This is a very special episode as today we hear from Marisa Hordern, aka the founder of our favourite jewellery brand and our partner for this series - Missoma.

After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in Modern history, Marisa started her career in advertising with the luxury goods company Richemont. But on the side, she was making jewellery - a longtime love of hers - which she’d sell at boutiques all around the UK under the then-unknown brand name Missoma. Eventually, she took a leap of faith and quit her full-time job to focus solely on growing the company.

While the brand is now worn by friends and celebrities alike - Meghan Markle, Cindy Crawford, and Margot Robbie have all been spotted dripping in Missoma jewels - it took Marisa years to find the company’s sweet spot and carve out its niche as the go-to purveyor of demi-fine jewellery. As they say - it takes years and years to become an overnight success.

In this episode, Marisa shares her rules around work, love and finance, and tells us why her 30s were so much better than her 20s.

The Art Of Living Now

This podcast has been created in partnership with our favourite jewellery brand, Missoma and a brilliant initiative started by the Prince's Trust, Women Supporting Women.

Do you find yourself wondering how the people you admire have designed their lives? How they approach not just their careers but love, money, their home?

The Art of living now is a new podcast exploring just that. Throughout this in-depth interview series, Her Hustle co-founder, Emma-Louise Boynton, is joined by leading women at the top of their game to discuss the rules by which they live. 

Do they love intensely or stay clear from romance in fear of a broken heart? Do they have a career plan or do they relish the unknown? Do they save or do they splurge? Do they work as hard as they can, or do they slow down to smell the roses? These are some of the questions the show will be delving into as we seek to understand the guiding principles that structure how our favourite women live.
