“All it takes is a little bit of hustle, and a whole lot of heart!”                  – Melissa Rush, Host of the Hustle & Heart Podcast

Why Hustle & Heart?

As long as I can remember, women have inspired me throughout my life. Whether it was my loving and devoted Mom, my adventurous and brave Aunt, to some of my favorite teachers or co-workers I’ve had the pleasure of knowing…women have been my mentors, my inspiration. I guess I have always lived my life with “a little bit of hustle and a whole lot of heart.” From being a scrappy little kid at sleep-away summer camp in the Berkshires, to taking my first Greyhound bus to New York City at age 18 to dance all night at The Limelight (sorry Mom & Dad! LOL) … I have worked hard to achieve the things I wanted in life… Good, Bad or a little too Wild. I took the risk. I made it happen. I remember fighting to get an internship at the now-defunct Boston Phoenix to getting into the college of my dreams (Georgetown…Let’s go Hoyas!), to picking up my life and moving overseas to Europe (Amsterdam!)  in search of adventure, to finally finding my soulmate in my husband (I was a late bloomer!), to raising our two beautiful, spirited & gorgeous children. I have hustled and given it my all… heart and soul.
