32 | How to create a successful organization while addressing social issues and revolutionizing the fashion industry – with Sophie Slater
Why you’ve got to listen to this episode:
Opening a business is not easy but doing so at 22 years of age with no previous business experience, in a highly competitive industry and in one of the most expensive cities in the world is just a massive undertaking. Now, doing so with the purpose of creating a positive social impact while trying to revolutionize a whole industry that’s just plain crazy, right?
That’s exactly what Sophie Slater, co-founder of Birdsong did. Fast forward 4 years and you have an organization that is creating some waves, generating global attention and very well-deserving accolades.
In this episode, you’ll hear how a couple of young passionate women are proving that you can have a successful business while doing good.
Who can benefit from listening in:
This episode is useful for anyone who wants to build an organization or business that does more than earning a profit. It shows how collaboration can be a winning recipe and how passion and determination can overcome even the toughest of challenges.
This is a really positive and inspiring story that shows that the path to what we believe in is attainable.
Key takeaways from this episode:
- A successful brand gives audiences reasons to care and belong not just to choose.

- Remarkable brands provide the means for their audience to live the story they want to live, even if only for a moment.
