I received this letter today from one of our newest Members (and a Startup), wanting to tell her story of her first 30 days at WorkLodge. So many people ask us what life at the Lodge is like compared to other office space. I’ll let Lauren explain why in her own words!
Taking the plunge from virtual member to officing Lodger at WorkLodge took some faith and a tad of “crazy” if you ask me. After graduating from fashion design school in 2016, I became a virtual member at the Vintage Park location, not only to legitimize my brand (with a physical business address), but also to chat up fellow entrepreneurs on occasion.
I met career strategist Natasha Ferguson www.gothired.net at an event I hosted here. I was looking for some direction in my business and after meeting with Natasha, we determined that I could establish a color consulting firm while also launching the fashion brand. You see, color and color analysis form part of my professional past, and I am fully credentialed in these areas.
I moved into WorkLodge on September 1, 2017, and the first 30 days have been a whirlwind in the best possible sense. Here are some highlights:
Most importantly, I was selected by master colorist Darin Wright of www.eleablake.com to be trained on her state-of-the-art color analysis system, ebhues. Darin and I were both trained years ago on the same color analysis system, but she has since developed a more customized, expanded and proprietary system of her own, available until now only in her Chattanooga, Tennessee studio. I will become Darin’s first and only trained ebhues color analyst in the world.
What I will be able to offer the Houston community is something they cannot find anywhere else except with Darin Wright herself.
All in all, I feel so incredibly blessed and grateful for the multitude of opportunities that have come my way since transitioning to full-time Lodger here at WorkLodge.
Thank you Vintage Park team, for the enthusiasm and support you have offered during my first month.
