Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Shoe Consultant, Susannah Davda.

Susannah has worked around shoes her entire career. But as her career progressed, she felt the desire to start her own business and find a way to help others through her work. She took a year out to determine what exactly her business would be. She tried on a few ideas for size, and finally concluded that helping shoe brands create the kind of shoes that women deserve was the right path for her.

Listen to this episode to be inspired by how Susannah has built and grown her shoe consulting business. How she jumped in and figured out her why along the way, and her best advice for your own business growth journey.

It's your decisions that make or break your business, adding a certain amount of pressure. I hadn't quite realised that before I started. It's up to us as business owners to plan our days for success. - Susannah Davda
