The Busi-Ness Podcast with Emily Austen


#01: Marisa Hordern + Missoma

Season 1, Ep. 1

Welcome to The Busi-Ness Podcast.

My first guest, and what a guest to kick off me talking at you for an hour, is founder of everyone’s favourite jewellery brand, Missoma. Marisa Hordern founded the infamous brand in 2008, and has seen extraordinary global success. Adorned by the fingers and earlobes of our favourite celebrities, including Kate Bosworth, Ellie Goulding, Margot Robbie, and even a few royals, Missoma has moved with the times, launching a more sustainable collection, a new gender fluid range, and more recently, fine jewellery.

Marisa and I caught up about multi-tasking, cracking America, raising money, making bad decisions, why giving yourself moments to breathe is a crucial way to manage the noise + how to build a community outside of just your product range. We talked about the power of celebrity, and social media, why you have to accept that not everyone will work, and that being adventurous is such an important skill for a modern entrepreneur. Marisa is really open and honest about her journey, and I hope you feel inspired by all that she has achieved.
