Hidden Gems: Garland

Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series.  Check out some of Garland’s gems below.

When I was 20 years old I was working an admin job at a big insurance company. At this age, I had never even purchased insurance, and it was all very foreign to me. However, I knew it was something that I could do and looked like a promising career. I would walk past the large group of male-dominated sales agents. Read more>>

It started when an old friend of mine from high school texted me asking to make his wedding video! I honestly thought he was joking. I was in my senior year of college, and I haven’t shot a video in over four years. Also, the only equipment I had was my Canon Rebel T3i and the kit lens. Read more>>
