Season 3 | Episode 20 - Business, Branding & Entrepreneurship!

We are so excited to share the gems from our chat with serial entrepreneur, Vanessa Newman aka DJ Fiveboi and gender-neutral evening wear designer, Kris Harrington of Kris Harring Apparel Group! As Lamika so accurately put it, we talked about "decolonizing success" so grab a notepad and take away some tangible tips to do just that! Kris and Vanessa talked to us about their introductions to business and self-employment, the importance of trusting a vision and finding time to get it all done. We also get into that familiar debate about whether or not working with friends is a good move. We talk about it all and you definitely want to hear it!
