Keiotay Chalk and Tempestt King

Whether I was rolling dough in my grandma’s kitchen, helping make her infamous Natchitoches Meat Pies or standing over the stove stirring the roux until it’s the perfect brick color. I’ve always cooked with a smile on my face. Being able to grow up around so many family members that are Cooks/Chefs really help in molding me into what you see today. Read more>>

Gloria Juarez

I’m a huge believer in the law of attraction. Whatever you think, feel and say is what you call into existence. It hasn’t always been easy, but I’ve learned to focus on the positive things. When you feel gratitude, it is released into the universe and you get more of it in return. I believe that happiness is a choice, as is staying true to your faith. Read more>>

Matt Lofland

I moved to Houston in March of 2016 after I recently became unemployed. I had just transitioned into the fitness industry, and being from a very small town in Maryland I was seeking opportunities. After sending my resume out online, I was giving an opportunity to move to Houston and start a new career with Orangetheory. Read more>>

Tina Sabuco

As I started to implement all the wonderful things I had learned along the way, I was thrilled to see my students bloom and grow! I decided to dedicate my efforts to create a curriculum that tapped into the power of the expressive arts to ignite the joy in children, instead of stifling it – – and THIS was the birth of Arts Alive! Read more>>

Dunia Ruiz

The craving of becoming the best version of myself became more and more real the moment I was laid off late spring of 2015. God knew what he was doing, this was a wake-up call, at 23 years old, I was perplexed with the decision. I could finish community college or pursue a new career path, so I decided it was time for a change. Read more>>

Lalu’s Treasures is a waling evolution, a literal Glow Up. It started as Lajoy’s Closet, which was my vintage resale IG boutique, I carried handbags, scarves, shoes, sweaters, and more. As I begin my holistic/spiritual journey, I wanted my lifestyle to reflect my beliefs. Read more>>

Kendra Williams

I did more research and found that keto helped with all of my terrible symptoms. I lost weight, got pregnant (4 times) and my cycles were flourishing. In high school, I was told that I’d never had children, they were so wrong. I wrote a book about my experiences with keto, opened an office and here I am today, a successful keto coach. Read more>>

La Donna Finnels-Neal

I have been an entrepreneur all of my life, although it was a wandering path. I started making clothes at the age of six and selling them by the time I was 11. I taught myself to macrame and to knit and crochet. By the time I was 12, I was selling macrame plant holders and braiding hair on the weekends. Read more>>

Brandy Boulwen

I started out nine years ago with my business, Blessings by Brandy, LLC. My company let me have the opportunity to serve hundreds of Houstonians with my event planning/bakery skills. In August 2017, my biggest fear happened right before my eyes. Hurricane Harvey came and destroyed everything I worked hard for. It left my children and me homeless, and with little to no funds to start over. Read more>>

Kyle Luce

Being able to capture a moment in time with my photography and describe in great detail without saying a word is amazing to me, and with telling a story using cinematography and having creative control to tell others stories and bring them to life is a feeling I can never be thankful enough for. Read more>>
