Emily McDowell is a writer, illustrator and Founder of Emily McDowell & Friends; a greeting card and gift company that is innovating the industry. Emily was named one of Slate’s 10 Designers Who Are Changing The World.

In this episode, Emily shares two pivotal life moments that were the catalyst for her career shift from advertising into pursuing her passion. She talks through what you really need to think about before taking the leap and monetizing what brings you joy, the one thing that’s applicable to all entrepreneurs and businesses as well as adapting quickly with a growing business. Emily also discusses a fresh view on innovation and how you can make an impact without the need for tech and silicon valley investors.
