Once I finished school I decided I wanted to leave Austin and start my dream in Houston. I worked at a few other restaurants and ultimately knew I hated restaurant life and not being able to create my own dishes wasn’t it for me. I’ve been here for about five years and have grown from just offering a meal prep service to now catering weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, etc. I used to sell plates on Friday’s. Read more>>

I am a firm believer in God allowing things to happen at the right time and everything flows accordingly. Support is the foundation of any venture and without the support of our family, friends, and each other I don’t know where would be now. Read more>>

I am the owner and creator of Vivacious Vanity located in Spring, TX! Our business started out back in December 2016 with me expressing to my boyfriend that I wanted a Hollywood vanity makeup mirror from another vanity mirror company (even though I didn’t wear too much makeup at the time). I thought I would never be able to afford one because the prices were extremely expensive. Read more>>

Yall owning a business is hard – the ups and downs of the finances- not knowing when the next paycheck will come and the hours that you put into it all! No one tells you in the classes that hey there will be seasons you really don’t sleep and when you go on vacation your phone doesn’t stop, but YALL I am so thankful for all those things as they have gotten me to where I am today. Read more>>

Everything being fully custom allowed everyone to not only feel comfortable but beautiful in what they wore. I truly believe design is fun and clothes should demonstrate our unique personalities and I hope this is reflected in our designs. We cater to all sizes and styles and have expanded to include screen printing, DTG printing, embroidery and more. Read more>>

My ultimate goal is to open a school solely focus on teaching people of all ages how to play drums. For me, drums are an outlet for me to express whatever I may be feeling and release it in a creative way. I would rather beat on some drums versus doing something stupid that I’ll end up regretting the rest of my life. Read more>>

I pride myself in specializing in helping small businesses by providing them the same level of graphic and web design as any other high end or Fortune 500 company. Everyone deserves that type of quality and care. I have been doing just that for that last 18+ years. Read more>>

My film roots date way back to a time I can barely remember, meaning young. Very young. I’ve always been fascinated by the world of filmmaking and the cinematic arts. As a kid, I would project myself into these imaginary worlds and live vicariously through the people on screen, dreaming of creating the same type of art someday. Read more>>

I started doing research and gathering all the information I could while I was on maternity leave. I even named the business after her, Callie. When my maternity leave ended, I decided not to back to work and instead focus on my little bakery. That was the best decision I have ever made, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me. Read more>>
