Episode 021 - Rachel Nilsson and the Importance of Relationships

Freedom to Fail

Rachel Nilsson is the perfect example of starting from nothing and finding success. From buying supplies for her initial run at Home Depot to using her husband's old shirt for the first iterations of her product, she created the perfect romper for children, without any snaps, called the Rag, which is why her company is now called Rags. Immediately after launching Rags, Rachel found success. Less than a year after starting to sell she had already generated $750,000 in revenue. This led to an appearance on the popular TV show, Shark Tank, where the sharks were impressed by her humble beginnings and success. Yet with this success, she also went through periods of isolation and failures, which is what she shares with us today.
