Chances are, you’ve heard of Grace Harry. You might have seen her sunny home with Questlove featured in PEOPLE. In her thirty years as a music industry executive at Island Def Jam and Jive Records, she’s guided the careers of music icons Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Mariah Carey.
Deeply driven by a sense of social responsibility, Harry, 50, works as a “joy strategist,” helping everyday people and artists like Jay-Z and Lauryn Hill connect their emotional dots. “I have a lot of friends that are healers, therapists, and life coaches, and I realized, that’s not what I want to do — I want to create a strategy around people finding joy and having joy be their North Star,” says Harry.

Whether you’re a business executive, a new mother, or someone in a life transition, the pursuit of joy, a vital birthright, is something we all have in common. But capturing it is often easier said than done.
