110: How Raegan Moya-Jones Built A $100 Million Business Against The Odds

Description

My guest on the podcast today is Raegan Moya-Jones. Raegan Moya-Jones built aden + anais while working a full-time job in ad sales and with only $15,000 in initial capital, and didn’t quit her 9-5 until a+a hit the $1 million mark in revenue. After working with a manufacturer to have prototypes made of the swaddling blankets, Raegan knew she was onto something after giving birth to her second daughter and realizing the nurses at the hospital had swiped all her samples. Without an MBA, Moya-Jones took a more grassroots approach to building the brand by going door-to-door to boutiques in her spare time to spark interest in her muslin blankets. In 2013, Prince George emerged from the hospital in aden + anais, subsequently causing the company’s site to crash from high demand (read more about it here). On this episode we discussed: - What inspired Raegan to write her new book - What it takes, How I built a $100 million business against all odds. - The beginning of her story of how Aiden and Anais started - How she went from being a rebellious young woman, struggles with her mum, not having a high priced MBA to becoming the CEO of a $100 million business. - The issues women face and the stereotype placed upon us despite our ability to build an incredibly successful business, raise children and more - all at the same time. - Her biggest challenges and successes building Aiden and Anais? - Her tips for women to become more successful with money and in business How to keep up with Raegan: - Via her website at https://raegan moyajones.com - Get her book, What it takes, How I built a $100 million business against all odds. In it, she covers: What it’s like butting heads with investors (or co-founders, what to really do when you’re running out of money and experiencing “mum guilt” and what to do with it (wanting to start a business does not mean you love your family any less!).
