232: Embracing the Power Within with Rachel Lim

Your biggest investment is yourself. Most of us don’t start out being great at anything. But we can learn, grow, and improve along the way. And if somewhere down the line you realise you’re not quite on the right path, you have the power to change that for your self.

Rachel Lim is the co-founder of Southeast Asia's leading womenswear brand Love, Bonito, an evolving brand taking on a meaningful approach to fashion.

Join Aileen and Rachel as they discuss what it really means to be a good leader, the importance or staying curious, and how you have the power to change the trajectory and path of your life.
