What It Takes AudioBook Summary
The founder of global baby brand aden + anais reveals how she built a $100 million business from her kitchen table.
Raegan Moya-Jones never thought of herself as an entrepreneur. She was a wife, a mother, and a full-time corporate cog in her 30s. But she was sick and tired of her micromanaging boss, so she quietly started a company in the wee hours of the morning while her daughters were asleep. She finally quit her 9-5 when her side hustle, boutique baby swaddle brand aden + anais, hit the $1 million mark in revenue. It now generates over $100 million a year in revenue.
In this riveting and vulnerable story of all the bumps in the road, What It Takes is Moya-Jones’ tell-all and brutally honest advice to entrepreneurs – especially women – about how to succeed despite all odds. It doesn’t take an MBA to be your own boss. It takes commitment to an idea you believe in, working your arse off, and the will to learn more. If Moya-Jones, an outspoken Aussie and university dropout, could build a business from the ground up, anyone can.
Moya-Jones digs into topics most entrepreneurs shy away from, even the prickliest of things like mom guilt, butting heads with investors (or cofounders), and what to really do when you’re running out of money. The truth is, there’s no magic formula to build a business, and you don’t have to look or act a certain way to be successful. This empowering story from one of today’s most fascinating founders will show the hopeful entrepreneur or career changer that she doesn’t have to know it all. This story is about staying true to who you are, trusting your gut, and harnessing your unique talent. Do you have what it takes to jump in?
