05: Coco & Breezy – How to Build a Brand Through Social Media
“There are no rules, we create our own rules and our own stories” -@cocoandbreezy
Coco and Breezy are my favorite twins in the world. We met on a photo shoot a couple years back when the stylist pulled their glasses for the shoot and they delivered them in person. Contrary to their edgy look, they are the sweetest girls. They have an amazing mentality that you’ll get to hear about on the podcast. They’ve created a great brand at such a young age. Coco & Breezy are talented eyewear designers, smart business women, and huge inspirations!
