If you’re familiar with home design, you’re probably well aware of Joanna Gaines. Not only did Joanna star on the HGTV show Fixer Upper with her husband Chip, but she’s the co-owner and co-founder of Magnolia.
Magnolia is a market that Joanna developed prior to having children.
“Chip and I run a few businesses here in Waco, Texas, but Magnolia Market holds a special place in my heart,” she says on her website. “This entire business idea was born completely out of a dream I didn’t know could ever come to life. It’s truly only because a fiercely faithful, brave, and bold husband pushed me to pursue my dream that it ever came to be.”
As far as women go, Joanna is genuinely inspirational.
Not many people are able to turn a passion into an enterprise. She’s so successful that she even has her own line of items available at Target.
Oddly enough, interior design wasn’t even Joanna’s first career interest. Instead, she majored in communications and hoped to work in television (which she did, but in an unexpected way). Her biggest job was working as an intern on 48 Hours. “As amazing as it was to live on West 57th Street and to work under a man as esteemed as Dan Rather, I quickly fell out of love with the news business while working that job,” Joanna said, according to The Netline.
Luckily, this career path was a perfect fit. Joanna has made a name for herself in the industry. It’s proof that anyone can change careers if they really want to. And it’s also proof that home design and decor are important. Especially these days, if you’ve been hunkered down in your home for a month. One small change can improve your mood and outlook. Luckily, Joanna’s projects and items are easy enough to find online.
