539 Jennifer Teixeira: Welcoming Challenges
How Personal Needs Spark Business Innovations
When we look back on our journeys in life and as entrepreneurs, we come to understand it was the challenges, failures and setbacks that powered our learning and confidence to succeed in business.
What have you overcome in your own life – and what did you learn?
Today we meet an inspiring entrepreneur who overcame breast cancer as she was growing her business, all with three young children in tow.
Jennifer Teixeira is the founder and CEO Sweet, Sweet Honey Hawaii, a children’s fashion brand drawing on her native culture and a gap she perceived in the market for colorful, fun and practical clothing for her own children.
Jennifer shares how she built her brand as she battled breast cancer, what she learned from her customers as she share her struggle – plus, how she now uses her growing company to “give forward” to help those in need and combat climate change.
- Why its vital for any entrepreneur to embrace challenges, failures and setbacks with gratitude and leverage the learning in them
- How to find a profitable business idea from what you think is missing in your own life – or what inspired you as a child
- How being diagnosed with breast cancer taught Jennifer she was stronger than she thought she was – and gave her the confidence to overcome all business hurdles
- How she chose to share her cancer battle vulnerably with her customers, and how her customers supported her
- How to ask for help
- Why your morning routine and meditation is key to your success
- How to use your business to help those in need, and the environment
- How to avoid burnout and being your own bottleneck after getting used to “doing it all” in the early stages of your startup
- And much more!
