Episode 412

My guest today is an expert in brand development, as well as a great example of an entrepreneur who left the corporate world to create a life that felt more fulfilling.

Suzy Haber Wakefield knew at an early age she wanted to work in design in New York and she landed an amazing job in lingerie and apparel design with Victoria’s Secret.

Her 16-year career allowed her to travel the world and gain such valuable knowledge of brand development.

As her job evolved, she felt too far away from the creation process and the impact she knew she could make if she opened her own business.

She left her Corporate job to follow a path to a more fulfilling work life.

If you’ve ever left, or are thinking of leaving, the career you once loved but now you know it’s time for something different – this is the episode for you!
