What do a podcaster, chicken farmer, and founder of a global fair trade fashion brand have in common? In this case they all happen to be today’s guest, Liz Bohannon! Liz is here sharing her journey from graduating with her degree in journalism, to testing out careers she felt curious about (yes including starting a chicken farm) and finding a surprising passion for creating a sustainable fashion company. It’s about closing the gap between your interests and values, and translating that into your career. Ultimately, what that meant for Liz, has been taking her value of sustainability and helping women and girls all over the world, into making an impact for everyone that comes in contact with Sseko Designs. Tune in to hear some incredible investigative questions Liz has asked herself to guide her path, and how tapping into being a beginner can be a superpower at any age or season of your career.
