Do you start a business as a solopreneur or have a partner? My guests on today’s show of Mental Wealth for Entrepreneurs Podcast are Stephanie Howerton and Jenny Rawson de Venegas, the founders of The Local Artisan Collective who share their views on the power of partnership.
Stephanie Howerton and Jenny Rawson de Venegas are the founders of The Local Artisan Collective are both moms, entrepreneurs & artists. They met while selling their art at local art festivals and boutiques, and over the years, they have each created a loyal following. Their mission is to help other artists to succeed. They are working on creating an amazing community space that offers local artists a venue to sell their work, teach classes to the community & have studio space for artists to work. They have found a great home nestled close to the Junction Theater on Kiesel Ave.
Stephanie graduated college, with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology and Art. With a passion for giving back to the community she worked in social work for 17 years. She has now been working the last 11 years with the arts in her own business, Our Children’s Earth, LLC. She loves expressing her creativity while being eco-friendly and staying home with her children. She is excited to help create this amazing community space to support others to accomplish their dreams. Jenny is a former junior high wood shop teacher who married René, a 16th generation silversmith from Colombia. They create hand crafted fine jewelry and sell it at art festivals, through their business, Galleon’s Gold Jewelry, LLC. Rene also teaches silversmithing and jewelry making classes at our shop. Together, Stephanie and Jenny are thrilled to build a fabulous space where local artists can sell their work, others can learn various art mediums through classes and we can all do amazing things working together.
