Last year, we put out the call for a few creatives to contribute to our community and receive a membership in return, and Shanna was one of the first to respond. "I'm Shanna (like banana) and I make photographs," she wrote, and I knew she'd fit right in. Shanna has charmed all of us here in the House with her bright energy, optimism, collaborative attitude and beautiful talent. Francesca recently captured all of that 'Green Goddess' spirit while learning more about her creativepreneur journey - here's a peek.
Small Biz Stories
We're not sure why it took so long, but we finally have an interior designer as a Housemate, and we couldn't be more happy that it is Gloria Sollecito. Positive, helpful, open, curious and creative, Glo has both been inspired by and inspiring to our community, which is the perfect combination. Here's a bit of her story and how she got started with her design business, Artful Kitchens.
We knew from the moment Sarah walked in the House that she'd be the perfect fit for our community. Upbeat, artistic, curious, enthusiastic, kind, and just so fun to be around, she's brought a ton of creative energy to the House and to the Cottage, where she has set up shop with both her ceramics and vintage clothing businesses. Here's a little bit about her and how she got her start.
For a year and a half, motivational speaker and business/personal coach Tiffany Lanier has been that perfect type of Housemate: present, involved yet independent, helpful and willing to contribute her gifts to lift up the community, and filled with all kinds of hustle. We like to see the (balanced) hustle, folks – it motivates us to do and be more.
Tomorrow, she’ll be kicking off her in-person version of The Morning Shift, a weekly group session held here at the House focused on helping you establish and nurture your own unique morning routines and rituals. We figured today was the perfect time to take a few moments to get to know Tiffany better and learn how she made her Shift.
Author, health/wellness coach, green lifestyle expert, healthy bartender, vegan cheese goddess: Jules Aron, like so many of our freelancing members, does so many things and does them so well. What stands out to me the most about Jules - besides her diverse creative talents and her beautiful inside & out presence - is her continual willingness and enthusiasm about collaborating with and supporting others, even when juggling a really demanding workload.
With two books under her belt and more in progress, and all the promotional work she's doing with the release of the latest, Vegan Cheese (including a book launch party right here at the house on August 5th!) she manages to make it all work. We recently stole a few moments from her day to have a drink, chat, and learn more about how Jules got her start.
