Mixing It Up With Model and Influencer Eric Rutherford
These days, it seems like everyone is working a gazillion jobs, pursuing infinite passions, and traveling all over the world. Over the coming days, we will be introducing you to a handful of the East End’s top talents whose success is generated by their magical ability to mix it all up. Meet Eric Rutherford!
Various Hustles: “I’m wearing many hats for many jobs, which is just how I like it and keeps life interesting. My ’job’ currently consists of modeling, shooting content for a new show I developed in London, writing chapters for a book idea, and my ’Tuesday Talks,’ which I started because I wanted to use my platform to bring more positivity into the conversation, whether around sobriety, mental illness, or just being your best self.“
How I Mix It Up: “Every day is a new mix! Whether I’m shooting content with people who inspire me, rewriting a chapter after getting fresh notes, or pitching a collaboration idea to one of the brands I love to partner with on projects.”
Travel Philosophy: “I believe everyone should travel as much as they possibly can. This could be exploring a nearby neighborhood or state that you might not know a lot about or booking a ticket to a country whose culture fascinates you.”
Growth Strategy: “Every day, I write in a journal about everything that is happening in my life, ranging from my successes and failures, daily reflections and challenges, hopes and desires, and a gratitude list, to keep it all in perspective. Plus, I always seem to be pushing, nudging, or cajoling myself to do more, be more, or love more.”
