Episode 4 was tons of fun because I got to catch-up with my friend, Audree, of Simply Audree Kate. Audree is a NYC-based fashion stylist, editor, fashion consultant and founder of the Simply Audree Kate blog where she talks about all things style + her life in the fashion industry.
In this conversation we dive into so many nuggets — from getting your dream internship (she interned for Redbook Magazine while she was a student at Arizona State), how she transitioned into freelance from her work in the corporate world, how to know if entrepreneurship is right for you, when to know it’s okay to be a “yes man” + how to bounce back from the inevitable rejections we all will face.
Grab your notebook + a pen because you’ll want to take notes for this one, babe.
