Today I am sitting with clothing-brand entrepreneur, Ariana Agostini who is the founder and creator of Noe + Roe Boutique. Noe + Roe started as an online boutique during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 as it was a childhood dream for Ariana. IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:How Ariana started her business during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and her passion to have a clothing brand for women that will make them feel comfortable all the while still working on her corporate career. Ariana grew up in Puerto Rico where her grandfather taught her about hard work and how women should be able to stand up for themselves and do whatever they want.
