How NOT to Business Like Elon Musk with Jesi Whelan What's This Place? Behind the Clicks and Mortar with Miranda Black

    • Fashion & Beauty

Every business creates waste but imagine turning that waste into a NEW business?

That's what Jesi Whelan did with her kids clothing company, Phoenix Pre-Worn.  The clothing that's too torn or stained to be sold gets used in her second business she started with Samantha Hulst from June Bird.
Together they teamed up to create a craft subscription box using textile waste from kids clothing called Canary Kids Club.
Jesi talks about the misconception she had about Big E Entrepreneurism...it's not all Elon Musk and Stock Options!...and how her perception shift made the leap to opening her own business less scary.
We talk about Ghost Energy on thrifted clothing...does it exist?!
What is this place?!
Let's go inside and find out.
Enjoying the podcast? I am fiercely independent, and rely on listeners like you to help me stick around.
