Our community is made up of brilliant artists, creatives and entrepreneurs, but many of them are also dedicated parents and so we asked them an in port at question: If you are a parent, what do you think is the most important thing you’ve done as a parent in terms of the impact on your children?

Kim Wilson | Director of the Styling and Beauty at Walter Schupfer Management of CA

As a mother of 3 girls. I think one of the most important things I can share with them is my humaneness. I have shared repeatedly how important it is to care for the world around them. I have also told them how much I love my career and all the benefits it has given me as a mother. Obviously as a women, financial independence is important and something that is mine outside the home. I love my job. My daughters see the rewards and benefits but they know there are always challenges .I do my best and keep it real with them. They have gone along this ride with me and they know all my stories. about work. With out them, none of this would matter. Read more>>

Stacy & Sandro Chiavaro | Interior Designer & Cabinet Maker

We come from incredibly hard working families, Sandro grew up in Switzerland in a close-knit Sicilian family and and I grew up with a German mid-west upbringing. Work is something you take pride in, not just a vehicle to make a living. We chose to build our lives around hard work and passion. In return, our work gives back to us in ways we never imagined. Most importantly, the freedom of having flexibility to be present when our daughter needs us (volunteer for library duty, field trips, homework). Something we would never achieve if we didn’t work hard doing something we love. We’ll know we did something right when our daughter finds what she loves most and dedicates a career to fulfilling her passion. Read more>>
