Practicing gratitude is something that we could all benefit from doing a little more often; however, in the hustle and bustle of life, it can be challenging to take a moment to sit down and reflect on the good things. In the spirit of Thanksgiving week, I asked seven women who I look up to – both for their business acumen and their lovely spirits – to share what they are grateful for at this moment in their lives.
I’m the founder of Tallulah PR, a boutique music publicity firm based in New York City. We help artists tell their stories through PR campaigns that think outside the box by utilizing a combination of traditional press, digital media, and brand partnerships.
This year I am thankful for the incredible team of women who work with me to help Tallulah PR be the best it can be. I’m thankful for my amazing roster of clients who continue to produce some of the best music out there. I’m thankful for the flexibility and freedom that running my own business allows. I’m thankful to do what I love.
At Moonstruck CLE Vintage we sell choice vintage fashion and home decor to lift your spirits and soothe your nostalgic soul. We believe circular reuse of goods helps the environment and can be pretty damn fun!
I’m grateful I can freely pursue a path that’s not traditional in a place that’s quirky and unpredictable. I value my freedom and my journey. But mostly I’m grateful that each day is a new beginning.
Free Period Press makes tools for grounded productivity and self-care. We’re here to help you slow down, unplug, and focus on what’s most important to you.
I’m so thankful for community— in all of the different forms it takes. Customers who support us, shops that carry our line, designers who lend their creative talents, friends and family who encourage me… none of what I do would be possible if any one of those pieces were missing! Also, I’m so thankful for public libraries! I’ve gotten so many books and audiobooks from the library that have taught me so much about business— FOR FREE! It still blows my mind that libraries are a thing.
Hello, my name is Anne, and I am the owner and designer at Océanne. We are a handmade jewelry brand and launched a small apparel line 2 years ago. Our studio and storefront is located in Gordon square, in Cleveland OH.
I started Océanne after I was experiencing a HUGE culture shock and longing to meet and connect with people. I am so grateful to now, be part of this amazing creative community in Cleveland. I am also really grateful for my family and my team! These past few months have been so hectic with expanding the store, welcoming new team members, and traveling. I could not have done it without the support of my family and team. It might sound cliché but we are better together!!
Hello! My name is Stephanie Paynter. I am a metalsmith, jewelry designer, and mother of three. In addition to my own company, Stephanie Lee Paynter, I also make jewelry and am the Marketing Manager at Oceanne in Cleveland.
My family and I moved to Ohio from Tucson, Arizona in 2016. After a rough go the first three years, we decided to move to Lakewood this summer. In just a few months, this community has become home. This “home” doesn’t just include our actual house and being near family; it’s also the incredible friends I’ve made in the Akron and Cleveland areas who’ve embraced me and my work and made me feel welcome. I have been searching for this feeling for a very long time and have finally found it. I feel very lucky and incredibly thankful.
I provide health with taste and love. I own a non-GMO organic cafe and cold-pressed juice line.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to not only nourish people’s bodies but their souls. Losing my father 22 years ago I decided to change my concept to healthy cuisine to create a healthy legacy for him. To extend the lives of others loved ones so they don’t experience the pain and loss of loved ones sooner than needed. When his heart stopped beating a piece of mine died too.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Cleveland, Ohio. I am a firm believer that a wedding day is just as much about your love for one another as it is about the people that you’ve chosen to celebrate with. It’s the sentimental moments, both grand and intimate, that you’ll hold most dear for years to come – and those moments were meant to be preserved far beyond one day.
I am incredibly thankful and grateful for my little family. This is one of the most chaotic seasons of life for my husband and I but we have made an effort to be solid teammates. Grateful doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel to have my loved ones, my health, the ability to live outside the bounds of a normal 9-5 career and the privilege to pursue my passions.
Thank you ladies for sharing with us what you are grateful for this season!
Now it is your turn! What are you thankful for?
