Erica Bianchini is the co-founder and Creative Director at Ecksand, a sustainable fine jewelry brand born in Montreal that’s making that one thing you will never dispose of and that is better for the planet and people. At the age of 23, after meeting her now-husband, Erica realized that there was something missing from the fine jewelry industry: she couldn’t find anything with the quality and prices she was looking for. During her undergraduate studies at McGill University, she took a leap and gave it her all to start her brand, no matter how many people told her that her idea would never work.

It’s our anniversary! It’s our 2 year anniversary! With well over 100 episodes out, I wanted to celebrate this milestone with the Faith Walker community because without you all engaging there would be no space for the show to thrive in. With the help of Karleana Waugh of Mini K Creations, we were able to pull off an impactful virtual event CELEBRATION called RESILIENCE IS MY SUPERPOWER where each guest received a physical copy of the A Walk In My Stilettos Gratitude Journal.   This episode features past guests Vivian Kaye, Jamisa McIvor & Kim Fitzpatrick. They have come even further since they were last on the show and share their inspiring stories of RESILIENCE. Authenticity is their SuperPower. Vulnerability is their SuperPower. Resilience is their SuperPower. Go over to social media and share what's your SuperPower and tag us so we can share!   Stay connected with us online: Facebook- http://bit.ly/2CkjhqV Instagram- http://bit.ly/2OszRfs Twitter- http://bit.ly/2RU9tcz Youtube- http://bit.ly/MakiniSmithYoutube LinkedIn- http://bit.ly/2IZZZIm Website- http://bit.ly/2PvRRSu Books- http://bit.ly/MakiniSmith Subscribe to our newsletter if you love the value and free stuff! http://bit.ly/2AVKNJM Send feedback/questions to info@awalkinmystilettos.com Submit guest suggestions HERE info@awalkinmystilettos.com
