We have some exciting news to share! On March 9th, our very own Donna Smith — Miik founder, owner and creative director was featured on an awesome podcast for women called, "Your Next 50." The episode is part of an ongoing series on the show called, "Women Playing Big." Donna completely shifted career paths at age 50 from running a graphic design business to starting a fashion label that became Miik! The fact that Donna successfully pivoted later in her career to pursue something she has always been passionate about, is a story that hosts Sylvia Otvos and Jenny Mitchell thought was an inspiring story worth telling, and we completely agree. As Donna has said so many times, if she can do it, anyone can!
In this episode, there are SO MANY topics covered in just 40 minutes! Donna addresses her career change, how we've pivoted our business through the pandemic, and what has motivated her to keep going even when she's wanted to give up. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! The conversation is so effortless and fun, when Team Miik listened to it — we all agreed that it went in a flash, and that Donna needs to be on more podcasts! ❤️

Jenny Mitchell is a Miik customer (she's actually wearing a Miik tee and our blazer in this episode, can you guess which one it is?) and we were so honoured to have been invited to be participate in an episode of their podcast! We wish Jenny and Sylvia continued success with their podcast, and we're overjoyed to have made 2 fantastic new friends!
