Could you be sitting on a million dollar business idea?
If you've ever had anyone tell you that you don't have what it takes to do something or told yourself you need a fancy degree or MBA to start something, you want to listen to this episode!
Raegan Moya-Jones is in the guest chair today. She was told by her boss that she didn't have what it took to be an entrepreneur and faced a ton of rejections when starting her business. She didn't let that get to her and managed to start a $100 million dollar business whilst holding down a full time job and without any fancy degrees.
Raegan co-founded aden + anais, the baby lifestyle brand globally recognized for its high-quality design driven muslin swaddles and baby products in 2006. Raegan continued to work full-time as a sales executive whilst building aden + anais until May 2009 when she resigned to run the business full-time. Raegan sold the company in 2013 and continued on as the CEO until 2017.
In 2014 Raegan was named as one of EY’s Entrepreneurs Of The Year. aden + anais was also named to SmartCEO’s 2015 Future list and Crain’s New York Business Fast 50 list for three consecutive years. The Fast 50 feature highlights New York's most successful and innovative companies for their growth, strategies and success. In 2012 the company was listed at #377 on the Inc.5000 list having achieved a 3-year growth rate of 987%.
Raegan has most recently co-founded Saint Luna Spirits, a premium moonshine brand that was released in the United States in June 2019.
Raegan sits on the board of directors for Hopeland, a non-profit created to pioneer innovative solutions and build new partnerships to prevent family separation, reunify children who are separated from their families, and mobilize a movement of families to support children who are growing up outside of family care. Raegan is the national best-selling author of What It Takes - How I Built a $100 Million Dollar Business Against the Odds ~ published by Portfolio-Penguin Random House in May 2019.
