I can’t wait for you to listen to this episode. It’s with two of the most inspiring women you will ever come across, Soraya Darabi and Maxine Bédat.

They co-founded Zady.com, a shopping platform and lifestyle destination for consumers who care about the origins of the items they purchase. What Whole Foods has done for the organic food movement, Zady does for fashion, including clothing, accessories and home decor. On Zady, customers can learn about the conscious consumer movement and purchase beautiful goods that were created with craftsmanship and artisanship qualities.

Zady has been named one of The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Retail by Fast Company and one of 22 Instagram Accounts Fashionistas Should Follow in 2014 by Buzzfeed.com.

Three takeaways from this interview in addition to their personal financial journeys:

– How and why Zady.com started a conscious consumer movement

– What’s it like to work with a friend

– The art of SLOW fashion! Apparently, it is a REAL thing and it is driving a paradigm shift in the American economy… and revolutionizing the way we may and most likely WILL be approaching money, travel and other aspects of our lives in not so distant future
