Apr 1, 2021 | Episodes

Cost of Goods Sold is about why the products that make a difference are made. And it’s coming April 2021.

Hosted by Jennifer Myers Chua

Hello Everyone and welcome.  It’s Jennifer Myers Chua – your host of the podcast “Cost of Goods Sold.” I’m the CCO and co-founder of a boutique import and distribution company. I’ve spent years curating a collection of thoughtfully designed goods as I built Hip Mommies into a seven-figure business – based on values. For the past few months, I’ve been working on a new project, meeting with some remarkable entrepreneurs.

Cost of Goods Sold is about why the products that make a difference are made. It’s conversations with thoughtful designers and responsible creators who are building for-profit companies that create positive social and environmental change.

You’ll meet intentional entrepreneurs like Rebecca Saha who repurposes all those tiny plastic toys you keep stepping on by upcycling them into educational kits.

And Lisa Nguyen who shares how manufacturing her adorable and 100% recyclable toddler shoes is less expensive when done in small batches domestically – without outsourcing to China.

And curators like Kimberlee West who has built an eCommerce brand based on mindful representation – to help diversify your child’s playroom.

You’ll hear from innovators about topics like sustainability, product design, recycled and biodegradable materials, and upcycling. We’ll talk about living wages and fair-trade. And learn from owners of carefully-curated retail shops, inclusive brands, and brands built on giving back. We also go into the realities of the processes and the pitfalls. The costs of creating a purposeful business. To family life, mental health, the planet, and the people around us.

If you want to use your business, or purchasing choices to cause a change you’d like to see in the world – join me! I can’t wait to get started. Cost of Goods Sold premieres in April 2021. Follow us on  Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. We’ll learn how to do better together.
