What if you could turn your hobby into a million-dollar business? Victoria Wiek was on the corporate track when she realized that 16-hour workdays would keep her from spending time with people she loved. So, she got clear on what the American dream meant to her and took the leap of faith to become an entrepreneur.
Victoria and her family immigrated to the United States with just $30, and since then, she has turned her passion for jewelry design into a $500M business. She has been featured on Shop HQ and the Home Shopping Network for the last 23 years, sharing her designs with millions of women around the world. Victoria is also the author of Million Dollar Hobbies, the soon-to-be-published book designed to help women turn their passions into profit.
On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Victoria joins Anjel to share the turning point when she carved out her own definition of the American dream and decided to build the Victoria Wiek Collection.
