How does one reinvent themselves? What hurdles have to be overcome to take life in a new direction? How do you overcome those challenges? How do you ignore the naysayers? How do you push through the paralyzing fear?
In this series called “Second Chapters; How I Reinvented Myself In The Second Chapter Of My Life “ we are interviewing successful people who reinvented themselves in the second chapter in life, to share their stories and help empower others.
As a part of this interview series, I had the pleasure of interviewing Janet Wischnia.
Janet Wischnia is the founder of American Blossom Linens, a high-quality, sustainable, organic, ‘Made in the USA’ bedding company. Its origins spring from the family-owned textile manufacturing business she grew up in, ATD-American Company. Started in 1931 by her grandfather, the business was passed down to her father Jerome and uncles Spencer and Arnold, and she became president in 2003. Janet is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University (MBA).
