Listening to your inner guidance and forging your own path with Pip Edwards
Tory Archbold Interviewing Pip Edwards
Today I am chatting with Pip Edwards who co-founded the fashion brand, P.E Nation. I have known Pip for many years and have seen her go from strength to strength in the fashion industry and deliver global impact.
She truly embodies who she is unapologetically, and has developed such a powerful connection to her intuition shaping the impressive trajectory of her career.
Pip shares with us her professional journey which started working in a traditional corporate world for PricewaterhouseCoopers and how she felt pulled towards a creative career and took a powerful step forward by believing in herself and leaving behind the expectations others had placed on her.
She was always interested in fashion, always a free and creative spirit and the more she listened to herself, the more she realised she needed to take a powerful step into her creative path and destiny.
After many years working in the retail and fashion industry for other brands, Pip started her own brand P.E Nation with Co-Founder Claire Tregoning in 2016 which has experienced year on year growth and a global reputation with the who’s who of influencers who regularly endorse the brand on their social feeds. The brand is fun, vibrant, unique and the truest expression of who Pip is.
By trusting her gut instinct and being true to the kind of life Pip wanted to lead, she was able to cut through the noise of those around her, and step into her Power Zone wholeheartedly.
Pip shares her challenges when running a company as a single parent and how she overcame that pressure and feeling of judgement from others.
She is such an incredible and inspirational entrepreneur who has followed her own path and lived her life authentically in alignment with her values and energy.
I am honoured to be able to bring this conversation to you. Sit back and soak up all the creative energy, and get inspired to forge your own path!
