In this episode, we get to hear from Astrid Mueller, a lovely and enthusiastic lady who’s armed with different tools and tips for the fashion industry and beyond. I love her passion and her excitement!
In this interview, Astrid shares how she decided to challenge herself and make her childhood dreams come true. Of course, that didn’t just happen overnight. From working for other people to starting her first company, Astrid learned first-hand about the importance of branding and purpose when it comes to running a business.
It took a little bit of time and some hard work, but after her re-design and re-launch, Astrid began to experience the success that comes with focusing on and attracting her ideal customers.
What she shares about branding and focusing on a very narrow niche market is so spot-on, especially when you’re just starting your business. If you don’t start narrow, it’s really hard to get known for something.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do – and be sure to listen closely to take in the 3 Power Tips that Astrid shares!
