“I started as an Audiologist turned stay-at-home mom.  My husband was a corporate lawyer for 20 years. When we were deciding what to do next, I jokingly said “I would be happy making donuts for the rest of my life” and my husband said “OK”.  So we bought a machine and tested donuts from our garage in 2014. We now have 4 locations with 3 franchisees on the way.” - Melissa Rudd

“Imagining more means constantly creating. If I had stopped with just one pie shop and never imagined I could handle more, I would be extremely bored right now. I imagined more when I said I would one day be a cookbook author. That’s a reality today because I imagined more for myself. Imagining more just feels good.” - Amanda Wilbanks

“I wish I knew a lot from the beginning but the most educational part of what we do is the journey from one point to the next. I’ve learned to have grace with myself and my decisions. I’ve learned (but not perfected) to not let fear of what other people will think of my ideas, my work, and how I execute take over. We’re all just learning as we go!” - Meg Towle Johnson

“Imagining more to me means opening your mind to opportunities when they are put in your path and saying “yes” to the universe. I’m a planner and like to map out the future in advance, but by opening my eyes to what is in the moment has led to so many opportunities I could have never dreamed of.” - Becca Cunningham

“When we've pushed ourselves to take something a step further than what we thought we could. People are naturally lazy, so sometimes it’s easier to think inside the box and make that commercial set in a living room with a mom and a dad and baby and blah blah blah - but it’s when we dream big + commit is where success lies. Even if you have zero idea how to make it happen - dreaming big is where it starts.” - Todd + Loren

“Imagining more means taking a dream and making it become reality. It’s seeing the potential in yourself and an opportunity and making something out of it. For me it meant - taking something that I love to do as a hobby and making it into a business that can grow and become so much more than just Barb and I! Now we get to create wedding films for couples every weekend and amplify powerful love stories that can be watched forever.” - Emily Armistead

“Imagining more means never settling and never losing site of the 'big picture.' In the grind of every day life it can get overwhelming at times, but when I step back, it's so amazing to see how far I've come. It also means continuing to grow and evolve - my blog and influence has changed a lot over the years, and I'm always thinking about what my next move is.” - Morgan Bullard

“I think it means to be creative and ambitious. My time with TCF, we never stopped growing in both our company culture but also our ideas. We’re consistently imagining of new ideas and new ways we can do better. I think this helps keep us grounded even if we’re making small impacts here and there throughout the city, we’re still thinking on how to do better.” - Tammy Huynh

National Clean Off Your Desk Day

National Clean Off Your Desk Day

With the Marie Kondo series on Netflix, tidying up is definitely trending right now. Today is National Clean Off Your Desk Day and we are inspired to take a look at our own workspaces to see how we can declutter. Whether you’re naturally a more neat or messy person, there’s no argument that a minimalist workspace will increase your focus and productivity. While we may not be hugging our staplers and wondering whether they “spark joy” like Marie Kondo recommends, this is a good time of year to refresh your work environment to ensure it’s a place that fosters creativity and allows you to get the job done.

Creative Job Titles

It’s becoming more and more common to see words like “Guru” and “Ninja” in a job title these days. No doubt geared towards the out of the box generations, these creative job titles are designed to attract the younger workforce.

“Doing things differently is scary, not just for us as entrepreneurs but for schools and for teachers. And there's a lot of things that they have to do and are expected to do. And that's just the reality. So sort of taking this leap of faith and trying to find a way to do something different is not easy. And I'll say to the entrepreneurs out there, ‘Stick with it.’”
