Skimm'd from The Couch - June 27, 2018 - 22:49

Ariel Kaye's career in home goods started out as a side hustle. But in 2013, she decided to leave a stable career in advertising and turn that side hustle... into her main hustle. She called it Parachute. These days, if you're like us, you might go to sleep and wake up in Ariel’s products every day. On the couch, Ariel talks to us about staying zen, using her advertising background to grow her brand, and making sure her employees have time for themselves. Oh, and big news: the day we released this episode, Parachute announced that they received $30 million in Series C funding.
