"Come what may." I do my best to take things as they come, rise to a challenge and come out the other side.
Keep saying yes!
I was raised in a conservative, Catholic home. I am what they call the black sheep of the family.
PETA and Sundance Institute--I love animals and independent cinema! I continue to support the organizations I've worked for through membership and participation in their events. I have been vegetarian/vegan for over half my life--18 years! I also love barre class, I think that is a hobby? Amateur photographer--husband is the professional.
Specifically, I would like to be booking one party every weekend, and grow my Instagram following to 10K by September, my 1-year anniversary. Generally, I would love to make more connections with women in my industry and attract partnership opportunities with brands.
The death of a child. Morbid I know, but it is my greatest fear in life.
The "business" side of things, like accounting, etc.
You don't have to stay at a corporate job in order to be successful. Build something for yourself now so that you have control over your career when it is time to start a family.
Making "mom friends" was harder than I could have imagined. Very few of my pre-parenthood/longtime friends have children, so it was difficult to experience a lot of firsts on my own. I have been so fortunate to have since made some lovely connections with the mothers in my neighborhood, Silver Lake, and with families at my son's preschool, Camelot. I would love to meet even more moms, particularly those who are also small-business owners, which is why heymama is so appealing. I was SO thrilled to befriend Rachel of Bonjour Fete, and she and I have collaborated many times over in just a few short months. It is nice to be supported and support others who simply understand where you're coming from, both from a personal and professional standpoint.
