UPScale Podcast Series Presenting Smash + Tess with Ashley Freeborn

Listen On

Join us in celebrating Small Business Month this October with UPS, as we present the UPScale Podcast Series! Where we will be talking to small business owners about what it takes to have a successful and thriving company. We’ll also get into some of their secrets for managing UPS as partners along with all these other topics that are key when you’re running your own enterprise!

For our last episode on this podcast series, we got the chance to chat with the Co-Founder and CEO of Smash + Tess,  Ashley Freeborn. Ashley spent the better part of a decade working as an educator before making the leap to corporate training and culture, where she worked in the finance sector for almost three years. Although she loved it dearly, she still felt the need for a fun and fresh creative outlet — enter Smash + Tess. After finding a void in the loungewear market, she attended the summer fashion program at Conde Nast in London, UK, and the rest is history!

Ashley shares her inspiring journey and how she overcame many obstacles to reach where she is today. She tells us about the partnerships that helped make it happen, like UPS for example which really played an important role in helping Ashley succeed.
