED-style talk for you about "The day I woke up and everything was different." No car crash, no divorce -- my personal and emotional transformation is less dramatic.
But it’s real. And there are steps I’ve taken to start seeing, feeling, experiencing lasting change. For the better.
After a financial breakhough in 2015, I took a 4-month sabbatical last summer. Yes, it was dreamy. I gave myself space, time, rest. However, I realized that everywhere I traveled ... I took my anxieties, bad habits, hurtful stories, and negative beliefs with me. They followed me all over the countryside of Europe.
So while there was indeed joy, adventure, beauty, and play … there was another layer of healing and hope that I desired to find. It would take digging more deeply.
And so I read, watched, listened to everything I could get my hands on. It was self-therapy in the South of France. And while my fairy godmother did not come to transform me in a few weeks, I did start to see the cracks of light.
I started to feel more healing, more hope, more elegant and excellent. And while there I poured what I’d learned into a series of videos that are my gift to you today.
The Elegant Excellence Experience
The kind of time everyone can find, but is often brushed aside with a dismissive: “Well, it’s not like I can really accomplish much in 10 minutes.”
Look, there’s not one secret to success in business or life. But waiting for the entirely-free weekend is the tempting trap of perfection that’s holding you back, love. It never comes.
I found there are a few core keys to living a life of more joy and less overwhelm as a creative entrepreneur — a business with financial breathing room, and you as a leader who shows up calm and confident (more days than not).
This is what these 10 days are really about. I’m brimming to share the decepively easy ideas I learned while on sabbatical. They’re simple to fold into your life right now. I've been applying them ever since, myself.
All you need to do is stop waiting, and start choosing. Say 'yes!'
Take the same time and attention you give to your inbox or social media to your mind — the most beautifully powerful resource you have.
What Hilary teaches is such a beautiful reminder that we started our businesses for more freedom. This training helps those who have lost sight of that and need to rediscover that desire again.

My business is projected to triple its revenue over last year. My husband quit to start working with me. I'm going on a European retreat and scaling back this year. PIus I finally hired fulfillment to do my dirty work while I'm taking a vacation. #winning

Hilary’s training is a game changer! By focusing on what would give me the biggest return. I now work about 2 hours a day... instead of 6 hours after my child goes to sleep. I started making mini- trainings for my fellow coaches, and I got 3 new clients after cutting my hours! That’s amazing!
