Shitty Idea Time: a celebration of bold business experiments

58 EpisodesProduced by Tess BallWebsite

I help small business owners access their creativity, stop censoring their own ideas and experiment like a boss. Through interviews with business experts and entrepreneurs on unconventional journeys, we prove that there's no such thing as a bad idea.


Launching her sustainable fashion line, with Nazia Siddiqui

Nazia Siddiqui has a career in finance but a passion for fashion design so she founded Transcend, a Seattle-based women’s fashion brand focused on art and sustainability. With Transcend, she combines hand-embroidered textiles from South Asia with timeless silhouettes to bring unique, thoughtful and beautiful pieces that women want to wear again and again. In the future, she hopes to scale her business by working with a broad number of artisan groups and communities across the globe.


In this episode, she introduces her startup and explains why she decided to focus on hand embroidery and watercolor prints. She also shares her thoughts on sustainability and ethics in relation to her business.
