Mom Launches Business To Save Her Daughter From Bullies; It’s Now Worth $65 Million

Julie Deane's daughter faced bullies at school. That inspired her to start a company so she could pay for private school. That is how the Cambridge Satchel company was born.

No one thinks bullies are a good thing.

Though, just like other circumstances that you would never pick to happen to you or your child, that awful situation can get turned inside out to create something remarkable.

That’s what happened with Julie Deane.

She was so upset when bullies targeted her daughter at school in England.

She instantly wanted to pull her kid and put her in a private school.

But how to pay for it?

That’s how the Cambridge Satchel Company was born.

Julie tells her story brilliantly to CNBC.

There are so many other great twists in Julie Deane’s story.

How she found her first supplier, how she taught herself to code, how she broke into New York’s fashion week when she couldn’t afford a plane ticket to go herself.

You can find all those scoops on CNBC’s story page.
