Today, I am talking to Bridget Harriss from SailorMade!
I met Bridget, I think, last year I am actually a coach in a community called Flourish and Thrive Academy for jewelry desiners. Then later she hired me to help her with some website tweaks and we worked together to use her website to tell her brand story a little bit better and make it feel more inviting. It was so great to get to work with Bridget. Her business is all about sailors and like that living the boat on the ocean in the North-Eastern part of the United States.
Bridget Harriss is the owner of SailorMade, a nautical jewelry and lifestyle company. Bridget has a really interesting story of becoming a business owner after her company had been around for a few years. You'll also hear all about the things she's learned along the way and how she plans to expand her community.
