Listen to my LIVE interview on Disrupt Radio's Start-Up Nation show to learn why profit is just as important as purpose.

I was recently interviewed by Omar De Silva for Disrupt Radio's Start-Up Nation show on all things profit and purpose. It was such a great reminder that when you're growing an ethical, sustainable, circular or slow fashion brand - you can't have one without the other.

The more money you make = the more good you can do in the world, and you can make ethical and sustainable choices, but you need to profit in order to deliver your purpose.

That means making money, and lots of it. Here’s some healthy money beliefs for you…

1️⃣ You can have both purpose and profit, you don’t have to choose one or the other. There’s a way to run your business ethically and stay true to your purpose at the same time while increasing your profit. Learn more about that here.

2️⃣ Ethically making money isn’t greedy, that’s how we change the world. I make the world a better place every single day through my business. I plant a tree with every order. I donate to charities and good causes. I do a whole lot of good things, but I also make money, and it’s not greedy or wrong or bad. Why? Because the more money I make, the more I can donate. The more money I make, the more trees I can plant. The more money I make, the bigger the marketing budget I have to inspire more people to create positive change with their fashion businesses. Making money ethically is a good thing because it means making a bigger impact. Learn more about increasing your sales here, so you can increase your impact. 

3️⃣ You can be grateful and follow your purpose - and still want to make more money. It’s ok to want to make money because there are a lot of things that need fixing in the world – and money fixes those things. If you’re running a purpose-driven fashion business, you SHOULD make more money, because the world needs more good people making money who use that money to make the world a better place.

If you’re running an ethical, sustainable, circular or slow fashion business that you launched so that you could change the world, but you’re not paying yourself a wage, you haven’t got a business. You have a very expensive hobby.

If you want to learn how to change that, book a strategy session here and I’ll help you turn your business around.

I spent my first five years in business stressed and in debt.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or if you're not making enough sales to survive, you're not alone. I've been there.

I was exhausted and I wanted to quit.

Then I worked out a strategy that dramatically changed my business, increased my sales, and saved me time. I want to share it with you!


Want to know the top three ways to grow a successful and sustainable fashion brand?


    Every week on Instagram, you can ask me anything about fashion, business, ethical manufacturing, sustainability, and growth to get the answers you need to overcome challenges. Marketing, PR, your strategy, sales, how to wholesale, Instagram engagement, customers, sourcing... Whatever it is, ask me your questions and I'll go LIVE on Instagram with the answers you need to move forward.



    To build a successful, sustainable and profitable fashion business, you have to empower yourself with knowledge and learn from others in the industry. I ran one of the largest online stores for ethical and sustainable fashion for over a decade, and I learned the ins and outs and the rights and wrongs of building a business. Now I'm sharing my strategies on my blog so you can take what you need to grow!



    The only difference between a big fashion business and a small fashion business is a different skillset. Everything your competitors know - you can learn. My online courses and masterclasses are specifically designed for ethical and sustainable fashion brands, labels and businesses, so you can build your skillset, level up, fast-track your success and increase your impact.
