TIP 6: Zara Lim – Ballet Dancer to Lawyer to Creative Business Owner

Making multiple career changes

In this episode, I chat to Zara Lim, a ballet dancer turned lawyer turned Creative Business Owner. I initially met Zara through Instagram after seeing sponsored post from her brand Edward Kwan. After reaching out and chatting, we’ve now become Insta-friends.

Having gotten to know Zara over these last few months has been really rewarding. She is an incredibly intelligent person and I am always amazed at how much she has achieved as a one woman operation. After COVID-19 hit Australia, Zara has made a pivot towards selling Liberty London fabric face masks and they’ve really taken off.

If having one business wasn’t enough, she has also started her other side business Gracie Kwan candy boxes. If you want to check out her products the links are listed below.
