I am so happy to welcome Emily Bordner back to the podcast. She is the founder of accessories brand and retailer EB & Co. She recently opened their second location on the Country Club Plaza – making our stores neighbors.
Emily was a guest on the podcast early last year before the pandemic was in full swing. I encourage you to listen to that episode first (linked here) as it’s an interesting time capsule when the pandemic was not top of mind. Fast forward a year, and we discussed what it’s like to run a business in unprecedented times including opening a new retail location all while experiencing major life changes like marriage and a new baby.
Emily’s go-to piece of advice? Have the courage to ask for help. She admits to falling victim to the “doing it all” mindset. The greatest gift she gave herself and her family was stepping back and accepting help when it was offered. Taking the initial steps to receive support led Emily to seek out help from others who were experts in their fields and helped her business and family life flourish.
It was great catching up with Emily, and I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it. If you want to find out more about Emily or Eb & Co., you can find them at ebandcompany.com or on Instagram @eb.and.co.
