Interview with Lena Eschel (@lenaeschel)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always been a free spirit, you know, and fashion has been a great way to explore and express myself in a very neat way. I’ve also been a traveling enthusiast since forever. So, I thought, why not share my journey with the rest of the world?
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
If you want to get started on something, make sure it’s something you love and are passionate about, and don’t give up on it. A project like that will never make you feel like you’re working.
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My family and friends. They are my haven, and I love them for always supporting me. Also, my cat, Tokyo. He is the best cat anyone could ever ask for.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
All of us desire to travel and explore the different traditions and cultures of the world, but not everyone has the time or money to fulfill that dream. I hope by sharing my journey, I can quench that desire at least a little bit.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.” I think if I never gave up on my passion for traveling, I won’t be myself anymore, you know? It’s such an integral part of who I am, and ever since I realized that, I think I’ve learned to appreciate my experiences even more.
