Going with your gut instincts
Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com.
Today, we would like to introduce you to a very special guest, Jackie Ashley, the founder of Ashley & Co.
Jackie is a New Zealander entrepreneur who grew up in Hong Kong and just like Steve Jobs she started her brand in her garage seventeen years ago.
Together with her husband Ben, the duo grew the brand from strength to strength to a catalogue of over 70 skews, including eight signature scents.
Jackie’s range is now stocked in some of the world’s finest retail, hospitality and hotel hotspots in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
Most importantly, her brand recently partnered with Air New Zealand but this partnership has since paused no thanks to COVID-19.
Despite the halt, we still decided to ask Jackie on how she got her product into the skies, something that the DailyStraits.com understands is very hard to do and much more.
Without further ado, let’s listen to the interview here:
