Today’s guest Jennifer Cox has been dubbed the Tie-Dye “Ninja” and Denim Wash Specialist. She spent a highly successful 20-year career in corporate America as a Wash Specialist for Abercrombie & Fitch, Mossimo Supply at Target, and other private label denim brands. She’s made & designed clothing for everyone from Nordstroms to Macy’s, Target, and Walmart.
Jen accomplished all of this as a single mother of two sons before being laid off in early 2020. In this episode, she and I discuss the guts it took for her to bet on herself in a big way. She shares her journey into entrepreneurship during the pandemic. Jen is the Founder & CEO of Momma Osa, a company that creates tie-dye kits for Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom’s, Lands’ End, and more. Her kits have been featured on Good Morning America. She shares what led her to cash out her 401k to buy 40,000 masks and the worst advice she was given when she started out on her own.
Listen in as Jen and I talk about the early steps to starting your own business, our favorite growth strategies for entrepreneurs, and why she doesn’t believe entrepreneurs have to focus on one project at a time.
