Bhavana Jain, a successful fashion designer and boutique owner of the BHAV boutique in Chicago, comes from a long line of healthcare workers.
She has been a clinical pharmacist for 15 years, but a few years into her career noticed that something was missing. She had felt the entrepreneurial spark and since she always loved arts, she decided to go back to school for fashion design. Following her intuition, she started a fashion line that now incorporates her own South Asian heritage into the design aesthetic.
Bhavana is on the show today to discuss her transition, going from burnout in a successful career in the medical field to following her passion and becoming an entrepreneur, her advice for future entrepreneurs making a career switch, how to start a fashion line and why you shouldn’t ignore your passion.
