We had the good fortune of connecting with Julia Daviy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Julia, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my achievements and the success of my brand is my drive, determination, and love for knowledge. My purpose, my “why,” is the driving force that helps to find the energy to move forward, dream about impossible things, and implement them step after step. Success does not come overnight; you need to obtain the best skills and knowledge in what you do and be persistent.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
When I started to work in the USA, I decided to pursue my old dream—not just to do business in cleantech but also to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. The most challenging task was to find truly sustainable clothes and accessories. That all started as a hobby. I launched a brand of organic activewear but realized that organic fabric is just a tiny part of the solution. The fashion industry needs a more advanced technological solution to be able to radically minimize its impact.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
We like to take a bike ride to Key Biscayne, Crendon Park, and its Peacock Shelter, and we’ve explored Virginia Key park and beach and Biscayne National Park. I also recommend staying in Brickell and enjoying the downtown area. My favorites here are the street cafes next to W Hotel, where you can buy tasty street food and enjoy your walk along the bay and coast. Take a short but spectacular walk around the Brickell Key, which is just minutes away from here. Also, I love the bridge connecting Brickell and the downtown area. I recommend the walk along the Miami River.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Absolutely! My partner Vitaliy Daviy—entrepreneur, investor, and a personality with a vision beyond his time. Besides being an internationally recognized expert in the field of renewable energy and new energy tech, he has deep knowledge in space engineering; he loves drone piloting and AI. Among books, I would definitely name Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harrari, Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel and My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla.
