“One thing that has always guided me was a quote from Shakespeare, ‘To thine own self be true.” It’s easy to lose sight of that. But if you allow yourself the space to make mistakes and be imperfect and not judge yourself against someone else’s ideas of success, I promise you: you will find your way,” said Busy Philipps.

The 2019 Rule Breakers include best-selling author, actor, talk show host, and activist Busy Philipps; national voting rights leader Stacey Abrams; NCAA gymnastics champion and viral sensation Katelyn Ohashi & legendary UCLA gymnastics coach Valorie Kondos Field; and beauty industry innovator Charlotte Cho, as well as host, Heather McMahan.
