Well, I have to say that over the past few months I have collected some pretty inspiring peers, but moreover, friends.

Santa Barbara has quite the thriving young entrepreneur community. All of us just trying to make little dreams and career endeavors come to fruition while keeping our integrity, inspiration and sane minds! Ive collected quite the group of magazine editors, wardrobe/editorial stylists, personal shoppers, photographers, women’s bloggers, buyers, managers, cowhide handbag designers and jewelry crafters. All of these women bringing a product that is well made, well managed and bridging true success. Now, I don’t want to get all “go women” because that’s overdone, and we all know we are awesome. I got the chance to bring some (not all pictured) of these ladies together and do a lifestyle shoot while also just getting together to network, give advice, share vendors, get visibility for all of our own product/businesses while also being girl friends and drinking champagne. The polo fields and Estefania Ochoa was nice enough to host us, and take our photos that will be used on various social media platforms for content. All to say, that things are happening here.  A new generation of women who will make waves in this community is pretty awe inspiring and here are a couple of them below. More to come!
