We had the good fortune of connecting with Jack Eustace and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jack, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
For me this started before the pandemic, and the idea was only solidified more during it… personal life will always be the most important. Careers are great if you love what you do, and if they provide financial stability to do things outside of work that you want to do- but if you don’t ever give yourself time to do them you might as well not work at all.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think I’m most proud of being able to stay adaptable and flexible. I never knew that I would be able to create a career doing things that I loved, even though I did know I only wanted to do what I loved. So I consider myself lucky that people hire me to help them create.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Start the day at Chaumont in Beverly Hills, for morning croissant (sometimes Laduree for the rose croissant.) Then head to Malibu Creek State Park for an easy and beautiful hike, followed by lunch in Malibu at Neptunes Net (cheesy but always fun.) Dinner at Gigi’s on Sycamore. I also love taking people from out of town to Grand Central Market, great food and even better people watching. Shopping- Just One Eye, for clothes, Pop Up Home, for furniture/home goods (and theyre right next to each other so that makes it easy.) I love a flea market, Fairfax/Melrose is great. Dinners- Badmaash on Fairfax, Il Piccolino on Robertson, Silverlake Ramen on Sunset. Hikes- Wisdom Tree & Eaton Canyon.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shout out to all the women who have helped me along the way, I have been lucky to be raised and surrounded by strong women (not that I didn’t have amazing men in my life) And I continue to work with truly amazing women, I consider myself so lucky to have known them, to of learned from them, and to call them friends.
