In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview creative rockstar Melissa Mendez about being an apparel consultant, entrepreneur, new Mom, and podcaster.

In this episode, I interview Melissa Mendez of Melissa Mendez Design Studio and host of the Women Crafting Success podcast about being an entrepreneur and starting her own business. We talk about the apparel industry and what someone with her skill set does to get designs from creative drawing to a real-world item you can wear. Also, being from NYC, we talk the city, and both being newish Moms, we talk that too!

This is a great interview to listen to if you’re a creative, an entrepreneur, you dream of starting your own business, or you’re a new Mom trying to balance creative work with motherhood.

  • Who Melissa is
  • How she started as a creative
  • What training she received to get where she is now
  • Heading out on her own with her first business endeavor
