Courageous & Creative

Updated: Jan 12, 2022

LiveableMe now has a podcast. Yeah! When I originally set out to launch the podcast, I wasn't really sure where I was going with it. The one thing I did know was that I wanted to create a platform where people who care about sustainability and fair trade, within the fashion industry, could be heard. I desired beautiful, raw and unique stories to present themselves, organically. I hoped for creative artists that would be willing to share their stories and through them, for the marginalized world to be heard, Thankfully, that is what is beginning to happen.

This week, we launched our very first episode. Our guest, Mrs. Emily Harris, of Mrs.Emily, was simply a delight to speak to. Her humbleness contagious, her perception of life encouraging and her business ethics - simply inspiring. I couldn't be more pleased to have had her as our first guest.

Emily launched her business 12 years ago. She stepped out of, what most of us would call 'traditional fashion', and pivoted into what can only be described as slow and small, in the best of ways. As she stared small business in the face, things began to transpire. Her fashion designer life paired with stay-at-home mom responsibilities was a continual juggling act, but it was working. However, like all small businesses, especially in the sustainable and fair trade circle, there are challenges.
