Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - June 13, 2019 - 41:37

Our latest guest, Raegan Moya-Jones, never thought of herself as an entrepreneur. She was a full-time corporate cog in her thirties, with a family to help support. Sick of her micromanaging boss, she quietly started a company in the wee hours of the morning while her daughters were asleep, and once that side business, aden + anais, hit the $1 million mark in revenue, she quit to work on it full-time. The business now generates over $100 million a year in revenue. Out of it also came a book, What It Takes: How I Built a $100 Million Business Against the Odds, a tell-all and brutally honest tale that offers advice to entrepreneurs, especially women, about how to succeed despite all odds. It doesn’t take an MBA to be your own boss. If Moya-Jones, an outspoken Aussie and college drop-out, could build a business from the ground up, anyone can.Moya-Jones digs into topics most entrepreneurs shy away from, even the prickliest of things like mother guilt, butting heads with investors (or co-founders), and what to really do when you’re running out of money. There’s no magic formula to build a business, which also means you don’t have to look or act a certain way to be successful. This story will show the hopeful entrepreneur or career changer that she doesn't have to know it all. This story is about staying true to who you are, trusting your gut, and harnessing your unique talent. Have a money question?
