We had the good fortune of connecting with Kasie Weinandt and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kasie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was the intention to share my talents with other people and to develop and learn through the growing process. I thought that have my own business gave me the creative freedom to do so and a good reason to get up and give it my all each day.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love what I do and would be lost without it! My art make me who I am, it’s my way of expressing myself. I’ve learned to never give up and to push through the hard times because of my art.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well this is my first year in LA! I would start by doing a road trip and going to the Malibu beaches, head over to Santa Barbara for some water activities and up the sequoia national park for some camping. Eating at all the healthy local joints in the way. Come back to la and go checkout the Getty. I’ve never been before.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?

You guys have given me so much knowledge and support and have cared about me and my clients tremendously. My friends and family have always been supportive and shown me a lot of love.
