Raegan Moya-Jones is no stranger to taking a leap. Her first jump was that of an international move at 29 when she moved to Brooklyn, NY from Australia. The difficulties she faced while trying to build a career in a new country and unfamiliar space are similar to what many of us face today. Through the connections she made while working at the Australian consulate she later found herself with a full-time job at The Economist. Although it wasn't necessarily her dream job at the time Raegan put in the work and was able to create a "side hustle" that brought an Australian baby product to the US markets. Thus her entrepreneurial spirit was born as she became the founder and CEO of her first company aden + anais, an award-winning lifestyle brand for babies and children. Tune in now for more about Raegan’s life-changing move and how she built a business from the bottom up.
