Today on the show, we have a woman who truly epitomizes the theme of this show, Her name is Christine Llewellyn and she is the Founder of Christine Joy Design. Christine Joy Design, LLC is a Brooklyn-based surface pattern design studio specializing in the home goods, apparel and consumer product markets. I first learned about Christine from a video on Facebook, that shared her journey to entrepreneurship and a partnership with West Elm. I actually saved this video two years ago for inspiration, before I even had any plans to start the Side Hustle Pro podcast. When I did start the podcast, I knew I would eventually need to have Christine in the guest chair.
One of the reasons I was so intrigued by Christine, is that she already had a successful career as a marketer, when she said, you know what, this is not what I really want to be doing with my life…and she pivoted to found Christine Joy Design.
How many of you have ever thought, oh it’s too late or I’ve been doing this for so long, I don’t want to start over. Well today’s episode just might just make you rethink all of that.
On today’s episode, Christine Llewellyn gets into:
- Why shouldn’t be afraid to pursue your passion…no matter what stage you are in your career
- How she took a leap of faith and started over from scratch
- How investing in herself and her business led to big rewards in major brand partnerships
- All of the revenue streams in her business
- Plus how she’s continuing to grow her brand
I really love what Christine had to share.
