Brianne West on founding Ethique and lessons learned
Brianne has a focus at Ethique on both purpose (having positive impact) as well as profit (being sustainable) - she has given a lot of interviews but none I could find really focus on her early years - her childhood, the influence of her parents, the first ventures that taught her a lot and what then lead to Ethique. Often we only hear the highlights but in this conversation Brianne was willing to share a lot more details of how things developed and lessons learned. I really appreciated her transparency and the model she is providing for other entrepreneurs who seek to make a lasting impact through the business they start.
