Thank you to everyone who came to the Creative Mornings Los Angeles event at the Poketo store last Friday! It was an honor to hear the stories of two individuals, entrepreneurs, and brand visionaries, Sharon Montrose and Clare Vivier.
We have been huge supporters of Creative Mornings, as attendees, as a speaker, and now for the first time, as a host. The Poketo store was packed and bustling before 8am, and it was amazing to see everyone mingling and enjoying their morning fuel with Handsome Coffee and ice-cream from the Be Cool Cow Truck. Both Sharon and Clare were amazing, touching on failure, success, and business. One quote that resonated with me in particular was one that Sharon ended her presentation with, “Your desire for success must be greater than your fear of failure”. Yes.

As always, Creative Mornings was inspiring and humbling. Hearing photographer Sharon Montrose and handbag designer Clare Vivier speak from the heart, sharing their experiences of starting their small businesses from scratch, their successes and failures – it truly resonated with the audience.
