Learning How to Start Over with Olivia Howell
“Life is a series of fresh starts, and everybody is worthy of the support. We are about meeting people where they are and celebrating them.” – Olivia Dreizen Howell
After her own divorce and watching her sister call off her engagement the following year, Olivia was left with two significant questions: Why do we only celebrate weddings and new babies with the support of a registry? And Why are other major life changes like transitioning into divorce, graduating from a Ph.D. program, or even changes in career, not met with that same support? In search of the answer, she found an incredibly innovative and revolutionary business opportunity. In today’s episode, Jess and Carlyn are back in the studio sitting down with Olivia Howell, co-founder and CEO of Fresh Starts Registry, a one-stop-shop for everything you need to begin again and the only platform that aggregates support experts for all life changes while also, supporting the Fresh Starts team of experts in their marketing, business, and public relations. Olivia shares with us her passion for celebrating and supporting people with what they need most to move ahead into their next phase of life, what the market research revealed to her, how she leveraged her 20 years of experience in marketing while building her business, and so much more!
