This week we’re joined by Nadia, a Visual Merchandising Manager for Anthropologie, as well as co-founder of MDLTN: pieces made to be well-loved and worn often. A self-described aesthete, Nadia has a special skill to see how things can be made more beautiful, and then to make them more beautiful. The snowball effect of deciding to focus her attention on the little steps along the way has allowed her to make meaningful progress in her life, career, and entrepreneurial ventures.

Topics include skipping college to build a career in retail, how to admit that you’re good at something, finding meaningful work, and building a business on top of your core values.
