What’s your biggest accomplishment? My biggest accomplishment thus far is actually launching Jolie Bloom. I’ve been wanting to create and own an all natural beauty brand for years, but have always talked myself out of it. I finally found the confidence to do it and it feels amazing to have pushed through the fear. The response has been great, now I wonder what I was so scared of.

What’s your biggest accomplishment? My biggest accomplishment would have to be starting Mae B.

What’s your biggest accomplishment?
When my son was 4 months old I began my master’s program. I graduated 2 years later with an MBA in marketing.  But my biggest accomplishment isn’t the degree (although I am pretty proud of the little boy we’ve been raising!).  I’d say I’m most proud of the decision I made to walk away from some potentially lucrative offers in pursuit of creative entrepreneurship.  It was the more challenging route, and I still have moments when I doubt that I made the right choice, but with a little patience and a lot of faith, I know I will look back one day and say, “damn, that was the right move.”

What’s In Your Bag: Fifteen Media

WIYB Rebekah Epstein

1. Planner 2. Post Its 3. Chanel business card holder 4. Way too many pens 5. Laptop 6. A variety of lip glosses, chap stick and lip stick.

What’s your biggest accomplishment? My biggest accomplishment is being able to live life by my own rules. I get to decide how ambitious I want to be. For example, with my PR business, fifteen media, if I want to offer a new service to my clients, then I can go ahead and do that. I don’t have to ask anyone permission, and that feels very freeing.

What’s In Your Bag: Ink Meets Paper Press

WIYB Allison Nadeau of Ink Meets Paper

Clockwise from top left: 1) iPhone, 2) unlined Moleskine notebooks, 3) Muji pen, 4) mechanical pencil, 5) screen-printed zippered pouch by Charlie & the Fox (where the notebooks and pens are tucked into), 6) ponytail holders, 7) Burt’s Bees lip balm, 8) Baggu reusable bag, 9) Ink Meets Paper business cards and holder by Post, 10) exhibitor badge left over from the National Stationery Show, 11) wallet/clutch by Fossil

What’s your biggest accomplishment?

Definitely being able to run Ink Meets Paper full time with my husband Daniel. It hasn’t always been easy, and there are definitely long days and long nights, but it’s so rewarding. It’s neat to see how many people have had their days brightened by a handwritten note from a friend or family member, and I love how our cards have been able to play a part in that connection.

What’s your biggest accomplishment? It’s hard for me to say what my biggest accomplishment is, because I think everyone defines success in a different way.  For me, getting the opportunity to travel has always been something that’s been important to me, so getting to visit new places around the world always feels like a huge accomplishment.  I also consider myself very lucky to have started a business that I genuinely enjoy putting a lot of my time and effort into, so I would have to put that at the top of my list as well.  Many people would consider finishing my Masters Degree my greatest accomplishment (I am studying Public Health at Michigan State’s College of Human Medicine), so I guess it depends on who is asking!

What’s In Your Bag: Parima Studio

Rifle and Co Notebook, Elf Oil Blotting Sheets, Baggo Grocery Bag, Gold Pen, Tovicorrie Wallet, Advil, Portable Phone Charger, Hand Sanitizer, Sonia Kashuk Tinted Lip Chapstick, Pepper Spray (for safety).

What’s your biggest accomplishment? Biggest accomplishment so far, has to be closing my first business (web design), and taking the big scary leap to become an artist full time. I never thought it would be possible for me to work as a full time artist. It was unbelievably scary leaving a business that was doing very well to start a new one. Though I did do both for a little while, I felt like I couldn’t fully grow Parima if I was splitting my time. But now that I am in my second year, I am so glad I did. I am much less stressed, happier, and thoroughly enjoy every minute of it.
