Walking in another person's shoes - What a gift! Apr 18, 2022

This was one of my favorite interviews that we have done to date. I loved it not only for Billy’s energy and fun story, but I loved how thought provoking his “why” for doing what he does is. That is to see a situation or life choice from a different perspective, to be able to...

Curiosity and Withholding Judgement Apr 11, 2022

This week we had the opportunity to speak with Billy Warden- and man was it a fascinating conversation. What I loved most was his journey. And it wasn’t specifically his journey that was amazing - but his personal growth along the way. 

I am the first one to admit that I have a hard...

Rediscovering your sense of self Apr 04, 2022

I love a conversation that makes you reflect on your past self, it allows you to see how far you have come and maybe provide some acceptance and, dare I say it, appreciation for all that you have been through. The good, the bad, the hard, and all the in betweens! When we were talking with Ryann...

Stepping into the Messy and Embracing who you are meant to be. Mar 28, 2022

I loved our conversation with Ryann - it was so refreshing and authentic. She said this quote above in the middle of our conversation and it just stuck with me. Mostly because I have been there! 

When we were building the Bradford - I was on kid duty, they were hungry, and I had to go to...

When pressure makes you a better business owner Mar 21, 2022

I feel this deeply. It is hard to imagine when we started out where we would be today. C and D was a hobby and a promise of a dream. It didn’t really have to make any money, it just needed to fuel our creativity and expose us to an industry that we hoped we  would one day be a part of....

Partnerships and self reflection Mar 07, 2022

I stand by these words. Being in a partnership has been one of the hardest parts of my life and one of the most rewarding. One of the things that makes it so hard is the fact that YOU (in my case I mean me) and whatever it is that you are going through, is a part of that deal. This is the case in...

Sisters in Business Feb 28, 2022

What a fun episode! It was SO nice to chat with not only another partnership but a sister duo as well - I think we could have chatted forever about the dynamics of business ownership with your sister. I loved the authenticity and realness that Marni and Willa brought to the conversation about the...

Your Identity is not your Function Feb 21, 2022

As a high achieving person - this concept of being identified as your function really hit home. I can’t think of a time I had a label that was not defined by what I did. I am a boss, a sister, a mother, a wife, a wedding planner, a venue owner, an employer, a speaker, a consultant, a...

The Power of Your Story Feb 14, 2022

I have always taken so much inspiration and motivation from hearing other people's stories - especially the hard, ugly parts that are difficult to talk about - because I think it is in these moments where the most growth and learning take place, not just for the storyteller, but for anyone who...

CEO of the Year and Leaving Toxic Culture Behind Feb 07, 2022

Company Culture! What a hot topic right now. People all over the world are leaving their jobs not because of pay or even because they hate it- but they are leaving because the culture is toxic. Their boss sucks, and they loathe going into work every day. 

It is such an interesting shift from...

Employees are People Too! Jan 31, 2022

What a force! It was so inspiring meeting Anne and talking about her journey to becoming the Triangle CEO of the year! She is such a visionary and principled person and I love how doing what you believe, even if it is not what everyone else is doing (or what makes sense to your accountant), leads...
