{Masterclass} with Ali Brown ~ TODAY!

My mentor, Ali Brown, who I have had the honor of working with over the past 2 years, is holding a {FREE} marketing masterclass TODAY!

A couple of weeks ago, while in Los Angeles meeting with Ali, she shared some sneek peaks at information she will share on this call. Trust me, it is GOOD. And completely do-able. And most of what she will teach you can do for FREE.

Ali will share techniques and tips that she and her team are actually using. In fact, they have been testing, tweaking and tracking them over the past year. So her teachings are backed by real data.

Sign up for the call LIVE TODAY, or for a replay time. You will not want to miss out on this generous teaching. I’ll be there. Will you??

Launched :: Jackie Hall

LaunchHER Says :: As jewelry lovers, we see a lot of baubles & bling every day. After awhile, it takes something special to catch our eyes. Enter, Jackie Sparkles Jewelry! We are dying to pair the spike bracelet with our summer florals — adding just a touch of edge to the feminine and sweet looks we are living in right now.

In HER Words :: Jackie Sparkles Jewelry started as a hobby. In 2011 I moved from a small town of 9,000 people in Minnesota to Long Island, NY. Talk about culture shock! Struggling to make friends in a new place, I realized that I not only enjoyed designing jewelry, I was good at it! All of my pieces are handmade and sold online or at jewelry parties and I’ve recently started doing customized pieces for prom and other occasions.  While I’m still operating on a small scale, I’ve taken my passion and turned it into something for others to enjoy. After all, everyone needs a little sparkle!!

{freshly launched} Women in Business :: Pushing Papers

Freshly Launched :: Pushing Papers

Launched :: Bee Eastman

LaunchHER Says :: After waiting anxiously for months, Pushing Papers is launched! Bee’s eye for stunning, heirloom-quality, letterpress is like none other. Her carefully curated selection will satisfy even the most particular paper lover.

In HER Words ::

A self-proclaimed memory gatherer, Bee draws upon her favorites of vacations, romance, holidays, and vintage memorabilia to design products that savor beautiful moments.

Turning over new opportunities is like opening a fresh notebook for Bee and she writes her own story on the pages of Pushing♥Papers. Fine stationery and the art of letter writing had been handed down from her mother who wrote a thank you note for every gift and every kindness she received. Each sentence, each thought, was a work of love.

It was time to build her own work of love – a stationery line that whispers of the past and speaks to the future.

Pushing♥Papers is more than quality cards and stationery, it’s taking a moment to live in the present, while being wrapped in the love of the past. It’s beautifully presented acts of gratitude and adoration. It’s the value of yesterday, the joy of today, the hope of tomorrow.

Freshly Launched :: Sweet Iced Tea

Launched :: Katie Harp

LaunchHER Says :: Katie’s design eye is spot-on for what is hot & now. Monogram + chevron + pops of color, on totes, notepads, invites, water bottles, ipad covers — we dare you to declare a favorite. You just may not be able to. And that’s okay, because each item gives back in it’s own way by being socially consciously sourced.

In HER Words :: I am a full-time college student, computer geek, and serial internet entrepreneur who founded Sweet Iced Tea last year to combine my passion for design and socially conscious products. We have a variety of invitations printed on recycled paper as well as other gifts like monogrammed tote bags made by mothers in Kenya to support their families and laptop sleeves made in San Francisco with a focus on sustainability.

In between classes (and occasionally during class…) I love designing graphics in Photoshop and coming up with new ideas. I also run a few other online startups and I hope to start more social ventures in the future, with an emphasis on eco-friendly and vegetarian things, and one
day be a woman on the Fortune 500.

Launched :: Dori Fitzpatrick

LaunchHER Says :: Hip crocheted hats & beanies up the coolness factor when worn year-round. We especially love the boys’ styles — a ‘tattoo’ or skull beanie? Yes, please!

In HER Words ::

I opened the virtual doors of Hunky Dori Boutique 2011 when I noticed a real lack of fun & hip baby hats while  pregnant with my second baby.  Being a graduate of FIT, I decided to go back to my design roots made a few.  They were a success & have lead to me doing hats for all ages – newborn to adult.  I hand crochet & design all my hats using super soft cottons, acrylics & do some hand stitched techniques on them as well.

I have since become a member of The Artisan Group & I’ve gifted hats to Bethenny Frankel & Denise Richard’s daughters, Alison Sweeney & daughter, & also had a hat appear on the CW’s The Vampire Diaries.  I am venturing into knitting & always expanding on my line!  I especially love custom orders.

Launched :: Misty Chapelle

LaunchHER Says :: Misty’s creations are full of energy. The patina and unique combinations in her jewelry pieces reflect her Cherokee heritage in a modern, sophisticated way. Give last year’s maxi dress new life with a statement piece from Soulful-Lee Yours.

In HER Words :: Hello! My name is Misty Chappelle and I own Soulful-Lee Yours Handcrafted Jewelry. Jewelry design is literally in my DNA- my grandmother Thursa, who is part Cherokee Indian, spent a lot of her free time spinning webs of dream catchers and intricate beading while telling stories of our ancestors. I incorporated her passion for our heritage with my passion for fashion and the unexpected and Soulful-Lee Yours was born.

I am a mother of 4 boys and a full-time preschool teacher, but you will always find me, in my free time, hunched over my jewelry table or devouring the latest fashion blogs and magazines seeking inspiration. I truly believe nothing makes a woman feel more together than the right piece of jewelry, and it is that belief that fuels my desire to stay on trend and provide my customers with fresh and exciting pieces!
I love what I do and hope to one day make my unique and individual, one of a kind pieces full time! I hope you can feel the love and passion that was put into every piece the team at Soulful-lee yours creates. I am lucky enough to have a very creative team, including my closest friends and sister- we love coming up with new and innovative pieces and we hope that translates in our art! Enjoy

Our headbands are nonslip, moisture wicking, antimicrobial, machine washable, and customizable; perfect for sports teams, schools, and businesses.
