Your Body Is Your Business

Understanding that your body is a part of your business…though most only take it seriously when things go wrong.

[ENCORE] ‘Showpo’…The story of the global fashion empire with Jane Lu

Jane Lu, Showpo’s founder, tells a funny story about her entrepreneurial journey.

You can’t argue with her determination to make her story a success.

With a revenue of over $85 million in 2019, the company set a new high in 2019. That’s a $75 million rise since I did this interview in 2017 (wow, growth on steroids!).

And her goal is to reach $100 million in annual revenue by 2020. About 40% of that revenue now comes from overseas sales.

ABOUT JANE LU

Jane is the Founder and CEO of the online fashion store Showpo.

Showpo is focus is on being on-trend, affordable and providing exceptional customer service and fast delivery. Jane previously worked in corporate finance, but after returning from overseas travels, couldn’t adjust back to cubicle life and quit her job to start her own business.

Her first business failed, however, it was a stepping stone to building Showpo to where it is today. What started off with a laptop and 2 shelves of clothing in her parents’ garage in September 2010, through being disruptive in the retail and social media space has made Showpo now a well-known and loved clothing store for girls around the world.

Jane has also recently co-founded a business group encouraging and supporting female entrepreneurship. With the cheeky name “Like-Minded Bitches Drinking Wine” this group has now 147.5K  fans on facebook and hosts monthly free events to promote women in business.

Q: How does using controversial language affect a personal brand on social media?

Today we talk about the importance of ‘personality’ behind the brand.

Today’s question can be read below:

Hello Annette,
It’s always great to watch your sessions and as always, I love the energy. It’s guaranteed to pick me up every single time!

Question: How does using or promoting controversial content on social media especially LinkedIn impact your personal brand?

Example: I seem to have better traction on videos when I use the word Bullsh!t?

I am curious about your thoughts on this and if you would recommend having more candid conversation style video content on LinkedIn?

Enjoy xx
