33: Changing It Up to Stay On-Mission with Social Impact Pioneer Rebecca Van Bergen of Nest

You know what’s inspiring? Young women who pioneer. Even better when they succeed on a global scale. Today’s guest has done both. This year alone, Rebecca Van Bergen has helped impact the lives of over 28,000 artisans, their families and community members through Nest, a social enterprise and non-profit she founded in 2006 just as she was graduating college. Fast forward 10 years, and she’s got a thing or two to say about starting your own passion project, working to better the lives of artisans through positive fashion and pivoting your business model and approach to continue to best serve your mission.
