Robyn and Maria's new studio!

Robyn and Maria's new studio!

I am so proud of these two...I was in San Francisco for the summer last year and I met these two wonderful ladies, did a little friendly consult, and just days later were studio hunting! We found this little gem in the rough on Union Street, in trendy Cow Hollow. Fast forward seven months later and the renovation is complete and Vertie' is ready to open her doors. Maria Mrasek writes "...we are officially open! I am as proud as a new momma but this is something different, I got to design and create a space that is truly me, with my work blown up HUGE! Tutt and I built and created every inch, I am a proud wife as well. We also got to meet and become partners with two amazing people, Robyn and Shawn (Kessler). We LOVE it! it has turned out exactly as we both dreamed...a little eclectic and funky but warm and yummy. And, we owe it all to you..you were the push and the drive and the little birdie on our shoulders...thanks SOOOO much! The outside still has a ways to go...but it looks really cute for now! Wait till all the details come in to play!"

I can't wait! I may even have to come for an in-person inspection...

There are the obvious benefits to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU. Then there are the not so obvious obstacles to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU! Everything is on your shoulders. You must have self-discipline to get things done on your own time, all while wearing 100 different hats. I am my own editor, creative director, location scouter, accountant, marketing material designer, client care and customer support team, the photographer, and so much more!
