I say it often, but only because it's true: our members are the best asset we have in the House. We do our best to add diversity wherever we can, but, not surprisingly, due to our niche focus and the nature of attracting a like-minded community, that isn't always an easy task. Constantin and Alina, who joined us back in June, added so much to our member mix: another male perspective (we have a lot of women in the House!), experiences gained from another country and culture, and a professional background that was a great balance for our more visually creative group.
Constantin is launching InCorporate Now, an incorporation and business services company geared towards helping those outside the US establish businesses here, and Alina assists him while also working on an online fashion and accessories boutique, and very recently, a gourmet tea company. Together, they bring positivity, confidence, fresh ideas and a true hard-working entrepreneurial spirit into our community, and we're lucky to have them. Here's Constantin's take on the crazy journey that is small business ownership.
