I started my very first business, Ezzy Lynn, when I was 24 years old. Three years later, my co-founders and I decided to call it quits and I finally feel okay to talk about it.
When you end a business you lose a part of your identity. It's so easy and normal to feel shame and hopelessness. You wonder if you'll ever be an entrepreneur again.
In this episode I share my story of starting and ending my first business, along with the most powerful lessons that shaped my current freedom lifestyle.

  • quitting my job to become an entrepreneur
  • launching the business at a music festival
  • partnering with the World Wildlife Fund 🐼
