Bryony Gordon is an award-winning journalist, author, and mental health campaigner whose candour in discussing her own struggles have been pivotal in helping tackle the taboos that surround mental health. 

The writer of five Sunday Times Bestselling books, including No Such Thing As Normal, Mad Girl and Glorious Rock Bottom, Bryony has addressed addiction, eating disorders, OCD, and, recently, her journey to sobriety. Through the lens of her own personal experiences, which are sometimes incredible dark and incredibly painful, Bryony’s books offer the reader what feels like a giant hug - reassuring anyone who might be suffering from mental illness themselves the reassurance that you are not alone and as one book title would suggest - there’s no such thing as normal anyway.

Her podcast, Mad World, launched in 2017 with none other than Prince Harry as its first guest and has since featured the likes of Stephen Fry, Nadiya Hussain and Fearne Cotton.

She joins us on this week's podcast to discuss the rules by which she lives, from work to love to money.

The Art Of Living Now

In each episode we speak to brilliant business women at the top of their game about the rules by which they live.

From love, to money, career to home, we want to know how they've designed their lives for success.

The pandemic has hit women’s careers the hardest. This means that one of the greatest challenges we now face in the fight for gender equality is supporting women in the world of work. In tune with this year’s International Women's Day motto #choosetochallenge, the mission-led women's media platform, Her Hustle, has partnered with female-founded jewellery brand, Missoma, and youth mentoring charity, Prince's Trust, to launch a podcast series designed to inspire, lead and move-to-action young women in their careers and beyond.
