Failure can be the biggest gift - A conversation with Jessica Campbell

A Storytelling content platform featuring insights from women in Industry

This is the tip of the spear where I share my business growth, results and career strategies, chat to amazing women entrepreneurs & industry leaders.

In today’s episode, I’m introducing you to an Amazing Female Entrepreneur, Jessica Campbell.

Jess is the co-founder of Epiphany - - designed to showcase local South African talent that produces unique, quality goods, as well as local, small, female owned businesses who curate and create a selection of luxury pieces for your enjoyment.

The @shopepiphany brands are hand selected for those who prioritise style, taste and simplicity.

Jess follows trends but before that she follows her heart.  Her vision is to bring the people of South Africa's creative ability and talent to you from one platform, with a special focus on woman empowerment in our country. 

Epiphany Apparel | Home | Luxury is a place where you as a conscious consumer can come and support your fellow South African's consciously, whilst getting to know their story.

In this chat we talk about all things failure, mindset, following her heart, and building connections online and offline to grow your business.

I know we ALLLLLLL avoid using that four lettered F word…. FEAR. Is your tongue going dry and your heart beating a little faster? Let’s replace fear with another F word… FAITH. 

Over the years, I’ve defined my success as the ability to do what I want, when I want and with whom I want. Your definition may look completely different, but getting clear on what I imagine for my life is why I get to live it out today. 

It is she who listens to the rest of the world who fails, and it is she who has enough confidence to define success and failure for herself who succeeds.
- Sophia Amoruso

Jessica is a champion for South African Brands , has a great appreciation for what it means to be a local South African business, and lives from a place of authenticity.

When she started her journey down the path to her “perfect” career she had no idea that there would be as many detours, potholes and mountains as there have been. She left school with the intention of spending her life in a high powered corporate position as a Chartered Accountant. She wizzed through her degree but when it came to her post grad year, she was introduced to…..yes you guessed it…failure.

Failure was not something she had ever considered, and her Honours degree gave her 2 years of experience in dealing with things not going her way (not for the lack of trying though), and to really think about the decisions she had made for her life’s direction. Five years after school her priorities had changed somewhat. Money didn’t seem like the most important factor when deciding what she was going to do for the rest of my time on this earth. There was the idea of being a mom one day, quality of life and her creative side that desperately needed attention. These factors began to play on her mind and inevitably her decision making.

2020 has shown us that we’re a little bit more fragile than we realised. But the reality is we are always going to have to try new things and put it out there so we might as well start getting good at that now.
