In this weeks episode, I speak with Leah Yard from Leah Yard Designs and the Voted Least Likely Podcast.
Leah is a designer, business owner, and podcast host. She is also a high school drop out and failure expert. From living on a lighthouse island as a child, to dropping out of high school and working entry-level jobs for over a decade, to accidentally becoming an entrepreneur: her story is far from glamorous. And yet she somehow ended up working in the fashion Industry. She started her jewellery brand Leah Yard Designs in 2013. In an industry that values prestige and glamour, she constantly felt like an imposter. Because of this, she now proudly shares her story on the Voted Least Likely Podcast. Her mission is to demystify what it takes to be successful. She wants her piece of internet real estate to be a place for people to share the stories that make them who they are. In this episode we discuss:
Growing up on a lighthouse island in BC
Hiding in a bathroom at an event when you don’t feel like you belong
Launching her podcast “Voted Least Likely”
Lessons of running a jewellery brand for 9 years
Dealing with the facade of entrepreneur success noise on social media
