The Company You Keep Podcast- Meet The Makers!

Hello and good day! I thought it would be interesting to sit down with my husband, Rob, to tell our story on the podcast!

This episode is really fun and relaxed, and my husband and I laugh about all the crazy decisions we’ve made along the way that helped us become successful entrepreneurs. If you are interested in starting a Kickstarter campaign, you can learn how Rob successfully launched and funded a $10,000 campaign to get an urban farm up and running in the middle of New Orleans.

We chat about starting up the farm in New Orleans, law school, starting Mrs. Vintage, selling Mrs. Vintage, and the opening and closing our retail store Homestead.

Rob and I also discuss the importance of taking risks and sometimes going against the status quo. Take a listen and let me know what you think!

  1. Hi Julia, I was wondering if you are still involved with Praxis now that you’ve moved a couple time zones away? I just learned about the program today (I’m in Lafayette, LA) and found your event planning site through it. (Side note–vintage/antique furniture store, old-timey general store, event planning, and an urban farm!?!? I’m in love with you and Rob…just ignore that I’m 31 and happily married.) You’ve already inspired me, and I have much more I would love to say and ask, but it’s not really appropriate for a blog comment section. 🙂

    • Hi Kim! We are still involved with Praxis, we’re currently looking for a fall marketing assistant. I haven’t heard from them in a while, so thanks for reminding me to follow up! Feel free to contact me directly, and thank you so much for your sweet words!
