    In conversation with Laura May, Nagnata

    Welcome back to the podcast. I am so excited to share this episode with you. I left this interview feeling so incredibly inspired and I learned so much about business and just reminded about what makes a good business and what makes a business thrive through interviewing Laura May of Nagnata, a fashion lifestyle brand. Laura and her team won a sustainability award, designer award and so much more. 
    Laura’s story is so incredible, she has so much wisdom. It is such an amazing example of what happens when a brand has a passionate founder, a really core, clear brand value, brand purpose that they ooze throughout everything that they do. Laura shares some insights into legal battle fighting for her designs and her uniqueness, also what it takes to hire a great team, and innovating in a sustainable way in the fashion industry now. There’s so much to learn from Laura’s story.

    It is a pretty wild time on planet earth right now and in running a business, being a freelancer, a creative, and a solo entrepreneur.

I've had conversations with my existing clients about lots of changes that are happening.

    There are also ways to stay calm, see opportunities and to be of service to the world - which are what we really need right now. Let me share with you some tips that I'm using that I've learned along the way of how to stay calm and focused in this chaotic time and try to reduce some of that fear that may be rising in you.
