From Shopify to Starting A Sustainable Intimates Business From The Ground Up


I’m passionate about saying what you mean, asking for exactly what you want and a lover of all things fashion and beauty. 

Hi, I'm SAM

On today’s episode of Born to Be, Sam chats with Rebecca Mazzara, founder and CEO of Calita Intimates. After four years at Shopify, she was laid off, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as she finally decided to start her own business.

Rebecca shares the inspiration behind her intimates business and how she built it from the ground up.

She discusses how her time at Shopify influenced her decision to become an entrepreneur.

You’ll learn about Rebecca’s experience starting an intimates line for women who have no prior experience in fashion.

She also offers advice for people who want to start their own e-commerce business, and why she believes she was born to be a storyteller.

Join Sam and Rebecca for this fascinating discussion about cold calling, starting an e-commerce business, and email marketing.
