Twists Turns & Lessons Learned podcast

Whether you’re starting a new career, building a business, or finding it difficult to wake up and complete a job you despise. Understand there are folks in your community who have been in your shoes, faced similar concerns, and struggled with the same fears you do! Successful individuals find ways to overcome obstacles and become financially wealthy, happy, and live a lifestyle they always dreamed of. It’s important that we all recognize the battles they faced, and the sacrifices they made to get to where they are now. Success is not something that arises overnight! Mistakes will be made, failure will occur, and even though you rarely hear about these challenges and sacrifices made by the ones who are successful, they are there. Some may bury them deeper than others, but through the process of asking the right questions you can uncover those battles. We are here to reveal those stories, and no matter what stage of life you are in, the insight that will be shared today will better your future, give you motivation, and a taste of what those hard times looked like to those who were once in your position. So stop feeling alone, or unaccompanied by the hard times of doing something only a few have the opportunity and willingness to accomplish, because you’re about to find out that even the very best, brightest, and most successful have business scars.

Twists, Turns, & Lessons Learned 003 Desert Rebel (Abbey Harding)

Abbey Harding is a young entrepreneur and the founder of Desert Rebel. Desert Rebel is a clothing company that specializes in handmade, fashionable, and empowering children's clothing for mothers all across the nation, allowing them to dress their kids in a more unique and expressive manner. BIO: Abbey Harding After graduating high school, I enrolled at Arizona State University in hopes of pursuing a career in teaching. After going through the motions for 2 years, I started to realize that college was not benefiting my life in the way that was expected. This was a point in time where I truly had not discovered my passion yet. Because of this, I ended up dropping out and it left me completely lost and depressed. I felt like I had failed myself and I had no idea what I was supposed to do with my life moving forward. Some say you have to lose yourself to find yourself, and that is exactly what I did. I eventually started creating, reconstructing and up-cycling pieces out of boredom and I quickly found MYSELF. I realized that life is all about the ride, not the destination, and I wanted to enjoy the entire ride. I knew I did not want to spend my ride sitting in an office from 9-5 everyday, which is just me. I knew I had to spend my life creating and making magical sh*t for everyone around the world to rock. I first started Fairy Stitched Couture - a tutu shop for kids and enjoyed it but I wanted to add more to my shop. I soon found a serious passion for creating distressed styled clothing and started offering some distressed pieces in my tutu shop. Not long after that, I had women asking left and right for me to make a distressed women's collection. They were looking to wear the clothing that I had been designing/creating for babies and kids. Because of the added interest, I decided I wanted to create a new brand that fit both me and my shops style. I was born and raised in Arizona and will forever be a desert child and I don't always believe in following the "system". Sometimes I like to color outside the lines and I have learned that that is ok. You don’t always have to take the path everyone else is on. That is when I came up with Desert Rebel, I created this brand to offer empowerment for my fellow rebels and RAD apparel for women and kids. I hope all my pieces bring you as much happiness as they have brought me. Stay wild. Be yourself. & Follow your dreams.

Twists, Turns, & Lessons Learned 014 Scrapbook.com (Drex Davis)

It began in 1999. Jill Davis had been scrapbooking for over 25 years, was an expert crafter and taught local sold-out classes on paper crafting. Creative expression filled her life with meaning and joy and she loved sharing that passion with others so much that she wanted to do it on a larger scale. Soon after, through a series of miraculous events - some might even call it fate - Jill was able to obtain the domain name Scrapbook.com. She jumped in feet first and started Scrapbook.com out of her home office, launching the first version of the site at the turn of the millennium. Tune in as we sit down with Jill’s son and co-owner, Drex Davis. We hear how much has changed over the last 20 years, from the communities they serve, to the resources they use, but one thing stands true, their passion to empower beautiful, meaningful, handmade creation. Everything they do is with the intent to keep that their #1 focus, and because of it they’ve exceeded their wildest dreams and now operate a company happily welcoming millions of crafters every month!
