Episode #60: Entrepreneurial Journey of Two Sisters: Lauren Dudley Stephens & Kaki Dudley McGrath (Part II)
Hi everyone! I am super excited to share my second podcast interview with the amazing sister-duo Lauren Dudley Stephens and Kaki Dudley McGrath, the two co-founders of Dudley Stephens. They launched the company with their iconic flagship Cobble Hill Turtleneck Fleece in 2015 which immediately had success because they are comfortable, timelessly stylish, eco-friendly, durable, and last upon wear. They have had so much success with their flagship fleeces that they now have expanded the business tremendously by including dresses, pants, outerwear products for men and children and so much more.
Throughout our interview, they take us on their incredible journey over the past 5+ years. They touch on the high points, such as partnering up with Gwyneth Paltrow’s company Goop, being featured in Oprah Magazine, their partnership with Tuckernuck and so many other major milestones.
As always, they also are incredibly humble and down-to-earth and not afraid to share their setbacks, such as how they navigated the impacts of COVID-19. I hope you all enjoy my conversation with these amazing sisters as much as I did!
Fast forward almost 10 years, he has had a remarkable journey. Johnno tells us about both his setbacks and awesome comebacks, such as his role on Disney’s hit show Raven’s Home, getting called out to two Saturday Night Live auditions, and upcoming Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes this fall! Not to mention, Johnno is also the most incredible impersonator and has been featured on Good Day LA (check out his TikTok account where he has 375K followers and nails impersonations of well-known celebrities such as Vince Vaughan, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Hanks, and many more). I’m so excited to continue to watch Johnno kill it in LA!
