While researching the For The Love of Christmas Gift-Giving Series and exploring opportunities to make gifts and connect with our inner creatives; we began discovering some inspiring start-ups. Where past-times and hobbies have evolved to become broader in scope – creating life-changing career moments and where founders have launched new or additional careers. Here, we interview Rachel McTavish, founder and owner of McTavish Collection. She started her flourishing home business in 2008, and her story is an inspiration to anyone looking to build a portfolio career.
With an already successful and high-profile career as a broadcast journalist, Rachel has managed to launch and build an online costume jewellery and gift boutique with curated collections to suit all looks – offered within really affordable price ranges.
