    8 | Christina Markessinis on her fashion school journey and new business owner faux pas'

    Welcome back listeners!

    On today's episode Yasmine is joined by a special guest, business owner and content creator as well as her dear friend and fellow fashion school graduate, Christina Markessinis. This week the girls recap on their fashion school experience, the good, the bad and the expensive of it all. They discuss their takeaways from their college career and how it brought them to where they are in their professional life today.

    Christina also shares with Yasmine how the idea came about to become a business owner in apparel. She touches on what it’s really like to have your own brand and shuts down glamourized misconceptions about being your own boss. We also of course get to hear about how SohoNude was born and what we can expect to see in the near future.

    7 | Debbie Poh on her journey to self employment Faux Pas

    7 | Debbie Poh on her journey to self employment Faux Pas

    Welcome back listeners! On today's solo episode Bernie is interviewing our lovely guest Debbie Poh. Debbie is a Vancouver-based conscious fashion content creator and writer striving for a more sustainable and intentional lifestyle. She recently quit her corporate finance job in order to pursue a creative career— with the happy side effect of now having more time to spend on self-care, her dog, hiking, and writing. In this episode Debbie opens up to Bernie about important values that she lost while working corporate, which she then regained after becoming self employed. She also touched on the importance of knowing your values in your work and charging brands accordingly, which honestly at the beginning is a STRUGGLE.  



    As you are all already familiar, Bernie and Debbie are in the same/similar line of work, so naturally many other important topics where discussed. The girls dove right in with the importance of sharing vs gatekeeping in the social media space, having multiple streams of income, the stigma around content creation (influencers), and the reality of false influencing (yes it's a thing). They also talked about incorporating your personal passions in your work and how that can be beneficial to your content and brand image as a whole. Bernie also took the opportunity to pick Debbie's brain about topics such as;  being a visible minority in this field of work and tokenism which as we know there is A LOT to unpack there. 



     Finally,  this episode ended with an optimistic tone as the girls reflected on the positive changes that are taking place in the social media industry. We hope you enjoyed this episode as much as all the others, this far. If you liked what you heard and like what you've been hearing, leave Bernie and Yasmine a cute little rating below. Also, let them know what your favorite part of this episode was in the comments as well as who you would like the girls to interview next ;)
