EP 012- Jessica Honegger: Founder & Co-CEO of Noonday Collection

 

Jessica is the Founder & Co-CEO of Noonday Collection. In this episode, hear how Jessica’s creative problem-solving efforts helped her launch a socially responsible business.

During the height of the recession Jessica, a midwife and real estate agent, found herself needing to raise funds for her families’ adoption.   She decided to partner with Jalia and Daniel, two jewelry designers she met in Uganda to create jewelry to sell at a trunk show. Jessica’s community showed up and supported this venture and Noonday Collection was born.

Jessica then began to dream how this could become a company that empowers artisans businesses to grow and positively impact their own communities. Learn from her challenges and successes of running a socially responsible business, as well as what  intentional scalability means.  Her wisdom and passion to make the world a better place through entrepreneurship is palpable and will leave you considering how you can do your part.
