Luke Alderman

To explain how the vision of Ntuitive came into fruition I have to explain how it was even possible for the idea of the concept to present itself to me in the first place, and believe me I’m trying to keep it short. Throughout my life I have always carried with me a sort of diverse perception of reality that I had never been able to explain. Read more>>

Lanelle Henderson

I started in computer graphics when I relocated to Atlanta from New York City. In 1991, my role at the CDC was creating presentations, designing publications and web design. These skills allowed me to start freelancing and servicing a variety clients with design services. I decided to finish my B.S. degree in Business Administration with a focus on Hospitality Management at Georgia State University which opened new doors in event management, marketing and business. Read more>>

I started blogging back in 2014, and it was just a fun creative outlet for me! I originally went to school for Fashion Design but since there aren’t many design opportunities in Atlanta, I ended up having to change industries. I was really sad that I couldn’t work in the field I was most passionate about, so I started blogging to fill that void. Read more>>

Casey Renee Cosplay Welsch

In the summer of 2013 I had just moved to Chicago from Phoenix Arizona, I was new in town, didn’t have many friends and was looking for a hobby to fill my time so I bought an $80 sewing machine on Amazon and decided I would make my first costume to wear at a convention. Read more>>

Alyssa Hollis

I started photography or should I say I picked up a camera which happened to be the best gift I ever received in my life almost 10 years ago. I did not get serious with my business until about 5 years ago after I had my second son. I started with photographing every single genre of photography I could in the beginning. Read more>>

Rosie Falconi

I was extremely awkward and shy as a kid and didn’t really fit in. Drawing and painting became a way for me to calm my mind and express myself. I loved creating art and decided to pursue a Commercial Art degree after high school. Read more>>

Alexandra Colina

When I started riding 5 years ago, I was introduced to all the photography potential that was brought with horses. I saved up for a little while and bought my first camera and kit lens set and began taking pictures of friends at horse shows. After a while, I attended the Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event, and that’s when my interest truly sparked. Read more>>

Monica Kirkland

Never in a million years did I think that I would be able to walk away from my corporate job to do photography of all things. But it happened. Several years ago I started dabbling in jewelry design and had so much fun with it! Eventually I found myself selling to boutiques and brides, but marketing with iPhone photos and Instagram editing. Read more>>

Shelbie Fredericks

I never thought I would run a business, let alone my own business. I’m an artist. I don’t understand business or finances. But I’ve always wanted to do something with my art other than fill sketchbooks and post on Instagram. Read more>>

MiMi Thomas

My name is MiMi Thomas. I’m 25 years old and I’m from a small city outside of Tallahassee Florida called Quincy. I grew up with both parents, a brother and sister. My mom is German and my dad is African American. I started cutting hair at 14 years old. I use to cut neighbor kids and family members throughout the years. Read more>>

Misty Lathem Sheffield

My journey to owning a Tutor Doctor franchise started in my own home. I am a mom of three teenage/young adult children. My children have very different academic strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. I tried a variety of tutoring models and homework help for my children through the years. Read more>>

Chris Magdalenski

I’ve been pursuing still photography on more or less a hobbyist level for as long as I can remember. From a fairly young age I’ve had some kind of camera, and though I’ve gone through periods where I haven’t picked it up as much, I’ve always found my way back to it. Read more>>

Katy Lockhart

Being a kid of the 80’s, my first exposure to the wheel was (of course) Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in Ghost. Like wowza, who wouldn’t want to play on the potter’s wheel? Despite my gravitation towards the wheel, I was only able to take a ceramics handbuilding class in college…and I earned a C. Really. Read more>>

Asha Patel

I was born in London to Indian parents, so my design palate — think, traditional eastern heirlooms and customs set against a modern, western backdrop — infinitely rich, too. Despite loving art and fashion from an early age, I knew way better than to announce to my parents that that was going to be my lot in life! Read more>>
