Now You Can Stay True to Yourself While Growing with Oberon Design

Oberon Design was born at a time before technology was what it is today. Neither social media or Ecommerce existed.

In this episode, we talked to Oberon Vice-President, Becca Smith, who passionately shares their story and says “There’s life beyond your phone”. Becca – a cancer survivor – tells us how they’ve grown their handmade leather goods business, where they started promoting their goods at faires before getting their first website build in 2000. But she says: “We’ve made a good a living, but it’s never been about making a lot of money.”

Tune in as we speak about being unique, making things that are valuable and how customers rely on businesses to be honest.
