Do You Believe You Can Move Mountains with Your Passion?
Every day entrepreneurs all over the world are creating innovative new products, services, and ideas, but can you? Rachael McCrary joins me to share what it takes to be a leader in this time and what it takes to start moving your own mountains. Listen as we chat about serving a need, doing the research, and making sure your team is on the same page with you.
Rachael has been in the fashion industry for over 20 years. She has been nurturing relationships with overseas factories and sourcing products for her own businesses and for start-ups that she has helped through consulting. Those relationships made her move into developing PPE and sourcing Covid tests seemed like a natural progression.
She’d already dipped her toes into the protective apparel market with RxBra and the move into highly needed PPE seemed like a good fit. This move wouldn’t have been possible without the infrastructure and team she already had in place. Listen as she shares what it took to move into the PPE market and why she was so passionate about combining science and fashion to create truly necessary apparel.
For Rachael, the best way to find the career of your dreams is to follow your passion. If you’ve ever thought to yourself, man I’d love to get paid to do this thing, try it out. Other people may want the thing that you’re passionate about, but you have to have the passion and drive to make it happen.
