EP 49: Building A Brand With A Bigger Purpose With Em Sexton, Founder of The Flourish Market


In this weeks episode I chat with Emily Sexton, founder of The Flourish Market which is located here in Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. We chat about her journey from working in Corporate America to her desire to help women in underprivileged countries, how The Flourish Market went from idea to mobile fashion truck to a now beautiful brick and mortar store, and how she has been able to get her audience and customers excited about her mission in a world full of quick fashion.


Through her travels with her corporate career, Em had the opportunity to meet women from all over the world who sold their goods to help care for their families. After seeing a fashion truck on Pinterest, Em got the idea to launch The Flourish Market as a way to provide makers and artisans from vulnerable communities with jobs and fair wages.


Knowing that she needed to put more of her time into growing the business, Em decided to leave her career to fully pursue The Flourish Market and transition it from fashion truck to a brick and mortar.

i want people to think about what you are called to leave behind on this earth. That’s impact and that’s purposeful.
