Listening to lots of really interesting podcasts have helped map and prioritise the planning and processes. Elizabeth Stiles, Kayte Ferris, Lola Hoad have all offered plenty of pointers for the navigation to setting up a new business / fashion brand. What to have on your radar, gaining huge insight into the many facets of getting your own business up and running the right way that works for me. Invaluable honest advice!
