STEPHANIE HALL: Not Afraid To Stand Up For What You Believe In, Growing A Sustainable Business, And Investing In Yourself As Capital

Stephanie Hall is an inspiration. She grew up in Holly Hill, SC and got her law degree by the time she was 23 years old. She has started multiple businesses and is raising 3 children. After 10 years in law, she started a successful event planning business, then started her current company, Estelle Colored Glass. Estelle Colored Glass is a luxury brand of hand-blown colored glass cake stands and stemware in a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. The Estelle Colored Glass collection is comprised of original commissioned pieces made by glass artisans in Poland at a glass making company with a rich 100-plus-year-old history. Estelle Colored Glass pieces are best described as “jewels for your table.” This glassware is absolutely stunning. Her belief is that closed mouths don’t get fed and when you can describe her with words like trailblazer, proactive, sustainable, disciplined, and goal-oriented, she is open and ready for every opportunity and adventure that comes her way. We hope you enjoy our conversation!

JULES & STACE: An Exciting Announcement!

This week it’s just Jules and Stace on the mic talking about the release of their new children’s book, Rescued By Rico. We tell the whole story of Rico, sharing some stories we haven’t shared before. We just launched our crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo, and would be absolutely delighted if you’d support us either by buying a book (or 5!) and/or sharing it with everyone you know who might enjoy a good children’s book. It’s been professionally illustrated by the insanely talented Tami Boyce, and it accomplishes 2 main purposes: 1) highlight the importance and specialness of rescue animals, and 2) help adults navigate the tough conversations about when a family pet passes over the “Rainbow Bridge”. Plus, 50% of all proceeds will go to support the 4 rescue organizations listed below. A win-win-win for all!!

MIA ROOKS & MELISSA HAWLEY: Being Competitive, Building A Business On Relationships And Trust, And Being A Problem Solver For What People Need

Melissa and Mia are a beautiful and an inspirational couple. They have and are building their real estate business, The Hawley-Rooks Team, on relationships and trust. In this episode, we talk about what it was like to pick up and move from Charleston to Nashville and basically start over only knowing a few people in the area. We discuss how Covid has affected all of life, and we talk through their unique perspective on just how important black lives really are. These two are a powerful force to be reckoned with as they raise their beautiful daughters, educate people on buying and selling homes, and build a real estate business that is making a big impact in the Nashville area. What an absolute treat to get an hour with them. We hope you enjoy our conversation!
