Raquel Bouris - Who Is Elijah
This episode was produced in partnership with Who Is Elijah.
Raquel Bouris is the founder of Who Is Elijah, a beautiful fragrance brand that absolutely took off during the pandemic. She was inspired to create a perfume after a trip to Coachella, and what started as a little side project to a scent just for her, has now taken on a life of its own and grown into a multimillion-dollar brand.
In this ep, you’ll learn:
How she generated traction early on and secured DJs as a retailer with a slick marketing deck
Her ambitions to scale into the US, and what Sephora US asked her to do before they ranged her brand
In 2021, why her accountant told her she’d have to radically cut costs or she wouldn’t have a business in a few months
Why she hired two of her best mates into the business, and what it was like to fire them
How she’s built confidence in her own skills along the way

Easily one of my favourite podcasts!
This podcast is easily one of my favourites!
These girls, Caitlin and Anna, are smart, relatable and insightful. Their down to earth, genuine personalities mean they get all the juicy details out of their guests in a relaxed and honest way. It’s obvious they spend a lot of time ensuring they have the right guests (and ask the right questions!) to continually deliver episodes that offer real stories, relatable experiences and insights that listeners can put into practice. And as these two women are so successful themselves - you know that their advice is incredibly valuable.
A must-listen if you’re interested in starting up your own business, already have your own business, or if you’re just interested in building your career and knowledge. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!
