In today's episode, you'll hear from Kiya Tomlin, an African American designer and entrepreneur who created her company with the goal of making comfortable and age-appropriate designs. Kia shares how she transitioned from a lifelong pursuit to be a surgeon to becoming an internationally successful entrepreneur as a fashion designer. You'll learn why the Tomlins created their own family crest and are committed to giving their children a legacy to be proud of generationally, and exactly why Kiya’s company was able to pivot, and eventually thrive, when COVID-19 restrictions began. You'll hear her best advice for entrepreneurs starting out, and how to stay connected in a marriage when both people are ambitious and successful in demanding careers.
