Behind Her Empire Podcast: Real Talk On Building Family And Business with Ashley Merrill, Founder of Lunya
Ashley Merrill, founder of Lunya, is a serial-entrepreneur and investor whose personal mission is to elevate and empower women and girls.
In 2012, Merrill started business school and in the same month realized she was pregnant with her first child. The news lit a now-or-never fire and pushed her to overcome her fears and launch the company she had been thinking about for years: Lunya, a luxury sleepwear line that provides confidence to the modern woman.
On this episode of the Behind Her Empire podcast, we have an honest conversation about why we need more successful women in business, what the journey was like starting a high-growth company while raising two young kids and the importance of partnership in marriage.
Ashley is also the chairwoman of Outdoor Voices, an activewear brand; founder of Lahgo, a men's luxury sleepwear line and her newest project, the Deep, a platform for curious people that aims to change the way we have conversations with each other.
