What good collaboration should do is inspire you.

Today on the podcast I’m talking to co-founder and creative director of Dannijo Jewelry, Danielle Snyder. Dannijo Jewelry has a unique aesthetic and breaks the mold that often restricts high end jewelry and accessories, and it has been worn by everyone from Beyoncé to Taylor Swift

Danielle is a hustler – she started making jewelry when she was young with her father’s medical tools. She and her sister reunited after college and decided to pursue their passion to create this company. Listen in as we talk about her path to entrepreneurship, her creative process, how the company has used social media, the importance of collaboration, and so much more.

I think all the most important aspects of running a business and being an entrepreneur are the things that aren’t necessarily work.
