Podcast: Let's Talk Shop with (our founder) Leonara

Last week I was lucky enough to be a guest on the Let’s Talk Shop podcast.

I’ve never done a podcast before so I’m really quite excited about it, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. You can listen to it here.

I spoke a lot about how TANAKA got started, and my motivation behind it all, which I’ve spoken about a lot in the past. However I also had the chance to speak about my complicated feelings surrounding the timing of when TANAKA really started to grow, which is something I haven’t really had the chance to speak much about in public.

More than anything else, it was nice to have a conversation with someone who has been with me through almost the entire process of building TANAKA, and to be able to reflect on how far I’ve come, both as a business and a person since I first started making soaps in my kitchen.

It may sound a bit cliche, but I do really feel so lucky to be able to do this, and I obviously wouldn’t be able to do it all without all of you, so I want to say thank you again for all of the support I’ve received since starting TANAKA, and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
