Show Notes


This week, Eric is joined by Brittany Berger, the founder of WorkBrighter.co, a digital media company and community that helps disabled, chronically-ill, mentally-ill, and neurodivergent creatives better balance between work, play, and rest, so they can burnout less.

She started Work Brighter after 5 years working at a high-stress startup that prioritized hustle, growth, and scaling over health.  As a “multiply-disabled” human, her body eventually had enough of the constant burnout cycle.  Now that Brittany has escaped hustle culture, she spends her time helping others like her to find balance for themselves, advocating for disability justice, and dancing – always dancing!
