7 Questions with Our Team

7 Questions with Our Team

Hey y’all! Brittany here. If you know me, follow us on social media and/or listen to our podcast Fridays with Flea Style, you know how obsessed I am with my team.

I love every single person I work with from the bottom of my boots. They make me smile (and sometimes ugly cry). They make my #worklife a total pleasure. And they inspire me to be a better boss and business owner every single day.

I wanted to highlight them here and let you get to know them a little bit better. From our New Year’s resolutions to go-to holiday look and music crushes, learn a little bit about these incredible women below.

Happy holidays from all of us at Flea Style!
