WHEN DID YOU START YOUR COMPANY?

9 years ago


WHAT WAS THE BEST COCKTAIL YOU'VE EVER HAD AND WHERE WAS IT?

Juniper Gimlet at The Bar at The Vintage Arcadia


WHAT HAS BEEN THE HARDEST OBSTACLE YOU HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME WHEN STARTING YOUR BUSINESS?

Not having any background in business. Learning as I went and trying to stay true to who we were when copy cats popped up around us.



HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF QUITTING? WHAT DID YOU DO TO GET YOU BACK ON TRACK?

Everyday! I remind myself that I made this choice. It's not about current comforts (because there aren't any lol) but about a legacy for my kids and something bigger than me.


WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO LISTEN TO IN YOUR CAR? (PODCASTS, MUSIC, AUDIOBOOKS, ETC.)

I love music. I could dance and listen to music all day long.


WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO? (CAN BE FAMOUS, FAMILY… OR FAMOUS FAMILY.)

My mom. She showed me that I could do anything and also to not be afraid to try and fail.


WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING?

Sleep... haha! At home movie nights with my family, and going to movies. When Justin and I were dating, we went to 3 movies a week! I just love them, oh and the popcorn! I also love taking baths, I would take 3 baths a day if could!


WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?

The community that has been built around all our businesses.


IF YOU COULD GIVE ANY ADVICE TO YOURSELF 10 YEARS AGO WHAT WOULD THAT BE?

Don't use credit cards! Thanks Dave Ramsey... Also, enjoy every moment of the struggle. I spent way to many years longing for whats next and I missed out in some of the beauty of the struggle.
