Episode 31 - Choosing your creative passion instead of a corporate career & building an ethical jewelry brand from the ground up

Welcome back to Be The Girl podcast.  My guest today is Chi Mai, founder of Melbourne based ethical jewelry label S-kin Studio Jewelry. A truly inspiring female founder, Chi, has an amazing story to share, plus some wonderful business insights and learnings experienced along the way. Chi was born in Vietnam and moved to Australia for love! Growing up, and in her early twenties, she felt a lot of pressure from her parents to be a high achiever and to be successful in the corporate world, but after spending time here in Australia she realised that 'corporate life' wasn't what made her heart sing so she let go of what she thought she had to be and followed her creative dreams instead. We chat all about Chi's move from a Management Consulting to business owner, letting go of what we think we 'have' to do or 'should' do in our careers to follow our true passion and Chi's personal experience with this, the path to creating her business, why a commitment to sustainability and ethical manufacturing to reduce the effects of 'fast fashion' are an integral part of S-kin and Chi's mantra coming into a new year.
