Marissa Carter : Behind the smile

Topics covered : Childhood, starting a business/brand, taking chances, creating, success, failure, conflict, motherhood, gardening.

In this episode I speak to trailblazing entrepreneur Marissa Carter.

Marissa lives in Dublin with her husband Ronan and their kids; Charlie who’s 10 and Isabelle who’s 7 and their much loved dog Cherry.

Her brand ‘Cocoa Brown’ was born 10 years ago this month and like all successful entrepreneurs she’s not afraid of taking chances.

The past few years have been particularly challenging for her professionally and this is her first interview in 3 years.

She tells us about her upbringing and how she became the business woman she is today, the women who helped her along the way, meeting Kim Kardashian and conflict.

She’s a homebird who loves gardening and she’s also a great laugh to be around.

I hope you enjoy our conversation.
