Although I’ve only been here 3 1⁄2 years, Houston has fully embraced me and welcomed me as their own. I stay pretty busy and booked for shows!
The greater Houston area has a very unique market mix. There is a “support local” attitude with a global influence. We as Houstonians find working with different cultures and ideas very palatable. We all live harmoniously amongst each other and that harmony is instrumental in getting me to where I am now.
Houston Community is tight-knit and so supportive! Most of my business has come from word of mouth and referrals. I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful and supportive city.
Houston is the most diverse place I’ve ever lived, the well of culture here is very deep. I have been able to pull inspiration from street styles, moms from school and church, and really cultivate looks that are different from what you may see on other websites. So many nations are represented in Houston, simply taking a look around helps me keep the site fresh and original.
I have been introduced to some of the most amazing people in Houston through this crazy adventure. There have been countless people that have seen me as a new company, and wanted to help, connecting me to others who could utilize my product. A good friend introduced me to a sweet person at Bike Barn, who then introduced me to another awesome person at the Houstonian. It’s heartwarming to feel the power of women helping other women.
Houston’s neighborhood community feels like home to me now. I go out and love bumping into people that I’ve met through networking or who follow my blog. It sincerely makes me want to cry happy tears when I think it’s almost been 9 years of living in a new country. I’m so grateful for the diverse and amazing friendships I’ve made in this city and for the continuous support I get from fellow people in the industry.
