We also dive into how she got around starting her lifestyle brand as a side hustle on top of having her full-time job in a design firm all during the pandemic, and lastly, she shares her passion for financial literacy.

If you know me, you know I enjoy taking pen to paper to get my thoughts out and draft plans and goals. During our conversation, Rhea explains how she uses her planner and I share how I intend to use it (or if you have any other planner it applies too) to keep track of my goals this year.
