Interview Tidbit: Angie Davis of Byrd&Belle

On this exciting book journey we have the pleasure of interviewing nearly 100 women who are running interesting, inspiring, and innovative companies. While we of course will be including lots of details in the book and discussing the interviews over the next year, in the meantime we wanted to share a few tidbits from each amazing interview!

Last winter, Adelaide, like many others, fell in love with the grey felt ipod/iphone sleeves. Ever since she’s been intrigued with Angie DavisByrd&Belle store. We were thrilled to learn more about this entrepreneur.

Here are a few things that stuck out:

Amy- I learned just how central autonomy is to Angie’s feelings of happiness and success. That autonomy ranges from having creative control of her products and designs to creating her own schedule and routine – Angie loves never having to set an alarm clock!

Adelaide- Angie’s story really highlighted for me how important the role of experimentation and trying new things is. It has played a critical role in the evolution of her business ( a la the runaway success – a felt laptop sleeve). But at the same time she is responsible for creating collections and that requires careful curation and restraint. A great creative and artistic paradox and challenge!

Thank you, Angie!
