I can’t help myself.
I so want to support women out there doing something huge, using their talents, using their voice.
Having this blog does let me indulge in things near to my heart…
So, may I introduce to you (7) incredible women I’d love to support:
Erin Loechner, Design for Mankind
The lovely blogger/writer, Erin Loechner, has written a book! And it’s available on Amazon for pre-order. (It will be coming out January 2017.) I loved reading the book description, including this: “Through a series of steep climbs—her husband’s brain tumor, bankruptcy, family loss, and public criticism—Erin learns just how much strength it takes to surrender it all, and to veer right into grace.” Oh, I love this woman and her writing is always straight from the heart – I’m sure this book will be a must read. (The cover is beautiful, too. Spot on typography!)
Aubry Bennion, Hello Maypole
Aubry is a make-it-happen kind of woman and we were lucky enough to meet her because of the blog & retreats. She has THE COOLEST BUSINESS selling felt balls in loads of colors. I would be happy draping felt balls pretty much everywhere for holidays and parties. When we return to NY, we’ll have to buy all new Christmas decor (because we sold everything before moving). So…I see some felt balls in my future. (Also, her darling instagram feed is full of ideas.)
Zina Bennion, Mom’s Stuff
Zina is a powerhouse of creativity, generosity, community, feminism, and spirit. We met Zina in NYC once (because of the blog) and have been honored to stay connected with her ever since. She recently joined her mother, Lee, in a family business called Mom’s Stuff, where they sell the most glorious salve you could ever find. It’s all hand made, hand poured, all natural, and shared with lots of care. Cool branding, too. For years, Danny has used the salve literally every single day (to style his hair) – and I go nuts over the delicious woodsy, piney, manly scent. I also use it to soften my hands at night. And yes, we brought large jars of it with us to Ecuador. That says a lot. 🙂 Follow Mom’s Stuff here.
Kami Larsen, Cleanse Your Life
We met Kami at our retreat and we have loved watching her career online. She is giving her all as a health coach, essential oil consultant, and an aura personality consultant. She LOVES her clients and brings a lot of warmth and care to what she does. Her own family has transformed the way they eat and live (due to food intolerances, allergies, skin, and gut issues)- and she later became certified to be a health coach to teach others how to do the same. She sells an online healing program. She teaches free classes monthly. She sells essential oils. It would be worth it to follow her to see what she’s offering next.
Hilary Rushford, Dean Street Society
Hilary is a savvy entrepreneur we know in Brooklyn. We’ve connected with her at some conferences over the years as she was a blogger. Since then she’s created this insanely successful online course called, “Double Your Instagram Following.” She has seriously cracked the code with this online entrepreneur world and selling this course was huge for her. Her tips + tricks are helping so many to be financially successful on Instagram with their brands and businesses. She’s a delightful soul and a very good teacher. The class is available periodically, so follow her to get in on the next class.
Sara Owens, BK17 Bakery
Sara is a baker we met in Brooklyn as she once sold gorgeous sourdough loaves to our CSA. She just launched a recipe book for her breads called SOURDOUGH, which makes me delighted as I want all her secrets. Here’s what she does: “Baking with whole and sprouted grains, making the most of the seasonal harvest, and healing the body through naturally fermented food.” Sounds up my alley, I’ll tell you that. For this gluten free gal, I’ve actually had the treat of indulging in her bread (!) Her fermentation process is so intense that the gluten is actually broken down. (Have you heard of this?) She is also one of the kindest, most lovely women you’d ever meet, she coincidentally does sabbaticals in Ecuador, hosts bread making workshops in Brooklyn and nationwide, and shares her love of sourdough with anyone interested. No doubt I’ll be hunting down her loaves when we return to B-town.
Laurie White, Great Artist Program
Danny’s own sister has the most creative business and Youtube channel. She’s a die hard, passion-filled art teacher for kids and she now sells her K-6 volunteer-based art program to PTAs in 150 schools. Get more info. if you’d like the program in your own school. AND…check out her Youtube channel where she teaches free drawing classes. Your kids will LOVE it! Hello summer!!!
