#52: Jane Lu – Failure and Success, Taking Risks and Never Giving Up with ‘The Lazy CEO’ – Your Dream Life Podcast

Join Kristina as she chats with the wonderful Jane Lu, or the ‘Lazy CEO’ as she’s also known. After being inspired to quit her corporate job, or ‘cubicle life’ as she calls it, Jane started the online global fashion empire, Showpo, from her parent’s garage. And what started off as a laptop and two shelves of clothing back in 2010, is now a global online empire, shipping to 80 countries with a huge social following of over 3.5 million!

Jane believes her success with Showpo comes from building a passionate, highly skilled and dedicated team who also share this belief. Through failing and getting right back up and trying again, Jane is the perfect example of resilience and a never-give-up mindset.

Jane’s ‘Lazy CEO’ name is definitely not a reflection of her work ethic. While her ways may be a little untraditional, the name comes from her strong belief that once you have found a job you love, you’ll never have to work another day in your life.

In this inspiring episode, Jane very openly shares with us how she went from being $60,000 in debt to being listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 and winning Online Retailer of the Year. Listen in to this incredible episode now to learn:

#47: What is a Dream Life? with Kristina Karlsson – Your Dream Life Podcast

What is a dream life? What does living your dream life mean? If you’ve ever wondered these exact thoughts, Kristina’s latest episode is the perfect place to start!

Remember, your dream life doesn’t have to be a big life. It is whatever connects with your heart. It doesn’t mean you have to go out and start your own business, or take your career to the next level, or do more. It could mean the opposite. Perhaps you’ll actually do less, work less, take more time for you and your loved ones, whatever that is for you. There truly is no right or wrong when creating your dream life.

Listen now as Kristina shares how a dream life for her is living a life worth living. How it’s about finding out what is really important to you and so much more!
