Danielle Holloway: Stepping Away From The Corporate World To Start A Company That Embraces The Rain
7 days ago
Leaving a cushy paying job that you like and jumping into the unknown, is probably one of the hardest things to do. No longer do you have stability or a paycheque. It's all up to you to succeed. There were times at the beginning that Danielle would hide her side hustle from the world. Packing the gum boots and shipping them to customers in the evening or on her lunch break, while still working her 9-5 job. She wasn't a hundred percent sure what was going to come of Merry People; but she knew she loved doing it. And she recognized there was a hole in the market. Instead of shying away from what she didn't know about entrepreneurship and business, she found people around her to mentor and guide her. And played to her strengths. Like many other entrepreneurs, ignorance can be bliss - it's often what allows a person to make the mistakes and try different things, because they don't know what the downfall will be. She knew she wanted more fashionable rain gear and gum boots, so instead of waiting for someone else to make them, she set to work. Take a listen to hear how she created Merry People, a company designed to make us embrace the rain and enjoy the elements. Get outside, no matter what the weather!
