E01: On how to do more with less - ADAY


About this episode

It’s such an honour to kick off Chief Best Friends with ADAY’s co-founders Meg He and Nina Faulhaber. As a fan of their brand, it’s even more inspirational when we found out that ADAY was built on the idea of having fewer pieces you can do more in. We love how they’re being more intentional in a world of fast-fashion. We’re so delighted to have Meg and Nina talk to us about how they got together from their meet cute moment in Goldman Sachs and how that experienced gave them a glimpse of each other’s integrity and work ethic that would eventually lead them to start a business together.
