Garland’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageDallas is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool. Check out rising stars from Garland and surrounding areas below.

Brandan Boylan

I started the company because I fell in love with helping others achieve their dreams. Our slogan at Dallas Media Marketing is building dreams one business at a time. I’ve lived in Dallas my whole entire life & I’ve always believed in paying it forward. Read more>>

Morgan Schimmel

I can remember looking back 2 years ago fantasying of starting my own spa business. What services would I like to offer? What are my skills that could enhance other woman confidence? Or would I even be able to make my one-woman spa a successful and thriving business? Read more>>

Natalie Evans

My journey in therapy started many years before college or graduate school. In 1996, after my grandfather suffered a stroke, I had the opportunity to witness the effects that Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists had on my family. Read more>>

Russ Porter

My vision for providing a central location where multiple types of music lessons can be offered was a 25 year dream in the making. In my early professional years as a choir director at local churches, I noticed that most of the church sat mostly empty except for Wednesdays and Sundays. Read more>>

Jennifer Callahan

I have always had a love for photography, even as a small child. I can remember sitting with my grandmother for hours looking through old photo albums, admiring the people and places in them. My mom would say that I loved being in front of the camera as a child, haha! Read more>>

Don Johle

For the last 33 years we’ve seen many changes in the bicycle industry. There’s been ups and downs but we’ve managed to survive. We’ve seen a lot of bicycle shops in the area come and go. We’re one of the last few remaining “mom & pop” shops left. We cater to a wide range of cycling needs from entry level first time riders to seasoned professionals. Read more>>

Courtney Aspelund, Kekela Aspelund

Courtney: I grew up in South Texas with a single mom who worked 60 hours a week in restaurant management. As a result, I grew up on foods that came out of a box. When I turned 18 and moved out on my own, I started to explore food. Read more>>

Joshua Hohweiler

I’ve heard it said that you’re only one decision away from a totally different life. For me that decision came in the fall of 2012 when I started my first company, Greater Than Gatsby. Prior to that, I was working a typical 9 to 5 desk job, but I would come home every night “data-faced” and unfulfilled. Read more>>

Warren Gold

Well, I had worked for some of the country’s largest national sign companies, starting as a Project Manager, and working my way up to Business Unit Manager. In 2004 I decided I needed a break from the business and wound up taking a position with Starbucks Coffee Company as a Sr. Development Manager for the Central US region. Read more>>

Lauren Watson

Ever since I was a little girl I loved being physically active and going to the gym. Some of my best memories are regularly tagging along with my mom to her step aerobics and body sculpting classes at the YMCA, or doing her Sunny Omartian aerobics workout videos at home for fun. Read more>>

Ron Foppen

In 2008, I was working with a company that installed Artwork and found that I was good at it because of the math involved and I was always smart at math. However in the summer of 2008 I was let go and also was diagnosed with cancer couple of months later. Read more>>
