You all know how I feel about dogs and today, I got to sit down with one of the COOLEST gals on the block, known for her adorable frenchie and badass business–  Bridget Levine! With a background in fashion design and a love for dogs, Bridget Levine is the creator behind the uber-successful pet accessory brand, Frenchie Bulldog. With just a $5,000 loan and a dream to bring functional and fashionable apparel to the French Bulldog market, she invented the first reversible harness specifically designed for Frenchies and small-to-medium sized dogs. What started as one design, has since expanded into more than 75 unique fashions and accessories resulting in a multi-million dollar business.

But the BIGGEST thing I want you to take away from this episode is that YOU can 1000% turn your passions into a career and leverage doing what you LOVE to create a life of your dreams. I’m not saying it’s easy– it’s gonna take some hustle and some heart– but Bridget is yet another piece of living PROOF that it is possible– so why not YOU too?  If you haven’t stumbled across @frenchie_bulldog on Instagram, or her @bridgetandleo page, then #1. You’re missing out, and #2. Your pup is going to have it’s most stylish year yet! I can’t wait for you to hear from Bridget as we chat entrepreneurship, business, dreams, and doggies! Let’s get into it!
