During my time away from the “blogosphere”, I decided to change this up a bit. While I think current events are relevant, and information on politics, the economy, and (of course) entrepreneurship can be invaluable, featuring stories that are perhaps less mainstream is more desirable to me. While still related to business, these news articles and stories will focus on a more unique variety of sectors, as well as topics that are of great personal interest to me.
I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t understand the need for a break now and then. Whether a physical or a mental break, today’s world is loud and elaborate, and always shifting. It’s a whirlwind that cares very little about your need to stay sane.
During the last month, I’ve given considerable thought to when I last had a real break, and honestly couldn’t remember. I’m not writing this to gain sympathy, nor am I writing it to excuse the month-long (or perhaps more) lapse in time that I’ve gone without diligently creating something within this space.

Last week I FINALLY began my YouTube vlog, which I introduced here. I’m NOT great at being on camera, but I look forward to becoming better and interacting with more of you virtually. As I mention in the video, if there’s a topic you want to be discussed please feel free to reach out and let me know.
I think most of us agree that a well-decorated space goes a long way. In recent years, Houzz has become a relatively great success within the interior design e-commerce market. With over $165M total raised (currently being led by a tier 1 investor), one acquisition under their belt, and great upside potential for an IPO, they’re currently the largest of their kind. While becoming a venture-backed (design) company certainly isn’t right for every organization, several smaller entrepreneurial interior design platforms are blossoming within the e-commerce market and are worth a look. Let’s check em’ out.
