EPISODE #29: TRUSTING YOUR GUT WITH EMMA HENDERSON AND VICTORIA BEATTIE FROM THE BEACH PEOPLE

Create something when you can't find it yourself. That's what sisters Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie of The Beach People did when they created their first product, the iconic roundie towel. Fast forward to today and the sisters have built a globally admired brand of luxury seaside essentials but like many other creative businesses, their success hasn't been a walk in the park. They've had to work hard, very hard, to get to where they are today and trusting their gut to make big decisions in their business has been a huge part of that journey.

So today I am excited to speak to the girls about creating something when you can find it yourself, managing the early days of a creative business, recognising the need to dream bigger, pushing yourself to grow your business, making decisions, trusting your gut in business, working with family, blending mum life and work life, and product growth.

 

"Everything stems really naturally from our every day life."

"Business is never a finished to do list, it's always an ongoing to do list."

"This is so much bigger than we expected, and that's when we acknowledged the business and have it the respect it deserved." 

"We still put our lifestyle first and we never thought it would create a dream career for us.
