Kella Price

I have always loved to be active. I was a lacrosse player in college and later a lacrosse coach and swim instructor. When my husband deployed for the first time, I found exercising at the gym to be a great way to keep a positive outlook (thanks to happy endorphins!). After having kids, I needed to exercise for stress relief. I had more energy to play with my kids and felt better about myself when I was taking good care of my body. I love helping others — especially moms– do the same. Read more>>

I was working as a graphic designer as a college grad from TCU and wanted something to supplement my music throughout the day. When I first started listening to poetry, rather than read it as I always had previously, my creative being lit up. As a former actress with a fondness for the stage, I devoured poetry with ferocious jealousy, as I kept thinking to myself, “I wish I could do that!”. It turns out – all it takes is the desire to make a dream happen. Read more>>

I decided to make my first decorated cake when my daughter turned two, and I thought about baking her cake. I had always loved baking, but I had never decorated a cake. It didn’t turn out great, but I loved the experience, so I decided to learn more. I experimented with recipes and perfected my decorating skills over the years. Then a few friends began to order cakes or cookies for their events, but when a neighbor put a picture of a cake I made for her on Facebook. Read more>>

My love of poetry and creative writing stems from my childhood. I was always an avid book reader and developed a love for literature at an early age. My 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Bradford, introduced me to the literary elements of poetry, which allowed me to delve into the art of writing further. It didn’t take long for me to discover my gift in my ability to create visceral images with words. Read more>>

I have a passion for traveling, creative projects, and inspiring others to pursue a lifestyle that evokes joy. When I created Earthbuds, it was just for fun, but I soon found that I was able to create a brand out of it and make income while pursuing a lifestyle that allowed me to enjoy my job. Eventually, the brand will grow to be a resource for lifestyle design + minimal practical products for traveling consumers. Read more>>

I’ve been singing my whole life, ever since I could remember, and I picked up the guitar when I was 12. I always enjoyed performing in front of an audience, whether it was elementary school talent shows, or putting on some little show where I was a “pop star” in front of my family. I started playing my guitar and singing as a hobby at the local restaurants in my neighborhood when I was 16, and this was just me singing like 10 songs total. Read more>>

Cassie Goodman

My story, like many others, starts with a rude awakening of what the real world actually is. Financial responsibilities are daunting when you are in your early twenties and only want to obligate social responsibilities. I found my way into the service industry when I was 25 years old. Before that, I worked retail, a 9-5 corporate job, tried college and nothing ever felt like “home” to me. I was waiting tables at 25 years old. Read more>>

Since beginning CrossFit in 2011, I have developed a strong belief that CrossFit is the most fun and effective way to exercise. I have been coaching CrossFit since 2012 and have been a regional competitor as both an individual and as part of a team. Now I no longer compete in CrossFit, and my focus has shifted from being a competitor towards coaching, relationship building, and owning a CrossFit gym. Through all of my experiences with CrossFit over the years. Read more>>
