Episode 15: Lauren-Ashely


Hola Gwapas and welcome to episode 15 of the Hola Gwapa Podcast! For those of you who are new to the show I’m your host Nisha Btesh. I’m also the Founder and Creative at Hola Gwapa a digital community of almost 12 thousand artists and creatives from all over the world, a blog, a website, an online shop, podcast and most recently a small batch slow fashion line! On this podcast we take the creative conversations even further, sharing the real stories, tips and tricks the Artists in this community have found on their journey to success. 

I’m SO thrilled to introduce you Lauren-Ashley Founder and Designer of Pineapple Sundays, a Stationery + Gift Co that's all about celebrating and bringing more positive vibes into everyday life. In this episode we talk transparently about how we’re both working two full time jobs to make our side hustles a reality, the power of learning when to say no and when to say YES, how to pitch your brand, burnout… because we all know how real it is… and her over the top obsession for meaningful moments of SELF CARE and how each of us can continue to create more of them. Another amazing thing to note about Lauren-Ashley is that for every product purchased she donates a portion to support organizations and programs that empower women & people of color. SO if you’re at all interested in the world of product design I can guarantee Lauren-Ashley’s story of self discovery, entrepreneurship and persistence is totally going to inspire you.  And with that let’s get into the show!

Thank you so much for listening to this episode with Lauren-Ashley. I hope you gained as much value and inspiration from her story as I did! If you love what you heard please make sure you rate and review this episode on Apple Music and/or spotify. It really helps to spread episodes like this one to other creatives looking for their daily dose of inspiration + I would be forever grateful.
