Do you want a dedicated community desperate to get their hands on your next product? How about a brand that radiates positivity and inspiration to all four corners of the globe? I know I do! That’s why I’m so excited to introduce our next guest… the glam, the ambitious, and the wildly successful Samantha Wills! Keeping it real and raw, she drops *loads* of valuable knowledge-bombs on growing a tribe, building a global presence, and setting boundaries that help you thrive.
At 21 years old, Samantha launched her jewelry and accessory brand with a bang. An instant success, she quickly rose up among the ranks of Australia’s most dynamic designers with her stunning designs lusted after by high profile celebrities like Taylor Swift and featured on Sex and the City. But we all know growth is a never ending journey full of wonderful surprises. After spending years dominating Australia’s design world, she chose to Open Wide and trust her intuition. In 2018, Samantha Wills Jewelry closed for business, freeing her for her next passion project, The Samantha Wills Foundation: Empowering Women In Business, where she is wholeheartedly dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs thrive.
