What do you think is the biggest issue for women in the workplace?
Two words; self-doubt.
Lori Caden is the CEO of Los Angeles, CA based Belly Bandit. The company, created in 2008, revolutionized the maternity world by introducing the first ever post-partum compression wrap, the Belly Bandit. Lori has overseen the development of the Belly Bandit brand and the introduction of the Mother Tucker and BDA (before, during & after) clothing lines. Lori’s growth strategy and leadership has resulted in Belly Bandit products being sold in more than 1000 retailers nationwide and over 80 countries worldwide. Lori credits her success to hard work, her commitment to innovation and the support she receives from her two biggest fans, daughter Charlee and son Chase.
How has your life experience made you the leader you are today?
I grew up in a family of strong, independent, women. I am the middle of 3 girls so I was always looking for ways to stand out and be heard. I started a sticker trading club at age 8, began designing clothes and selling them to retail stores as a teen and opened Caden Concepts, my first company, at age 25. It has always been about challenging myself to make things happen and have people take notice.
