Entrepreneurship runs in Monica Royer’s family. Her brother Andy founded Bonobos, the menswear company that changed the retail game. And Monica took notes on his journey before carving out a space of her own. She went on to found Monica + Andy, a company that makes organic baby blankets and clothing. This week, Monica joined us to share how she’s created a mentor network and how she got her business off the ground.
In this episode, Monica shares how she pivoted from the pharmaceutical industry to clothing (7:27), when she knew she had to act on her idea (think: in the hospital) (8:24), and how she’s cultivated a network of mentors beyond her own family (17:14).
