As a part of my series about strong female leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lindsay Tia Reilly. Lindsay Tia is the 28-year-old self-made entreprenette, founder and driving force behind Bravery Brand and The Cue. Lindsay’s lifestyle brand started at the age of 14 from the ping pong table in her parents’ basement, where she used the sewing skills taught by her beloved grandmother to design, fabricate and distribute her own line of custom handbags. Pursuing a future in fashion, Lindsay earned a Fashion Merchandising degree from Lasell College and certification from the London College of Fashion, where she learned from several iconic designers. Upon her return from abroad, Lindsay used her sharp eye for fashion and European experiences to open The Cue, a “shop local” boutique just outside of Boston that delivers “confidence through clothing”. In May of 2019, Lindsay expanded her empire with the launch of Bravery Brand, a patriotic-inspired and self-expressive accessory line that spotlights the everyday bravery and courage inside everyone. A tenacious and talented trend setter, Lindsay is an award-winning business and community leader who has perfected the art of the pivot and empowers individuals from all over the country to tell their story and rock their bravery!
AUTHORITY MAGAZINE - "My biggest inspiration in business was my Grandpa. He inspired me to build a family, not just a team. In order to do that, you have to show the people that work for you that their contributions to your company are just as important as yours. They need to know that they are appreciated, respected, and part of the success. I’ve always led my team that way and they’ve given back to me tenfold, time after time. They believe in what I believe in, share in my dreams, and do more than I ask through the highs and lows. When you truly operate as a family, even bad times are good."
