Wendy Quek: On admitting a corporate career was not for her, how her brand Coastberry was over 10 years in the making, and coming full circle as an entrepreneur mom
Show Notes

You know that saying: Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly. It feels like today’s guest, Wendy, brings this phrase to life. Her latest venture Coastberry is the result of trials and errors not just in her other entrepreneurial pursuits, but also in her career choices through the years. Finding her true love for running her own business and serving her customers was a journey that took over 10 years, as she navigated modelling, working for her family business, several jobs in the corporate world, multiple side hustles, and now motherhood.

As a brand with thoughtfully designed baby bath and bedtime essentials, Coastberry's mission is to bring joy as much as it brings practicality and quality to a routine all parents are familiar with.

- How her last corporate role where she served blogshop merchants helped her understand where her true desires lie
- Having the courage to carve her own path and coming full circle as a brand owner
