Ep 169 – Finding A Sheet-Sized Gap In The Market

Ep 169 - Finding A Sheet-Sized Gap In The Market

From being a TAFE drop-out to traveling across the world, Hayley Worley has had a unique path to entrepreneurial success. 

It was after an unpleasant experience in a department store, that the former fashion designer saw a sheet-sized gap in the market. Now, Hayley is the Founder of The Sheet Society, a Melbourne-based brand that is making sleeping fun again. 

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Hayley shares how the jobs she had as a young adult and teen gave her the tools to be a leader, why she got clear on risk tolerance and how she found the courage to just get stuck in and give it a go. 

Hayley Worley:

For most women in business, the ever-looming biological clock can feel like an added weight on our shoulders. How will we run our business? Will the wheels come off if we take a step back? 

These were questions that Hayley Worley, Founder of bedding brand, The Sheet Society, also asked. 

But when she fell pregnant right as her business was taking off, Hayley used it as motivation to push herself even further. It turns out that the wheels didn’t fall off and after maternity leave, Hayley came back to a full-blown small business rather than a startup. In fact, The Sheet Society became a multi-million dollar company in just four years.

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, the entrepreneur shares how her maternity leave and her children give her more passion and drive for her business.
