Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with my her long-time friend, Raxann Chin. Raxann hails from Montego Bay, Jamaica and is a fashion designer, costume designer and stylist. We talk about Raxann's professional journey and how to face tough decisions.

Her journey has not been a straight or easy one. Raxann shares with us how she wrestled with tough decisions and career changes throughout the years. After 20 years of working on Wall Street, she left after the 2008 market crash with no exit strategy. She took a leap, availed herself and showed up. And she now encourages us to invest in our dream, be inquisitive enough to find out information and get into spaces.

This is how she started her company, Femheka. Femheka is an umbrella company of wardrobe experiences which incorporates three different business lines. Femheka has seen much success throughout the years. Some of Raxann’s most notable work includes working with companies like Coca Cola, the Empire State Building and Disney– with Disney being her biggest contract to date. Her work can also be seen in the Eric Garner documentary film, music videos, at award shows and in Harper’s Bazaar.
