    Brie founded Snag Tights in 2017 after experiencing first hand the issues with the hosiery market. Tights are designed for a specific body type and you either fitted into that description or you were bound to wear uncomfortable garments. Solving that problem catapulted Snag Tights from 0 to £2.2 millions in sales in the first 2 years trading.. Before Snag Tights Brie co-founded and was CEO of a Facebook advertising agency called ForceTen Digital that at its peak employed 6 people before folding right after the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Her journey is a bumpy road and her honest recount offers a lot of insights for people wanting to improve their businesses.
